Who would think that tiny charming coffee house Kurts Coffee in Riga is actually named after its owner – a 6-year-old boy? He doesn’t talk or walk because of his disability but already has his own coffee place. All the income goes towards his rehabilitation, daily needs, fun activities and future savings. Everybody has special needs, and everybody needs special coffee.
Kurts Coffee serves locally roasted coffee beans from Kalve coffee, creating an exceptional coffee experience. Kalve coffee is a recently established roastery in Latvia, focusing on quality, development and design– not so easy to find around here yet.
The family-owned coffee house is about to expand its offering with unusually colored crepes bursting with fruity or cheesy fillings, but for now you can enjoy the coffee or splendid Kurts cacao and support a family that’s not giving up, neither on fully experiencing life, nor on great coffee.
If you pass by on Mondays, you can meet Kurts himself. This is the only business made for a purpose like this in the whole of Latvia. The response and approval from society truly bonds together people who have disabilities and the positive energy can be felt by the smiles and warmth surrounding this spot.
