About Cynthia

Cynthia is the founder of two beloved Berlin institutions – Barcomi’s Café & Coffee Roastersand Barcomi’s Deli. Born in Seattle, Washington, she received her diploma with distinction in philosophy and theater studies from Columbia University in New York City. In 1985 she moved to Berlin, Germany and began her career as a professional dancer. An avid cook and baker since childhood, Cynthia opened her first shop – a coffee roastery and bakery—in 1994 and has never looked back.  In 1997 she opened her second shop, a Deli in Berlin-Mitte, and in 2007 published her first baking book. In 2009 Cynthia launched her own bakeware line, which is made in England. Her five best-selling baking & cookbooks are inspired memories, dreams and bridging the cultural gap between classic American cuisine and her love for Germany. Cynthia lives with her husband and four children in Berlin.

In this far-reaching conversation, Cynthia and Diana will discuss her career path, important choices she’s made along the way, and advice she’d share with her past self and the audience.
