Quick Intro to the Flat White

Originating from Australia, this espresso-based drink has outlasted the trends, and now has a well-received home in practically any Berlin coffee shop.

Over the years, Berlin really has become a haven for coffee consumers, especially if you’re a Flat White lover. Whether or not you’ve already found your favourite Flat White in the city, these notable seven really do deserve a spot on your to-drink list.

Where Are the Best Flat Whites to Try in Berlin? 

I will share that I am not a coffee connoisseur, just a cheery coffee consumer who has a large place in my heart for Flat Whites. Without further hesitation, here are the 7 Flat Whites to try in Berlin for every coffee lover. In no particular order, of course.

Chapter One Coffee, Kreuzberg

Chapter One Coffee has a lovely ambiance, and that’s especially seen in their Flat Whites: quintessential and aromatic, with a signature slightly fruity aftertaste. 

Their practice values classic production, while being open to a number of brewing methods including French Press, Syphon, V60, Chemex and Aeropress.

The staff is always very catering to get you the best coffee experience, and one of the co-owners even came in second in Germany’s national barista championships in 2002!

You’ll find Chapter One at Mittenwalder Straße 30 in Kreuzberg, where a flat white costs €3.10.


Oh, Spro. I really could write a whole article about everything I like here. Small and cozy, and full of life, with the kind of charm that makes me revisit again and again. Spro is actually slang for espresso, and this café really lives up to its name.

They carry two types of coffee beans: their original which is a lighter roast, directly traded from Las Chicharras plantation in Mexico, and their second which is a blend of the first, with 20% Indian Harley Estate Robusta.

With any proper Flat White, the taste of coffee should be stronger than the milk, making the espresso (or the ‘spro) an important character, and Spro just gets that. Scones are also their specialty, so try one of their scone plates and save room for a pastry or two!

  1. These all look and sound like great places to stop for a flat white! I would love to visit one of them while in Berlin and get a cake as well.

  2. I’m a coffee lover, so only SPRO was a new place for me here. And… they have much more than Flat White (which I haven’t yet tried) – they have a peanut butter Mocca. Have seen it only there.
    And &Coffee based in Charlottenburg definitely deserves a place in this top.
