About us

A better coffee experience starts with quality beans and a local roaster.

An old-timer Citroen Hy food truck, a beautiful monument in the heart of Pietermaai, an inhouse coffee roastery and a passion for coffee. Together it’s Van Gogh Specialty Coffee & City Roastery. A restaurant and drive-thru for the best coffees and pastries, but also for your breakfast, brunch and lunch. 

At Van Gogh Specialty Coffees, you can enjoy delicious, honest and highest quality coffee. All roasted in the inhouse roastery. Fresh and only the highest quality. Van Gogh offers besides coffees like Espresso, cappuccino, Latte and iced coffee, also various surprising flavors of (ice) tea, chocolate milk, Salads, Soups, delicious pastries and ice cream sherbets.

How can you enjoy all these delicious food and drinks?

Who makes that delicious specialty coffee? 

That’s Barista and SCA-certified coffee roaster Fabian. He grew up in the coffee culture of Colombia and has a nose for the best and sweetest coffee beans. He judges coffee and the beans, like a wine connoisseur judges his grapes and wines. A passion and expertise!

What is Specialty coffee??

Specialty Coffee is defined as any coffee that scores above 80 points on a 100 point scale. Typically, speciality coffee is grown at high altitudes, with much care and attention from the farmer. From there, it is sold at a premium to coffee traders, or direct to roasters. The SCA* defines specialty coffee in its green stage as coffee that is free of primary defects, has no quakers, is properly sized and dried, presents in the cup free of faults and taints and has distinctive attributes. In practical terms this means that the coffee must be able to pass aspect grading and cupping tests. 

Fabian has the official SCA-certificates to do these grading and cupping tests.
