I can confirm that your category pages are fast, but your single article pages are very slow.

I'd recommend to use Google Chrome's Lighthouse function to analyze the site and optimize it. You can find it in Google Chrome via "Inspect" and then "Audits" (See )

The single article page loads 145 resources: images, javascript, css.
Loading such an amount of resources decreases the performance enormously.
Reducing the amount of resources and add them to the cache will increase your site's performance.
