Manhattan Coffee Roasters
During this week we are glad to have Manhattan Coffee Roasters from Rotterdam in The Netherlands on our shelves.
Manhattan Coffee Roasters is based in The Netherlands harbor city of Rotterdam. Run by long time coffee professionals and multiple barista championship winning barista’s Ben Morrow and Esther Maasdam.
The name Manhattan Coffee Roasters is inspired by the history of the harbor of Rotterdam. In particular the Holland America line that sailed from Rotterdam to New York. Rotterdam is situated next to the river Maas and being the only modern city with a gorgeous skyline in The Netherlands, it is locally named “Manhattan aan de Maas”.

-Manhattan Kinini -Espresso- Origin: Rwanda. The espresso tastes like raspberry, red fruit and baked orange.
