In an old butcher’s shop in Antwerp South, you can vrom now for a delicious pure cup of coffee. Dave Haesen and Paolo Guffens, two baristas that their tracks deserve in coffee shops worldwide, opened their first case. The owners thought that the Antwerp koffiescene was ready for something new and they added the action to the word. In different corners of the world, did they experience as a barista. Of Melbourne, London and Vancouver in the Antwerp Caffènation.

For a pure cup of comfort, you need to be close to the production process. They start at the green bean, they have to figure out. The burning of the beans is done by the specialized maker of Caffènation, where Butchers Coffee also the Caffènation private label purchases. In the future plans they have their own Butchers Blend on the market. Hungry? You can also nibble on a fresh toast, enjoy a piece of carrot cake or go for the healthy superfood balls.

This new bar on the Mechelseplein calls taste from to the king. The owners, Wolfram and Oskar Ghesquière, like a simple philosophy, namely that good taste is within everyone’s reach. ‘He stands for the good life. Good company, good music, good food, good drinks, good health, a little away from everything, ….’

The brothers went in search for products from warm regions, with a story: Italian cocktails, Spanish aged beef, French bread and Mediterranean music. Furthermore, they focus on socialising in their new bar. Both Oskar as Wolfram have experience in the hospitality industry and bring people together. That knowledge put them in their own bar, where atmosphere and taste central. In short, a bar where you can go on the indian summer or to go out and enjoy the coziness of the burgeoning autumn.
