Lot Sixty One Coffee Roasters Life measured with coffee spoons

Intimately-sized though this coffee joint may be, they’re big on beans and sure as hell know how to tease the very best out of them. The hulking, 12 kilo Probat roaster — accessible via a small staircase leading down from the main white, lacquered tile and grained woodblock furnished space — provides proof of that, before a sip of coffee’s even passed your lips. When the time for tasting does come, though, you’ll be left in no doubt that Lot Sixty One is the real deal. Globally sourced beans are served up (post roast) in inventive blends that guarantee a compelling breadth of flavor, whatever caffeinated concoction you choose.

Harvest and Company Vintage reimagined featured

Part vintage furniture store, part gallery and part project hub, Harvest and Company has come to market in a big way in Amsterdam’s Oud West. Throwing accepted notions of interior goods shops out of a very high window (so that you wouldn’t be able to recognise them even if they survived the fall), they went back to the drawing board to create a bold new breed of design boutique.

The white-walled and polished-concrete floored space (dotted here and there with potted plants and cacti) plays home to a curated collection of wall decorations, custom-made tables, and industrial lights and chairs—all more than worthy additions to even the slickest of pads.

Canal House Upgrade your slumber featured

Chic doesn’t even begin to cover what this boutique stopover is all about. With its gothic-luxe interior and sumptuous spaces, it’s no wonder awards have been raining down on the hotel. Don’t be fooled by the room grading system, the rather underwhelming titled “good room” is a treasure trove of velveteen bedding and handpicked artworks. While the “best room” offers a postcard-picture canal view and a freestanding bath that could only be more decadent if it were filled with Dom Pérignon. The real clincher, however, is the oasis of green outback; a rare treat in central Amsterdam and one of the largest in the city to boot.
