This was last week in between all the trade show hustle... A fruity Kenyan espresso served as a Cappuccino at @machhoerndlkaffee in Nuremberg. Alas I didnโ€™t have more time to check out the specialty coffee scene over there incl. @kaffehoerna that my dear coffee friend Nadja took over just recently. Well, I guess, I need to go back to Nuremberg. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
The day here in Berlin started as dark and moody as this shot ๐Ÿ“ธ right here... but thereโ€™s a lot on my to do list that wants to be done โœ… Most of all my taxes of 2017 that I finally want to hand over to my tax accountant today - wish me luck guys! โ˜˜๏ธ๐Ÿค—โœจ

With myself becoming more professional and building my own brand around being a specialty coffee expert & coffee writer ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ’ป Iโ€™m also spinning my head around different ideas ๐Ÿ’ก of my coffeetography lately. For my articles and blog posts, but a lot also for my Instagram account. ๐Ÿ“ฑ
Iโ€™ve done several close ups of coffee beverages & drinks, shots of people brewing or making coffee โ˜•๏ธ and shots at cafes, coffee shops & roasteries.

I should do more experiments... โš—๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿง
Seriously, doing that Chemex brewing Test in my kitchen and shooting that little IGTV video last weekend was so much fun!!! ๐Ÿค—โœจ
This is the outcome of the photos I took after doing the experiment a second time. ๐Ÿ“ธ First time I was too busy talking and recording myself on video... ๐Ÿ“น 
You have no clue, what Iโ€™m actually talking about!?! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜…
No worries, Iโ€™ll explain: I brewed some tea ๐Ÿต roasted green tea - Hลji-Cha - from @obubuteafarms in Japan ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต last Saturday. Nothing special, yet, I know... BUT! I used my Chemex (!) for brewing the tea! Woaaahh! Crazy Germans!!! ๐Ÿคช

Another personal post that feels like getting written down just perfectly today... ๐Ÿ’ซ
I received feedback from one of my followers just recently: Why Iโ€™ve had promoted a certain coffee place that had just opened a couple weeks ago in a neighborhood that is pretty densely packed with cafes already... An area that is hit hard by gentrification in the past years a lot... A shop that is being discussed about for its attitude & approach... ๐Ÿ—ฃ
The follower stated that I apparently didnโ€™t care much about this issue... And you know, that hit me really hard! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I felt judged for not having an opinion... I felt personally rejected. ๐Ÿ˜ณ 
I know, itโ€™s totally my business of feeling rejection... But I guess, this is part of becoming a coffee expert and influencer, too: People are expecting you to have an opinion, to like or dislike certain things and to judge. 
But, please guys, judge for yourselves! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
The places & brands Iโ€™m suggesting, the recommendations Iโ€™m doing are all based on my personal approach: I love to explore new coffee (sometimes tea) related stuff. ๐Ÿ’โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‹ I love to check out new places, looking for trends & innovations. โœจ
My heart โ™ฅ๏ธ is wide open for everything and everyone. I try not to judge others for their approach and opinion... If you donโ€™t like a place or certain people I introduce here, please donโ€™t go there / talk to them! Weโ€™re all part of an amazing community! Letโ€™s not judge each other! ๐Ÿค—โ˜•๏ธโœจ Iโ€™d love to hear your thoughts on this! Happy Monday! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Credits to @waytocoffee

What a week... ๐Ÿ˜† Itโ€™s definitely been a while that I traveled to so many different places and cities, attended such a broad variety of events... All coffee โ˜•๏ธ related! It already started Sunday night at Mr. Susan with some uber fancy coffee cocktails ๐Ÿน prepared by @martin_hudak โœจ

Istanbul. What an interesting destination to travel to you have been! โœจ
Not only in terms of coffee and cafes, but also because of its people and the city itself, of course. ๐ŸŒ‡๐Ÿ•Œ
Connecting to locals was and will always be the most important part of traveling to another country ๐Ÿ—บ or city ๐ŸŒƒ though. Iโ€™m extremely grateful for being able to connect with like-minded women like my Airbnb host and flat mate for a week Asli, when staying in Istanbul. ๐Ÿค— Those connections will be always worth skipping all the sightseeing and touristy spots.๐Ÿ’ซ
Are you more of a bucket / check list or the individual traveler seeking to connect with locals? ๐Ÿค”
The photo ๐Ÿ“ธ shows a Shakerato at @petracoffee, one of their many cold coffee signature drinks theyโ€™re offering. If you go to Istanbul, check out their big roasting facility - itโ€™s beautiful ๐Ÿ˜

With @berlincoffeefestival being over now for a couple days, the excitement and happiness that everything went well with my projects & events settled and gave way to some negative self-talk, doubts and worries accompanied by feelings of not being able to be the coffee professional I eventually want to be and not being good enough.

โ€œCoffee cocktails are the futureโ€ - Martin Hudak @martin_hudak โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿฅƒ Part of my journey within specialty coffee has always been exploring all the amazing possibilities that come with mixing coffee, be it espresso, filter coffee or #coldbrew, with other ingredients such as sirups, lemonades, juices to create some delicious coffee mocktails or to add some Booze for even more crazy possibilities! โœจ
During my coffee travels Iโ€™ve always loved to try-taste those drinks because it showcases the creativity and craft that are behind both, the coffee AND the bar culture. ๐Ÿคฉ
For the exklusive dinner event โ€˜Coffee meets Power Foodโ€™ that Iโ€™m hosting with chef @michaelhoffmannberlin we teamed up with the cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž guys from @philosoffee.de to create a sparkling โœจ Aperitif as well as this ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿปsimple, yet, amazingly delicious coffee cocktail ๐Ÿน for everyone attending โ€˜Coffee meets Power Foodโ€™ on September 1st!

โ€œCoffee cocktails are the futureโ€ - Martin Hudak @martin_hudak โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿฅƒ Part of my journey within specialty coffee has always been exploring all the amazing possibilities that come with mixing coffee, be it espresso, filter coffee or #coldbrew , with other ingredients such as sirups, lemonades, juices to create some delicious coffee mocktails or to add some Booze for even more crazy possibilities! โœจ During my coffee travels Iโ€™ve always loved to try-taste those drinks because it showcases the creativity and craft that are behind both, the coffee AND the bar culture. ๐Ÿคฉ For the exklusive dinner event โ€˜Coffee meets Power Foodโ€™ that Iโ€™m hosting with chef @michaelhoffmannberlin we teamed up with the cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž guys from @philosoffee.de to create a sparkling โœจ Aperitif as well as this ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿปsimple, yet, amazingly delicious coffee cocktail ๐Ÿน for everyone attending โ€˜Coffee meets Power Foodโ€™ on September 1st!

The personal touch...
What impresses me most in Third Wave cafes is not the cool and hip designs or the fancy drinks or the wall of (coffee) fame of all those amazing specialty coffee roasters... what touches me is an owner of a cafe telling me about childhood memories and introducing me into new coffee flavors by serving coffee with currants to help me understand that coffee is indeed a fruit ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’โ˜•๏ธ
More about design thinking in Third Wave shops vs personal stories and people behind a brand in a new article I just finished for @coffeeness_ ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ’ป โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ˜•
