Gotta love this place because it is the bomb. They are open seven days a week by the way, including Tues and Wednesdays. DJ sets, album releases with in store concerts and other small events mostly during weekends. White Label coffee roasters from Amsterdam are the suppliers of the beans for that liquid black gold. Every other month a different guest roast. Filter coffee galore.
If you want to experience an extension of your lounge room, but with better music and most probably better coffee, you should get yourself to Black Gold. The owner, Siebrand is an actual Amsterdammer, which is super entertaining (ask him about Rotterdam!) and also informative for tips about where to go, what to do and of course, music. His handpicked vinyl collection is quite a catch, and if you're lucky, he'll be spinning his favourites while you're enjoying your aeropress, v60, espresso, silky-milk-based caffeine hit, or locally-sourced tea. They also have non-caffeine options, like locally-brewed Kombucha, sodas, organic fruit juice and herbal tea. Not the place for your sit-down-breakfast kind of food, but they do have a range of home-baked options, like vegan carrot cake, cinnamon snails, cookies, croissants and what we think is the best banana bread in Amsterdam (baked by an Australian!) A great place to start your day, or to perk you up from your 3:30pm melt-down, this aurally- and visually-pleasing cafe is lucky it's *just* outside of the tourist area, otherwise it might not have been this good. Highly recommend Black Gold for specialty coffee, specialty tunes and babetown staff working there.
My favourite coffee bar in Amsterdam. Beans from White Label, a small and relatively young Amsterdam roastery. Every few months they have beans from a guest roaster, like April from Copenhagen or The Barn from Berlin. They sell and play vinyl records too. Friendly and passionate owner, knows a lot about music and coffee. Situated near the central station, but in a quiet neighbourhood, just outside the touristy area. Good atmosphere, nice art on the walls, interesting homemade special drinks like cold brew, kombucha, ice-cream latte, cascara soda, ginger beer etc. Perfect to spend some time enjoying great coffee and great music.
