A coffee place where girls, and recently boys also, make high level coffees using freshly roasted beans. Owned by two very friendly ladies obviously high coffee educated and with a really interesting taste of decoration. One of them took the third place at the Dutch Barista championship of 2017. Congratulations from mikemeacoffee👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻. The coffee is always well prepared and beautiful. Back to black has a very smiley and relaxed barista’s team. You can find out more about them here. Recently they started roasting their own blends with “believe me” tasteful results. Of course these blends plus back to black coffee cups and a specialty coffee subscription can be ordered also through the online shop.
Their slogan is “Thank you for being addicted”
Back to black gives the feeling of a “chalet” located in the hart of the city. It’s also very interesting that there is always art on the walls available to buy from different artist. After the renovation of the place inside, is more friendly and easy to stay longer. At the beginning the bar was straight after the entrance giving the feeling of a very small place without enough outside view and was not so pleasant to have a coffee. The girls realized it very fast and changed it moving the bar at the back corner giving plenty of space to coffee lovers to enjoy their coffee, looking at the beautiful canal view. Back to black is one of the few cafe’s in Amsterdam that without a kitchen can offer also a small range of bites like vegetarian pizza pieces and focaccia with vegetables alongside with the delicious pies and “healthy balls”.
Perfectly located on the corner of a 19th century home in front of a canal and in walking distance from Rijsk museum and museum square of Amsterdam.
