Okay so when I said I want to post more about hotspots in Amsterdam and get away fromÂ campus more often I did not think this through. It is January, the temperatures so low your fingers freezeÂ and stick to the handles of your bike (yes, despite mittens) and the wind so strong as if it is trying to keep you from being able to cycle anywhere towards West. Luckily a friend convinced me to spend my 20 minute break during class to run across campus and try out the coffee in a place called The Coffee Virus, located in a village made entirely out of containers (this is the future, I swear!): the Amsterdam StartUp Village.
I was so happy to have discovered that place with its huge windows and cosy atmosphere, it smells like coffee and wood and has aÂ view across a massive field which almost let’s you forget you are on campus.
The coffee is good, a bit pricey but worth every cent (especially whenÂ you usually get yourÂ 20-minute-break coffee at the supermarket across the street…) and the cakes and pastries looked to good to not come back soon and try them all.
Although it is more of a working space atmosphere (which I for sure will make use of this upcoming semester) it’s still so nice to have new place to meet for a coffee break on campus.
