    Lovely place to stop for a cup of coffee. Nice and cozy environment, you can do some work, read or have a talk while you're coffee is made by a sweet barista. Nice latte art though.

    Super cozy, lovely people and amazing (!) coffee and tea. They also have some croissants and cookies if you're looking for something to eat. Definitely going there again!

    If you are lucky, you will find freshly baked cookies! Delicious, especially the white chocolate and cranberries ones! Beg, steal, bribe but whatever you do, try one!

    Nerdiest third wave coffee place in Amsterdam. Roasting small batches on a 1 kg Giesen, served in Chemex, V60, AeroPress, Clever Drip and a La Marzocco espresso machine. Also, apple pie. Loved it!

    Tiny place with living room feel, including basset hound run by a young couple. What they lack in pastries, they make up in passion and knowledge about coffee and tea. Try the filter coffee selection!

    Brilliant place for coffee, lovely people that set it up and work there. Next to being able to try amazing coffee and tea tastes, I strongly recommend their freshly baked cinnamon buns

    Great coffee. Selected books and magazines about coffee (and one named "Stuff Dutch People Like" - very instructive), board games and a guitar are also at your disposal. There are three cactuses

    Small and cozy coffee shop great to relax and enjoy a cup or two. You get your choice from fresh brews for espresso drinks.

    Very tasty coffee. They don't serve decaf because it's not healthy (at least that's what the nice woman at the counter said). They have good tea, too, and I have seen some cake & croissants.

    These folks know their bean to the micro bit! Always fresh roast and great baristas make any latte taste perfect. Cozy place a few side streets from Leidseplein.

    Excellent coffee served by passionate people (and a Basset hound). What more could you ask for? Great filter choices, all freshly roasted on the premises.

    I've rarely seen a barista as excited as the proprietor here was when I asked for a filter coffee. He brought over eight different bags for us to select from, and brewed our selections very well.

    Beans are roasted on site. Get the V60 pour over coffee. It's brewed perfectly

    This flat white (double ristretto in a cappuccino cup with milk and a touch of foam) was perfect.  Roasts on-site.  Also does pour over.

    Great selection - try the 'ongewassen Mexican'. Nice hosts with lazy dog 'jefke' and good taste in music.

    Coffee is good, but if you want to taste really really good coffee, check out Bocca, which is 150 m away.

    They care about their coffee here. If you order an Aeropress or filter, they'll have you smell the roasts and pick your favorite.
