When Dobra Materia opened last May, they marked their launch by handing out slices of cake baked to look like the building in which they’re set. As a gesture, it said much for their enthusiasm for Muranów and their will to connect to their neighbors. And in a round about way, that’s what this place is all about: connection.
Sleek low-lying black chairs hold the line with the bottom of the window pane encouraging gazing and making for an easy lounging experience. Hits of yellow in the porcelain cups provide a nice little accent, whilst there’s a few tables capable of holding a laptop should you fancy a bit of remote working.
In The Beans
Co-owners Marta and Andrzej are always sure to have a stock of beans from the Bydgoszcz-based Norwegian roaster Audun Sørbotten. In addition, other represented roasters include HAYB, Heresy, Momento, Five Elephant and Bracia Ziółkowscy.
Food is covered by way of cakes from vegan producers such as Miód Makina and Sadki. Away from coffee, drinks include winter winners such as their non-alcoholic mulled wine – called ‘meltwine’, it’s made using juices from Łąckie Ogrody (a brand certified by Slow Food Polska). Specifically, that means apple juice with cinnamon and rosemary, or plum juice with ginger, cinnamon and dried orange.
Keep an eye on their Facebook page for the cupping sessions where you can try all their coffees to see which one is your new favorite of the month.
