Back is Black, Weteringstraat 48 & Van Hallstraat 268

After the first lockdown they introduced the “Black Swap cup”. For only 5 euro you can buy a reusable sustainable cup and you will support the Circular coffee fund which invests in permaculture and reforestation at coffee farms. You can bring the swap cup with you every day and hand it in (dirty) to swap for a clean cup filled with your favourite coffee!
