About Back to Black
Back to Black is an Amsterdam based company existing out of a coffee roastery, two coffee bars, a little bakery and an SCA training academy.
We started roasting our own coffee in 2015 out of passion for craftsmanship. We are constantly looking for exceptional coffees with outspoken characteristics to thereafter
roast this coffee in the best possible way. We select our green bean importers carefully. Our importers stimulate farmers in different ways to farm more sustainable, they are
doing this by paying higher prices for better-produced coffee or to advice about harvesting, processing and storing the coffee at location. We find it very important to make every step in the process from cherry till cup of coffee as transparent as possible. This way the client can get all the information they need about the coffee; we think this
is an important step towards more sustainable coffee.
Pies from our bakery
We choose all products we use for baking carefully. We bake all pies in our own bakery, which is why we know exactly what goes into our pies and how over the years we perfected our own secret recipes
In our business we base our choices on sustainability. This includes everything, from biological detergent to a green energy supplier. For us it’s important to base the choices you make not only on yourself, but also on the world and the
people around you.
Back to Black is founded by Noortje Vlutters and Inge Bulthuis. “We’ve known each other since we were 12 and we founded Back to Black in 2014. We hope to serve a lot more great coffees and pies in the years to come to our customers and wholesale clients”.
Thank you for being addicted!
