Yet more innovation: not long after the launch of Brezel Lovers, casualfood is introducing another new concept. The company is opening “Beans & Barley – Crafted Coffee and Beer” at Berlin-Schönefeld Airport, offering customers crafted beer and high-quality speciality coffees around the clock in space of just under 40 square metres. The concept also offers sweet and savoury snacks. Beans & Barley is located air side on Level 1 of Berlin-Schönefeld’s Terminal A, in other words after security. With this new concept, casualfood is expanding its portfolio to twelve food service and store brands with a total of 56 outlets.
“Craft beer and coffee are a great match. Both beverages have developed incredibly strongly in recent years and have become veritable indulgence products boasting a great deal of variety. For us, it was therefore the obvious thing to do to bring these two favourites together within a single concept and offer them as Beans & Barley,” say Stefan Weber and Michael Weigel, Managing Partners of casualfood GmbH.
Focus on quality and sustainability
Beans & Barley offers a wide array of traditional beer products and 15 special craft beers of the brands Stone Brewing, Braufactum and Berliner Berg. The speciality coffees offered are likewise of high quality: the coffee beans are sourced from casualfood’s own roasting facility, where they undergo an especially gentle drum roasting process. An extra special highlight is the nitro cold brew coffee. Here, the nutty and chocolatey cold brew is enriched with nitrogen and is freshly drawn ice-cold to achieve a mild and creamy taste. Naturally, various flavours are available such as almond, caramel, toasted marshmallow and Irish cream as well as a wide selection of types of milk such as almond milk, oat milk, soya milk and lactose-free milk.
Lovingly prepared snacks
The snacks offered are diverse and lovingly prepared: there are various bun creations such as pulled chicken or Berlin meatballs as well as a vegetarian option with feta and olives. At the fresh food counter, the guest will find options including a vegan quinoa salad, a Mediterranean pasta salad, healthy muesli or a delicious chocolate blancmange.
Beans & Barley is just the thing for guests looking for: more flavour and indulgence, more freshness and craftsmanship, more atmosphere and creativity, and more exclusivity and originality. As with many of the other casualfood concepts, there are also souvenirs on offer, the highlights of the new concept being a coffee brewer, a Berlin to-go coffee cup and a Weducer cup made of pressed coffee grounds.
