Small place with a big heart

Came here based on a recommendation and boy did it not disappoint. A tiny place with a neat, minimal design and although barely having enough seating for every guest who's wanting to stay you just don't go for a 'to go' coffee. No, cause you are charmed by the homey, sweet atmosphere and you are... read more

Wife and I from Sydney and love our coffee. This place is great. They do a mean flat white and have some good pastries. Only wish places like this in Amsterdam did meals!

I had been to their previous location in Oud West in a quirky vintage industrial furniture store and enjoyed the coffee and atmosphere there, so on this return trip I made sure to visit them again. It was extremely busy (in between xmas and NY, so holiday time), smaller than their previous location and the crowd was a bit too... More

These guys know what they're doing. I highly recommend buying your beans here, as well as stopping by for a coffee. As a barista it is heartwarming to see the coffee culture expand across the Netherlands.

Great coffee, one of the best coffees I have had in Amsterdam and around the corner from winkles where there is great apple pie.

Coffee in Amsterdam is undergoing a much welcomed naissance and Headfirst coffee roasters are one of the establishments leading the way. Equal to, if not the best coffee in town, which has never disappointed this coffee enthusiast. Keep up the good work guys! And very happy that they moved from Tweede Helmerstraat as it so much more convenient now!

Since moving to Westerstraat, Headfirst has really come into their own. The new set up and decor suits the style of these two coffee buffs. The coffee itself never fails to disappoint. They are true artists and you can taste their passion for coffee. Well worth a visit.

An establishment that roasts it's own coffee and as expected the quality was sublime. The interior is retro and vintage, like many other independent coffee shops of its kind. The coffee served was an Ethopian Shakiso Bean which was simply one of the best I have tasted an aeropress and V60 form (coffee geek). Just off the beaten track, 3... More
