To the delight of Dutch coffee drinkers, in May STUMPTOWN COFFEE opened its first pop-up store on Amsterdam’s Albert Cuypstraat – the city’s famed market street. STUMPTOWN has been making quite a name for itself in the US for its dedication – bordering on obsession – with making the perfect cup of coffee. For them, this means exhaustive daily tastings and trips to their suppliers in Africa, Indonesia and beyond. Though for readers in the Amsterdam area, enjoying great coffee is not nearly as demanding. It’s just a shame their temporary store shuts again in two weeks’ time.
