A truly good cup of coffee
At Gys, we serve many cups of coffee per day. Not only for our guests, but our colleagues are also big coffee lovers! Do you know what kind of coffee we serve? We are sure you won't taste the coffee at Gys anywhere else in Utrecht or the surrounding area. Our organic coffee is roasted especially for us. It is a unique coffee blend, with a remarkable story! And we are proud of it! Our Gys coffee is a blend of 50% Colombian and 50% Guatemalan beans.
Colombian Coffee Beans (50%)
The Colombian coffee beans come from the Asociación de Mujeres Cafetera Plan Mil, an organization that advocates for women in the coffee industry. Many of these women are single mothers who came to the Serranía del Perijá sub-region of Colombia as refugees. Thanks to the association and its partners, these women are now specialized coffee farmers who use advanced agricultural and processing methods to produce this excellent fully washed coffee.
Coffeebeans from Guatemala (50%)
The Guatemalan coffee beans in the blend come from the Asociación Civil Comercializadora Maya Alternativa (COMAL), an organization known for its dedication to gender equality in coffee production. Nearly half of COMAL's members are women, and the cooperative has established various programs to support female producers. This fully washed, Fairtrade, and organic coffee comes from the programs set up by COMAL and offers a delightful flavour with notes of chocolate, berries, and citrus.
You can taste this unique coffee blend at our locations on Voorstraat and Amsterdamsestraatweg in Utrecht, served just the way you like it. Do you prefer a flat white with oat milk, a latte macchiato with almond-coconut milk, or is your go-to coffee a cortado with cow's milk? You have choices at Gys! And what is a delicious cup of coffee without something tasty to eat with it? Every gluten-free and vegan cake tastes even better with a cup of coffee!
Not only do you enjoy a truly delicious coffee blend with us, but you also support coffee farmers who are working towards a better future for themselves and their community. A cup of coffee with a good story is what you will enjoy with us!
