Bringing Together the Aspects of Our Work We Like Best

About Us

Companion Coffee is Shawn Barber and Chris Onton. After spending a number of years exploring various roles in the specialty coffee industry in Vancouver, Perth and Berlin, we launched Companion in 2013 with the aim of creating a platform that gave us the chance to bring together the aspects of working with coffee and tea that we like best.

Cafe Showroom

Companion Coffee operates in association with Voo Store in Kreuzberg, Berlin. Our cafe aims to source the best espresso possible from a trusted network of quality-focused roasters from across Europe and further abroad and humbly share it with our customers in a relaxed environment.   The complete Companion Tea range is available to enjoy in the cafe as well as to take home, alongside coffee beans and brew equipment.     WHERE WE ARE — N 52° 30′ 3.38″


We are applying the same ethics that drive the specialty coffee sector in terms of transparency, ethics and an absolute quality focus while curating a tea range that allows us to express what excites us so much about tea.   Our offerings will vary as we transition through different harvest seasons and discover new teas we are excited to share. Our selection process is a thorough exercise in sampling, reviewing and sourcing with the goal of providing a tea range that is unique and exceptional. We maintain an unrelenting focus on quality while aiming to get ever closer to the people producing the crop. Our current range is available for purchase in the cafe.   Please contact us for wholesale inquiries.
