Coffyn Koffiebranderij & Proeverij Nijmegen Reviews
Absolutely fantastic Nov 20, 2010
Our Nijmegen meet-up started at Coffyn Koffiebranderij & Proeverij. Coffee roasting and coffee tasting is an initiative of Pluryn Group, which supports people with disabilities in areas like living, working, learning and leisure. Coffyn is part of this group.
Coffyn is situated in an old brick building and the atmosphere is nice and warm. On the ground floor they have a micro brewery and an adjacent pub. Upstairs is where you can enjoy high tea or participate in coffee tasting. We were there for the High Tea and that was no joke.
The High Tea consisted of 3 courses with four different types of tea. Ceylon tea was the first one and it came with homemade chocolates from their own chocolateri, The Chocolatebar.
Then it was Earl Grey tea and with it the traditional scones with wiped cream, cranberry jam and lemon curd as well as apple cinnamon cake, fruit nut bread, walnut squares, cheese and salmon puffs and small buns with tuna or cream cheese. Afte the Earl Grey tea they served the South African Rooibos tea. It was so much food, it just kept on coming and it all tasted heavenly. I believe we all ate way too much.
The High Tea ended with herbal tea and Petit Glacé, a little marzipan cake with rum, finished with cake icing.
Next to each plate was an informative menu. They also had information about the place and what they do and a good website, but everything is unfortunately in Dutch only.
Coffyn Koffiebranderij & Proeverij is a great place for meeting friends, having a lovely time and enjoying wonderful High Tea. At €19,50 it´s not the cheapest meal, but with everything you get it is absoultely worth the price. I can´t thank Devi (Devika1985) enough for taking us to this wonderful place for our meet-up.
