Vote Coffee Roastery
Eisenbahnstraße 43, 10997 Berlin, Germany
They are Philipp and Laurel, and they run the coffee roastery Vote in the heart of Kreuzberg. Since June 2016 they roast coffee in the space of Kaffe9 under the roof of Markthalle Neun. Their career began in the classic espresso culture and led them to the specialty world of coffee. They have experience in gastronomy, roasting, green coffee trade and events. They incorporate all of this into their day-to-day work, with the goal of blazing a progressive
way in the coffee world. Philipp Reichel, a native of Berlin, founded Kaffee9 in 2013 and ran it for 4 years. Besides running the café, he also created the Berlin coffee festival, which he curated from 2015 to 2019. Furthermore, in 2016, together with Peter Duran, he opened the café Isla Berlin, which was awarded for its concept. A café dedicated to circular economy. Philipp is the founder and managing director of the Vote. Laurel Carmichael, originally from New Zealand, has gained experience in various roasteries and cafés and brings this to the roastery. She is not only the moral compass in the roastery and the company, but also mainly responsible for green coffee purchasing and roasting.
