After all, boasting over 1,000 different aromas coffee offers just as many variation options for creative minds at the counter. Current top trends: Nitro and Cold Brew. From 7 to 9 October 2019 Bar Convent Berlin will show why coffee has now stopped living in the shadows and is increasingly moving into the limelight at bars.

RUM - Respected. Revitalized. Revolutionized. The quality spirit has been on a rise.

The leading trade show for the bar and beverage industry will honor Rum with a stage of its own. Together with Ian Burrell, the Kühlhaus will solely present all of this spirit’s facets. The Bar Convent Berlin will take place from 7 to 9 October.
