We'll serve you a cup Full of ideas
Top Coffee Crafted by Top Baristi
Were does coffee come from? And what is “good” coffee?
Do you know this?
Do you know this, or you THINK you know this?
For the THIRD time CrafTEDxCoffee will be joining the TEDx Amsterdam conference to share a taste of Speciality Coffee.
While we serve you a great cupper, we also tell what great coffee is all about.
Not just the taste of your coffee, but more importantly, we tell you about the source of it.
Where does it come from? How is it produced? And how is good quality sustained and maintained?
What are the influences of speciality coffee on the local producers and families?
So, enjoy your cup of fresh coffee today! It has been a lot of work to get it there.
These days more and more great coffees are being produced. Closer relationships between producers at origin and roasters result in better agreements, payments, and even investments at origin, providing strong relationships and of course higher quality coffee which can be sustained and maintained.
Of so many coffees to choose from we have picked a great selection of coffees for this day, just to get you started. But again, there are many more out there.

Preparation Method: Pour over During the TEDx event we will have 3 serving stations, each having 4 hario drippers and 4 baristi. All filter coffees will be crafted by the classic “pour over” method. It takes a bit longer to prepare your coffee, but it will be worth it.
Pre-wet/warm the filter,
add fresh coffee (about 20grms),
pre-infuse the coffeebed, wait 20sec,
slowly add water (about 320grms).
Serve out two great cups of coffee.
The coffee journey ends here.
While you enjoy your fresh coffee, have a look at this video.
It shows you where the journey of your coffee has started. How many hands did it already pass before you finally enjoy it?
Have a look and see there is put a lot of hard work into the cup of coffee in front of you.
CrafTEDxCoffee is a group of coffee professionals who are aiming to brew a thoughtful cup of coffee.
Not only are they striving for a well crafted coffee, they also do this with heaps of consideration for all the hands that a bean passes through from plantation to cup.
This involves for instance knowing where the bean grew, climate and terroir which all have a huge influence on the final taste. How the farmer picks and processes its harvest, al so a big factor in taste. How it is shipped and last but not least how it is roasted.
Behind the crew of CrafTEDxCoffee are 8 ambitious roasters and a team of passioned baristi, your coffee-makers, who will deliver exceptional coffee’s with a story.
This story is about trace-ability and sustainability. They all believe that consideration about what is in your cup, will matter to a lot of people who put a lot of effort in producing your coffee.
In 2009 TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
Our event is called TEDxAmsterdam, where x=independently organized TED event. At ourTEDxAmsterdam event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will be combined to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Our team consists of over 100 volunteers who all support TEDs motto “ideas worth spreading”.
TEDxAmsterdam is also heavily involved in other TEDx-events. In 2010 we organized a TEDGlobal viewing party, a TEDxChange Dinner, a TEDxYouth Event and a TEDxWomen Event at Sotheby’s.
CraftedCoffee is completely independent from the TEDx organisation. It has been our own initiative to join the TEDx Amsterdam conference. We strongly believe in “ideas worth spreading” such as good quality coffee.
