AMSTERDAM COFFEE FESTIVAL 2024

02/04/2024

Sourced from various corners of the globe and delicately roasted in Transylvania, our selection of coffees embodies diversity and reflects a united community that values specialty coffee.

As a roastery, coffee festivals hold significant importance for us. We said yes to the biggest coffee party on earth  The Amsterdam Coffee Festival, and reconnecting with the specialty coffee community once more was exactly what we wished.

We had three days of unique origins, brew talks, industry workshops, and networking with the most professional roasteries.

The Roasters Village was bustling everyday. In the center of the festival atmosphere, epic conversations were flowing. The highlught of the second day was our take-over the La Marzocco bar; we had on the espresso grinder  Ethiopia Gargari Gutity – a truly exceptional and unique experience that encapsulates the rich tapestry of the Gargari Gutity washing station in the heart of the Yirgacheffe coffee region.

In the last day of the festival, we had the honor of hosting Roger from Finca El Placer farm at our coffee bar, where he shared his expertise about the coffee processing methods. It was a privilege to have a representative who understands every aspect of coffee.

Our mission at every festival is clear: to present nothing but our best selections. What sets us apart is our commitment to diversity – whether it’s in tasting notes, farm origins, terroir, or processing methods, we strive to offer a spectrum of flavors and experiences.
