An old friend came back to see us today; Josef Ruona was our very first graphic design intern in our creative studio back in 2012.

Three years later he came back to give us a workshop!

We’re a bit obsessed with creating interesting textures for our graphic work using physical materials rather than doing it on the computer. Since he was with us, Josef has become somewhat of a master at this so he kindly agreed to share some of his hard-earned secrets with us.

It’s so easy to fall into patterns; doing things the same way over and over again and it requires a great amount of focus and concentration to avoid repeating old routines. Things can go from fresh to dull in a very short time. So let new people in, be open to learning, don’t be afraid to start again from the beginning, look for teachers around you, someone or something that can help you see with fresh eyes again. This is what Josef did for us today.

After he left us, Josef continued at Design school in Stockholm. Now in his final year, he’s recently got a job at a great agency in the city. A glittering future beckons him for sure.

Thank you and see you again next year for the next one!

If you’ve been to our bar lately, you will have noticed some changes. We got rid of the big brands, and replaced them with products which come from independent family-run businesses. We also came up with some new cocktails using these products. 

On the warmer days, the Rhubarb Thyme is a favourite. The main ingredient is Mondino Amaro, an aperitif made in Bavaria from an Italian recipe. Mondino is made from Arancia Amara – a bitter orange, rhubarb and yellow gentian, a medicinal plant that gives Mondino it’s subtle herbal taste. 

Using fresh thyme which is grown in the herb boxes in the courtyard, our Rhubarb Thyme cocktail picks up on those herbal notes. The addition of fresh muddled rhubarb, Adler gin and lime, make it very refreshing.

After lunch service on Monday afternoon, eight Michelbergers set off on the journey to Jüterbog, a small village around 70km south of Berlin. Our destination was Bobalis, an organic buffalo farm from where we source cheese and meat products which are served in our restaurant. 

We piled into the Fountain of Youth delivery van at the hotel, and then an hour later emerged in a lovely little corner of Brandenburg to be greeted by Elke, an old friend of Stefanie’s.

Elke and her husband have been running the buffalo farm since 1998. They started out with 30 cows and two bulls, and now have 200 buffalo. At any one time, they have 60 milking cows, producing 350 litres of milk a day. 150 of that goes into the cheese and milk products made at the on-site dairy, and the remaining 200 litres goes to feed the calves on the farm. 

All the animals that we saw – from the five day old calves, to the fully grown (700kg!) milking cows, had a certain presence about them. Such strong and intelligent beings, who really seemed to engage with us. And they are happy animals! That much was clear. 

The farm itself is quite picture perfect. The original buildings date back to 1885, and interestingly, it was once owned and ran by Elke’s husband’s great, great, great grandfather! For a time the property was owned by another family, but Elke and her husband purchased the farm in 1989 and turned it into what it is today. 

After Alan got some kisses from a very affectionate little buffalo, Elke invited us inside to sample some of the buratta and bresaola produced by the farm. Delicious, of course. She sent us on our way with a litre of buffalo milk, which we passed around the van on the journey back to Berlin.

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that the food on your plate didn’t just come from the supermarket shelf or the back of the delivery van. We’re fortunate enough to have access to produce that comes from a farm like Bobalis – a well-kept and pleasant place with happy and healthy animals.
