Coffee spots: Amsterdam


Justin Hawthorne



We awoke to a snowing Amsterdam and took a walk to Bocca Coffee Roasters to warm up.


Walking the streets of Amsterdam during a freezing spell means one thing – coffee! Back in January 2017 my brother and I were in Amsterdam when the snow started falling, and we dashed straight for Bocca – our second favourite spot in the vibrant city.

Bocca Coffee Roasters is a space welcoming a vast mix of personalities and purposes: from a quick cup on the go to lounging on their sofas or what we were up to: work. The boardroom table at the hidden corner formed the ideal work space for us as we plugged in, connected, sipped great coffee and glanced up briefly to scan the happenings of the snowy street outside.

Screaming Beans Coffee Roasters was well situated on our walk home one morning and we popped in to warm up and enjoy their coffee. A spacious, efficient and comfy spot did the job with a cup of black gold. It’s worth a visit to any stay in the city that lasts more than a day for sure.

Lot Sixty One, Amsterdam

Lot Sixty One – finest coffee in Amsterdam.

Amsterdams finest spot has to go to Lot Sixty One Coffee Roasters. This spot has it all if you seriously love quality coffee and a bustling place to enjoy it! Crammed into the working roastery, this coffee spot has just enough bar space to squash plenty caffeine lovers into the aroma filled corner cafe. They’ve got benches outside too, for the smokers with seriously thick winter skin! Don’t leave without grabbing a bag of the good stuff on the way out. If only one single coffee is all you can squeeze into your visit: Lot Sixty One.
