The very first Coffeecompany opened its doors in 1996. The CC Leidsestraat 60 was born out of KoffieDick’s love for coffee and Rick’s love for the ‘big city ritual’ he encountered in New York and London.
With specially built espresso machines and extensive barista training in the coffee warehouse in Amsterdam, coffee making at Coffee Company is another craft. Since 1998, the CC Barista Cup has been held every year, where all baristas are already competing while struggling, tamping, foaming and latte-arts for the main prizes. Baristas can also be found regularly at the national level in the finals of the Barista Championship, NK Latte art and other competitions.
Continuous search for the tastiest coffees in the countries of origin, the further development of knowledge in the area of fires and the eventual setting, is what Coffeecompany is doing to help as many people as possible get better coffee.
On the edge of the Red Light District you will find CC Oude Doelen. A mishmash of tourists, students and regular customers make this coffee house a lively gathering point. While enjoying a delicious cup of coffee, you can read the paper, open your laptop or simply gawking at the people strolling on the street: never a dull moment.
