10.01.2023Learning without coffee is possible, but pointless

The Coffee-Bike - new for you in the WiSo tube

1 / 2

After months of deprivation, there's finally coffee again at fair prices in the coffee bar in the WiSo tube. The WiSo Deanery has pulled out all the stops to offer you a chance to enjoy a good coffee directly in the WiSo wing. The result: since 28.11.2022, a Coffee-Bike has been available for all students and staff.

The coffee specialities are brewed from 100% organic premium Arabica beans of the Caferino brand. You'll be spoilt for choice: a quick espresso / espresso doppio or a latte macchiato in XL with an extra espresso shot? The "non-coffee drinkers" have also been catered for. Chai latte and various teas are available. Or perhaps you would prefer a hot chocolate? Of course, you can refine your drink with a syrup of your choice or choose the vegan version with a milk alternative.

For every Caferino espresso pack sold or used, the company says it donates 10 cents to the aid organisation terre des hommes - help for children in need. We think that's a good thing!


The Coffee-Bike was in the WiSo tube from December 2022 to early February 2023. It helped us get through the dark, cold season by serving up the finest caffeine and other hot delicacies. Many thanks to the Coffee-Bike team for this great bridge!

From April 2023, the coffee bar of the Kölner Studierendenwerk will provide us with delicious drinks and snacks at the same location. (More information coming soon)

Opening hours WiSo coffee bar from 03.04.2023
