“We are Curators Coffee. And if our reason for existence would be anything less than curating the best coffee, equipment, drinks and food, we would have chosen another name. Simple.”

It is the coffee shop’s quest to curate rare, unique and attractive coffees from roasters around the world. Giving you a global coffee hit, it’s an ideal spot to take the coffee-lover in your life.
Enjoy a conversation over a food menu that celebrates the best, seasonal produce from local suppliers.
