10 Best Coffee Bars In Amsterdam

It’s time for another Tuesday Ten! In this item we discuss 10 hotspots which are best for a specific subject. This time STORY154 gives you 10 favorite spots to drink specialty coffee. Earlier we showed you the best spots to eat healthy, to drink gintonics, the best terraces and the best restaurants in Amsterdam Noord.

Headfirst Coffee Roasters started like the name presumes. They wanted to start roasting coffee and just went head first. And how! Enjoy a lovely Kenyan coffee bright with notes of red currant at the Westerstraat. Or a coffee from El Salvador.

Two for Joy offers you a variety of coffees: an Italian espresso, a true Amsterdam coffee or a full and very well rounded cup with ripe plum and blackberry tones from Bogotá. You can also decide to take a Chemex back home!

Marie-Stella-Maris gives you next to a beautiful surrounding and clear water in a well designed bottle, also a helluva cup of coffee. Don’t get seduced by all the well scented beauty products of this Amsterdam brand.

Caffé Il Momento is a hidden gem along the canals of Amsterdam! With a robust interior, knowledge of coffee and specialty coffee roasted at the next coffee bar. A great hangout!

De Espressofabriek is the ideal spot to get some work done while sipping on a nice robust cup of coffee (at the Westergasfabriek). Don’t get fooled by the name: you can also have lunch here or a drink in the afternoon sun.

Lot Sixty One Coffee Roasters is also known as Bounce Space or De Fietskantine. The barista explains you what coffee is best for you at that certain time of day. Next to specialty coffee, you can get your hair cut or your bike fixed.

Vinnies Deli is actually more of a breakfast and lunch spot. Definitely go by to enjoy some true barista qualities, the nicest atmosphere, friendly people and grab a lunch while you are at it..

Filter Amsterdam is an asset for this area of Amsterdam! It is not situated in the most cosy street of Amsterdam (actually the filtiest), but FILTER is the sunshine in this street with marvelous coffee and sweets.

Koko Coffee & Design’s name says it all: coffee and design. Not an ordinary combination, but hey we like it! The vintage interior, beautiful fashion and cool brick wall makes KOKO a great coffee bar to sip on a cappuccino.

Scandinavian Embassy is a piece of North Europe in Amsterdam because of their marvelous salmon, granny’s lemonade and the coffee which is an insult if you drink it with sugar. No sugar allowed.

Good days start with coffee.. And end with wine ;)

Nor Filter, Vinnies Deli and definitely nor Marie-Stella-Maris are specialty coffee bars. The fact that they use good quality beans to brew their coffees and that their baristas know how to draw a flower while pouring the milk doesn’t make them specialty coffee places.
