Great tea / coffee beans stores in Bern?

Hi,

As I'm unable to spend a day without several cups of these wonderful beverages (coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon), I was wondering what where the best options in Bern for tea and coffee lovers.

When in Paris, I get my tea from Mariage Frères and my coffee from Verlet. Should I stock up before arriving in Bern or are there great local options? From a quick research, I have come across La Cuccina for tea and Adriano / Freshly Roasted for coffee, but any further suggestion is most welcome (in Bern or Zürich, maybe Lausanne - there seems to be a large distributor of Mariage Frères in Vevey, but they are overpriced).

Thanks!

I've found Mariage Freres tea in Fribourg: http://www.papeterie-meyer.ch/boutique.html (you can see the tins stacked in the second picture) and the prices are close to the ones in France.

Thanks! Interesting place to find tea, but why not? I guess they only have the tin boxes, not the satchels.

I should add that I'm not necessarily stuck to these brands; most happy to discover new options, as long as they are really good!

In Bern, on the Laengasse, near the unitobler (part of the uni bern) is a tea shop, it's on the second block after the mittlestrasse, left side of the street coming from the bahnhof. They had a good rep among people at the uni, anyway.

Absolutely!: http://www.laenggasstee.ch/cms/kateg...rentid=&bild=1

They have a very large selection of teas from all over the world!

Adriano's is a very good place for coffee indeed! No need to stock up before comming here, welcome in advance!

Hi, I already posted this in some of the topics on coffee in this website but FYI, in Geneva there is an artisanal roaster called Viverra Coffee. You may want to check their website: www.viverracoffee.ch
