I’m a big fan of coffee dates, as you may have noticed, and Amsterdam is home to numerous places to have a decent cup of coffee. My favorite is Two For Joy Coffee Roasters (Frederiksplein 29 & Haarlemmerdijk 182; see previous post). But Screaming Beans (Hartenstraat 12), located in the Nine Streets in the Jordaan, is another coffee house in Amsterdam that I’ve been meaning to try. And last week I finally had that opportunity.
Screaming Beans is a unique concept of coffee, sandwiches and a Coffee Academy. Most of their products are biological, sustainable and of the highest quality possible. Expect coffees served from Bocca Coffee and sandwiches made with bread from the delicious bakery BROOD.
What makes this coffee house unique is the combination of a Barista Academy that not only offers different SCAE (Specialty Coffee Association of Europe) training sessions and examinations and Latte Art courses for professionals, but workshops for the ‘home barista!’ See the full agenda here. Screaming Beans (Hartenstraat 12) is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm, Saturday from 8.30am to 5pm and Sunday from 10am to 5pm. Click for more Amsterdam Insights, published every Wednesday.
