Our story

A visual story of our 2 years!

It all started in NYC. The idea. And it manifested because we followed the signs.

The love for coffee and that what we do every day again keeps us going. At which ‘chapter’ did you came to know Hummingbird Amsterdam? The first month? The first year? Or just lately? Let us guide you through the beautiful, the joyful and sometimes tough cookies in life that we would love to share with you.

Because You Can’t Travel The World, We Bring The World To You.

We celebrate our 2nd anniversary. Grateful that we still are able to keep on going, despite the current pandemic, and that we can do what we love every day again. We curate the best of the best specialty coffee brands globally. Within two years we have had more than 30 different brands on the shelf and we’ll keep on sourcing the exquisite ones for you!

Sometimes you don’t need words, just show it. Here is a selection of our 2 years and we can’t wait to that moment that we are fully packed again. That cozyness around our beautiful Modbar. It will happen soon again.

Thank you for joining us on this journey!

With love, Kees & Agavni

SEY: “Drink beautiful coffee!”

“We are intensely interested in reimagining—both technologically and logistically—everything we have come to know about coffee. We are inspired by the boundlessness of possibility, and allow ourselves the freedom to work with whatever coffees we find inspiring, no matter how high the cost or how small the lot.”

Coffee Training

Calling all Barista’s!

We have a great opportunity for you! Because of our successful Work From Hummingbird-Days during our closing time in relation to corona it sparked our minds to offer our space in the evenings to barista’s who actively want to step into the training space but don’t have a location to provide training.

Now you do. It’s that easy. Because at the core of Hummingbird it is all about connectedness. And we would love to connect you and your trainees to the vibrance of Hummingbird and in this way supporting each other in time, space and opportunity.

Amsterdam, Our story

Donate or claim your workday at Hummingbird

Dear coffee friends,

Hummingbird Amsterdam Started December 2018 and we are still in a “starting/growing” phase. We really needed this lovely sunny start of March for our business to bloom. 

In light of the risk of COVID 19, we decided to close our shop to the public (check out our instagram IGTV page), out of our due diligence and responsibility to the community, and in understanding that even staying open, was not going to sustain our business. Currently the city center is a ghost town. Good thing because we need to fight the crisis together. Unfortunately as a specialty store that has a license to serve coffee, we belong to the ‘grey area’ of types of businesses that are not (yet) entitled to receive any financial support from our government.
