Rum Baba Bakery and Roastery
Pretoriusstraat 15I, 1092 EW Amsterdam, Netherlands
This ringleader in micro-roasting, which Rum Baba has been doing since 2015, is seeing its brand ripple round the country. The coffee is served at other flavour-forward establishments, but the beans – or more precisely, their distinct bags with whimsical geometrical patterns – are also showing up in less expected outlets, for example, alongside gourmet comestibles sold in the kitchen and tableware section of spiffy Dutch department store de Bijenkorf.
A selection of single-origin espressos and filter coffees are available to drink at the roastery – saddle up on one of the high chairs – or by a bag for your home bar. Still more excitement, the kitchen incubates Rum Baba’s famous baked goods, sold to individuals needing sweets in quantity as well as B2B. The red velvet cake and the white chocolate cheesecake are steady crowd pleasers; and - warning - the liquor-saturated pastry, from which the café is named, tends to sell out fast.
