I am a coffee snob and I am very picky when it comes to me drinking coffee. Coffee is important and I think that if you are going to be consume it, at least consume good coffee! I am starting a new series where I highlight some good coffee spots and why I like them. This isn’t in any particular order, rather just my thoughts on the various places as they come up.
Coffee Company was first opened in 1996, after the founder fell in love with it in New York as well as London. The first shop was opened in Amsterdam and now there are cafes all around The Netherlands.
My favourite one and the only one I ever go to is the Coffee Company on Eendrachtsplein in Rotterdam. It’s warm; welcoming and the staff there are really amazing. Most of the time they have a huge smile on their face and their passion really seeps through when they are working.
It was my first experience when it came to good cafes in Holland so it holds a special place in my heart. I love working on my laptop there as they have amazing WiFi but it’s also amazing to really just sit with your friends on one of the couches and have a fat chat over coffee.
They are rather expensive and offer no loyalty programs which kind of suck but I do like them that much that I continue going there. I do recommend them. Their coffee is good, it is more commercial but their quality doesn’t make it seem like it is excessively massed produced which is nice.
