Interview with Corinne Schmitt-Bücheli und Mirjam Heitner-Heiniger, Managing Director of café del mundo

If you were a food, what would you be and why?

Corinne: Chocolate cake, everyone loves it.

Mirjam: Our house salad is crisp and fresh just like we are (laughs).

What is your recipe for success?

Mirjam: Passion and quality. We love people and like to spoil our guests with culinary delights. With creativity and heart, we create something delicious from individual products.

Corinne: We like good things – good coffee, good salads, good ciabattas and delicious croissants. That’s why we only offer really good things in our café.

What services do you offer?

Corinne: The combination of probably the best cappuccino and chocolate cake. The chocolate cake is even gluten-free with a lot of nuts and chocolate.

Mirjam: Every now and then, we also offer a vegan banana-nut cake.

What is the best seller in your café at the moment?

Mirjam: Our breakfast offer, a varied mixture of sweet and salty. Well-balanced, fresh, beautifully prepared and served in a friendly manner. Customers especially love our fresh bread.

Corinne: People nowadays take much more time for breakfast. Today, friends meet up to brunch or to have breakfast together.

Do you offer something as a gift?

Mirjam: Our voucher; it’s the perfect gift for a fellow human being who appreciates culinary experiences. This voucher is available at our café for ten or twenty francs.

Corinne: Our homemade Golden Latte. With a lot of love we create a syrup for milk drinks from turmeric and ginger. The recipe remains secret, however we like to share the pleasure.

What are you often asked by your customers?

Corinne: Where does your delicious coffee come from? When it comes to coffee, we attach great importance to quality. We love Italian coffee, especially the one from Mokasirs. In Indonesia and India, the beans are carefully sorted, and the coffee bean mix consists of 20% Arabica bean and 80% Robusta bean. The Robusta bean provides an outstanding crema.

Mirjam: Who creates your pretty menu boards? Romana Moser. She enchants our café with her beautiful handwriting and has already served in our café herself. We display her postcards under the Romana Schrift label.

What are your wishes for café del mundo?

Corinne: My dream is a small coffee mobile.

Mirjam: A take away ice cream window. Perfect for cooling down in summer. And, of course, that our business will carry on just as wonderful. We couldn’t survive without our great guests. We have known some of our customers for 13 years and are grateful to have become part of their everyday lives.

Corinne: We are also grateful for our brilliant team. Furthermore, I hope that our café del mundo will remain a great meeting place.

Tips from the expert

Corinne: For a really good coffee, I clearly recommend the traditional portafilter machine.

Mirjam: A good milk froth is the be-all and end-all. A good barista needs that certain something and a lot of patience to make a tasty coffee.
