The coffee of connoisseurs TEXT: EMMIE COLLINGE | PHOTOS: LOT SIXTY ONE / JELLE RIETVELD

After setting up a string of successful cafés across New York, Adam Craig and Paul Jenner headed to Amsterdam to open Lot Sixty One in 2013. They settled their specialty coffee roastery in the up-and-coming Kinkerstraat, which has now arguably come into its own within the city – largely thanks to their much-needed boost to Amsterdam’s coffee culture. With floor-to-ceiling windows, the corner café (and citywide coffee supplier) is sparsely decorated, with an equally pared-down menu: black, white and filter. But it gets better: delicately roasted and expertly prepared, Lot Sixty One’s coffees includes their bestselling espresso from a KVW Spirit machine (considered the Bentley within the barista world) alongside other single origin espressos and exclusive high-grade filter coffee, including some that cup over 90 plus out of 100 points. Then, of course, there is their hand-brewed single origin on their Hario V60 2_0_3C_Online_Advert_half_page_Layout 2 07/05/2015

drippers and the laboriously made Cold Brew Coffee which, Craig reveals, is rivalling the goto flat white in terms of popularity. All served within sight of their custom-made Probat L12 roaster, their bags of fresh wholebean coffee sell out rapidly. Yet much more than just a caffeine fix, Lot Sixty One has become a crutch within the community and the city, offering packed-out latte art workshops and team-building coffee masterclasses. Alongside a selection of baked goods, including the local’s must-have chocolate chunk cookies with sea salt, the intricacies of their coffee as well as their laid-back attitude are why Lot Sixty One have become the go-to roasters, supplying numerous boutique shops, restaurants and businesses. A young and dynamic team, they appear to have captured the vast potential for innovation within the world of coffee, creating their own brews and even craft beers. And it definitely helps that they create arguably the city’s finest cup of coffee. 09:34 Page 1
