“Schön Kaffee in d´r kopp” (“Get a coffee in you”) is written above the alcove behind the counter, but even to non-natives like me the message is clear: this is where you get good coffee. The traditional kölsch phrase is also a reference to the café’s name, which in turn corresponds to the title of a song by Cologne-based traditional band Bläck Fööss. Kaffeebud is a cosy but exquisite space adorned with minimalist, selected interior decorations. Tiny brass candleholders are on the table, pretty pictures hang on the high walls. A large white chandelier is suspended from the ceiling. The kiosk-style counter is staffed with lovely people who artfully juggle espresso machines, percolators, siphons and aeropress coffee makers to produce the delicious black stuff. Scrumptious cakes and regional lemonades round off the menu. A great little place!
