At the New Amsterdam Cafe, coffee is our passion. We pride ourselves in brewing some of the best coffee that Vancouver has to offer. From our drip coffee to our espresso blends- we only buy from top quality distributers. Time and time again, we have customers telling us how much they enjoy our coffee in all of it’s smooth, robust perfection. We even have people come from out of town and let us know how much they were looking forward to a fresh hot cup inside the New Amsterdam Cafe as part of their NAC experience!
Both of our drip and espresso coffee beans are from the Canterbury Coffee Company. Canterbury Coffee is a sustainable coffee brand that not only supports green initiatives in their office and business practices, but they also donate more than $100,000 annually to local charities like the BC Children’s Hospital. Their coffee is also Fairtrade Canada approved, Tco certified organic, Halal approved, Ou Kosher, and BC Kosher! Canterbury Coffee is a company that aligns with our own standards of fair and ethical trade here at the New Amsterdam Cafe, which is why we’re happy to purchase and serve their brand!
Our Espresso variety of coffee is the delicious Canterbury Signature Espresso San Marco variety. It originates from Asia, Central America, and South America, and is a medium-dark blend with a bold and lingering aftertaste. Over 30 years of roasting experience goes into each and every cup of Canterbury Signature, which begins with premium Arabica beans. We make sure that every employee at the New Amsterdam Cafe knows exactly how much Espresso to use, and how to make the perfect cup each time we make your Lattes, Frappes, and Cappuccinos!
For drip coffee, we chose to go with the reSIProcate Full City blend. ReSIProcate is not only delicious, but it’s also made with fair trade coffee beans that are also organic and pesticide free! Every cup of reSIProcate sold goes toward local charities and improving the lives of many Canadians. Being good for the environment and drinking coffee that is socially responsible is only half the enjoyment of the Full City roast. Perhaps what makes this coffee so perfect is the mixture of sweet chocolate and cashews, creating a well balanced and smooth blend. We make fresh pots throughout the day so you’re sure to get the ultimate cup every time you order.
If you haven’t had the chance to try our coffee yet, we highly recommend it! You can feel good that your lattes, cappuccinos, drip coffee, and cold blended coffee beverages are not only making your taste buds happy, but also giving back to the local and Global community. We are happy to serve you the best tasting (and feeling!) coffee in Vancouver.
