With the taste of coffee on their lips, Ukrainians tell about their hometowns against the backdrop of the war. The war has changed our lives. Our habits. Our preferences. Our perception of everyday things. With the beginning of the invasion, shops, marketplaces, hair salons and even pharmacies were closed everywhere. Yet, there necessarily was a small coffee shop that continued to work in every town or city as a link to normal life and survival. In our mini-stories, we will see each town and city through and its wartime daily routine through the eyes of local coffee fans. We will hear what saves, supports and inspires them. Life must go on despite the war after all.
