The best coffee, and what does “Third Wave” mean, anyway?

From Less Political to the Stockholm Espresso Club: We show you the best Hamburg Third Wave Places and explain the term “Third Wave”

Coffee and Hamburg go hand in hand. After all, every cup of coffee drunk in Germany arrives in the country via the Hamburg docks. But we are ahead in coffee matters not only because we import it: over the past few years, a respectable Third Wave scene has become established in Hamburg. “Third Wave” refers to the third wave of the coffee movement which, after the initial success of filter coffee in the 1950s and 60s and the espresso drinks in the late 1990s, brings back the brewed coffee in an unprecedented quality. Third Wave represents a classification of coffee (just like wine) according to its original character and to carve out different taste nuances in processing.

And these are the “Third Wave places to be” in Hamburg:

A Hamburg original: The Franzbrötchen

There are many stories about the origins of the Franzbrötchen. About whether Hamburgers were trying to create a croissant, or fried a baguette in fat – the result still belongs to Hamburg as much as the city coat of arms.

Typical Hamburg: Portuguese gastronomy

The Portuguese Quarter – which is only its unofficial name – is located between landing bridges, the Venusberg and the Neustadt area. Its proximity to the docks made this quarter a major attraction for Portuguese sailors in the 1960s. 

Many guest workers from Portugal landed here – but not all of them found a job during the recession. And so many Portuguese set up their own restaurants and had a large impact on the Hamburg gastronomy scene. In addition to the Portuguese Galao (milky coffee) and the Pastéis de Nata (vanilla tartlets), the Portuguese croissant established itself as a snack.

Traditionally, the croissant is topped with cheese or serrano ham and toasted and then buttered, making it a rich but very tasty snack.
