Free cake for all visitors to Rotterdam’s new coffee hotspot
A new branch of de koffiesalon – written in small letters – opens this morning at the World Trade Center Rotterdam. In Rotterdam’s business lounge, coffee lovers can now enjoy a cup of pure artisanal Buscaglione Espresso coffee, de koffiesalon’s partner. To celebrate the opening, the new coffee hotspot will welcome its visitors with a slice of cake with their cup of coffee. de koffiesalon is located in the partially renovated entrance hall, immediately next to the main entrance adjacent to the new Business Center which will open its business rooms and flexible working spaces later this year.

Diederik Habbema, owner of de koffiesalon says that “We aim to serve the best coffee in the Netherlands every day. It was a huge compliment when an international jury chose us as the best coffee maker of the Netherlands. The icing on the cake is that we are now opening a new branch in this wonderful building in the heart of Rotterdam, along with our six branches in Amsterdam.”
Managing Director, Eveline Steenbergen is delighted: “Now that de koffiesalon is open, we are another step closer to achieving WTC Rotterdam’s master plan. Visitors are not only here for work, but also to meet up and relax with a good cup of coffee. That creates a dynamic and relaxed atmosphere that the building, with its history and potential, more than deserves.”
