Eröffnung Heltvi Kafi am Stauffacher

Opening of Heltvi Kafi at the Stauffacher

We are expanding the offer in the fashion store with "coffee to go". In the former Surfari clothing store, which we now operate as the Surfari Outlet, we have cleared out half of it and are now making serious business with Ernst from "Rent a Barista", at least the best coffee in town.

The official opening of the Coffee to go will take place on Saturday, October 3rd. We provide beer and snacks and look forward to the opening with you.

Here is some information about the operator Ernst from

Through my work as a service technician for coffee machines, I came into contact with all the Swiss coffee gurus, who told me about coffee with so much knowledge and enthusiasm as if it were a science in itself! You have to know, back then I drank my instant coffee every day and had no idea what really good coffee actually meant. Country of origin, cultivation height, roast factor and variety and such!

These new insights into the world of coffee kindled a fire of passion in me for the infinite variety and complexity of coffee culture. Driven by my ever-growing passion, I started devouring all kinds of books, learned tips and tricks from experienced baristas, absorbed all the information and practiced coffee preparation in every free minute. My kitchen was quickly converted into a coffee laboratory. Last year I finally quit my job to travel to Colombia for three months. There I got to know the farm aspect: cultivation, processing, etc. Since then I have been working with heart and soul at Henauer Kaffee in quality assurance and I live the art of coffee as Head Barista in the Zurich power station - and of course I'm always "at the käffele" a lot in my private life, now where I know what real coffee culture means!
