This shop used to be located near my university. So every time me and my friends skipped class, you could find us here. I can honestly say, this is where my coffee addiction started.
I lost track when I found a house in another part of the city and started working. Until they moved to a new venue that was right on my way to work. Happy me!
Rob, the owner, started Caffènation with 30 different coffee combo’s, tea, hot chocolate, and egg salad sandwiches. He has always focused on quality and origin, and turned that up a notch when he started roasting his own beans and making his own blends. He got the attention of other coffee bars and now delivers his coffee to over 50 other venues in Antwerp, Ghent, Brussels and in The Netherlands.
They focus mostly on the ‘real’ coffees, but, as you can see on the picture, when ‘Snickers crunch covered whipped cream mountain’ is your thing, you still have a great pick. My favorite? The ‘Latté the Pooh’: Coffee, hot foamy milk and honey.
Or take a ‘coffee subscription’ via the website. You will get a different roast in your mailbox every week with instructions on how the make the perfect coffee with those beans.
Last but not least, they offer coffee workshops. They love to share their knowledge and will teach you everything from bean to cup. In the more advanced classes they will teach you some latte art and how to use an aeropress.
Definitely worth a visit!
