Do you belong to those people who won’t leave the house without having had a large cup of coffee? Do you like to spend a leisurely time over an aromatic cup in a café, leafing through a book, or you prefer to down your espresso while you’re going presto about your business?
All over the world, when people hear about the Czech Republic, beer is the first drink (or even the first thing) that comes to mind. However true that may be, Brno has had a long tradition of coffee drinking, and this habit is more than alive here today. The first café in this country was opened in Brno by Turk Ahmed in 1702, archaeologists proved it by finding remnants of a coffee cup originating in Turkey from the first half of the 18th century in Veselá Street, and by the end of the 19th century there were 30 larger and 63 smaller cafés in Brno. Even our own BEC offices are located in the premises of a famous Café Biber from the 1930’s!
After a 60-year hiatus caused by the previous regime, cafés have found their way back into Brno life, and the scene is so vibrant is if it never left. If you’re a coffee lover, you’ve surely found your favourite café spot yourself – or maybe you’re still looking for it?
Join experienced barista, café consultant and coach, the effervescent Katka Eichlerová from KAVATEAM, organiser of the famed Brno Coffee Week, for an evening of exploring the history, character and taste of coffee in all its variety and its presence in Brno. And then just close your eyes, take a deep breath, and – aaaaaaaaahhhhh…… 😉
