Toongs Coffee Roaster

The coffee aficionados behind this this place are not only passionate about coffee. But they are also big cycling fans. When I visited this place, there were always some guests, who came by bike. They roast their own beans onsite and prepare excellent Espressos and pour-over coffees. They mainly roast local coffee beans that are always selected by hand before and after the roasting process. As a result, every bag contains only the best beans. The atmosphere is exceptionally friendly.
