About Us

Our company:

Hi, we are The Coffeevine and we’re crazy about great coffee. We run Europe’s most exciting coffee box, featuring three delicious, freshly roasted coffees from three different roasters every month and we have the biggest catalogue of personally written café reviews of some of the best coffee bars all over the world.

We believe that every cup of coffee should be special, and we have made it our mission to get more amazing coffees into more cups. That is why we only work with the best independent coffee roasters, promote the finest independent cafés and write about stories that are relevant to our community.

For our customers this means being able to discover the whole spectrum of specialty coffee with a few clicks from the comfort of their own homes.

Our mission:

To help more people to discover, share and enjoy truly great coffee.
