DOGFRIENDS: YUMI CHOI

Bonanza Coffee Roasters were the first of their kind in Berlin. In 2006, long before there was a ‘third wave coffee’ scene, founders Yumi Choi and her business partner, Kiduk Reus, established their roastery and café, pioneering a movement focused on new brewing and transparency in the chain from farmer to flat white drinker. Harnessing ‘retro innovation’ roasting methods, Choi and her team experiment with old and new techniques to produce the finest flavours from their beans. Sixteen years on, ‘Bonanza’ is arguably a bi-word for the best beans in town. After a decade of satiating the caffeine-hungry entrepreneurs, artists, and creatives of Prenzlauer Berg, the duo opened a second café at the same site as their roastery in the neighbourhood of Kreuzberg. There you’ll find Choi most days, more often than not, flanked by her five-year-old dog, Choti.
