There are quite a few coffeeshops in Bonn, Germany, but my favorite place to enjoy a delicious cup of cappuccino is “Kessel´s Espresso Studio”.
Although this is not your typical coffeeshop, one of the friendly baristas will prepare an excellent cappuccino, espresso or hot chocolate for you (with that beautiful Faema E 61 coffee machine) while you ponder your decision whether you should go ahead and buy a few things while you are there.
The range of products includes espresso machines from a number of different manufacturers (such as Jura, Nivona, ECM, Rancilio, Vibiemme, and WMF) .
Then there it the selection of espresso and cappuccino cups and mugs. Then there are the Italian sweets like the Baci chocolates (“Kisses”) from Perugina, Torroncini (Sicilian nougat), cookies such as Amaretti (made with ground almonds and apricot pits), Ricciarelli (Tuscan almond cookies) or Cantuccini (crunchy Tucsan specialty). And then there is, of course, the wide selection of pre-ground or whole bean coffees from coffee companies/merchants such as Illy, Segafredo, Pellini, Nannini and Ionia, to name but a few.
You can enjoy your beverage inside the Studio or while sitting an one of the comfy wooden benches outside the store.
The Studio has been operated by Frank and Bianca Kessel for about eighteen years now with an ever growing clientele and is located on the beautiful “Friedrichstrasse” – a wonderful street with a pedestrian zone lined by a number of fantastic stores that are all worth a visit (I will post about some of them in the weeks to come).
