The people in the Netherlands are heavy coffee drinkers as one can see in the main cities where more and coffee bars are opening these days. After Starbucks entered the Dutch market, the way mainly paved by the Dutch Coffee Company and large groups of private labels, another trend can be spotted these days in which coffee is used as a teaser.
One of my favourites in this field is Coffee Concepts. This place is set up as a regular coffee bar with juices, smoothies, wraps, cakes and free wifi of course. I meet my friends here before I go to an appointment, work on my computer or hang out with a friend on a great couch and drink coffee, have a fresh juice or my favourite spicy chicken wrap for lunch!
But it is also a gallery and the office of a PR & Communication start-up at the same time. So Coffee Concepts takes the traditional coffee bar to a new level. And with success, another one will be opening soon in the centre.
Two sisters Bouland and a friend started this store where each individual has its own speciality. They started from scratch by just doing it. The art on display may change after four months. The atmosphere is open and very relaxed. In the morning there are the desperate housewives coming back from their run in the park and people having a coffee before they go to work. Sitting outside in the sun makes you stay here longer…
