I love coffee! And what I really like is that a lot of people in Amsterdam share my appreciation for this drink. Rum Baba is a friendly, local spot for your daily fix of home-roasted coffee in Amsterdam-Oost. Any cravings for delicious American-style cakes and bakes can be satisfied at their cafe or bakery, but you can also just drop by at their cafe for breakfast or lunch.
What I found very original was that when you are seated you get your own bill in the form of a miniature animal statue. From then on everything you order is based on that toy. Furthermore, a couple of workshops are organized, such as latte art, filter coffee, or espresso making. Sounds fun! Coffee beans are also sold for home use and according to the information on their website they deliver to offices and other restaurants with the necessary equipment and information/training by skilled baristas. They’re serious about coffee!
Extra tip: this is also a great workspace to sit with your laptop while enjoying some energy fuel.
