Let's take a closer look at some of the noteworthy coffee shops in Luxembourg!

We sipped, we slurped, we over-caffeinated... That's how far we'll go for our readers to have a beautiful selection of specialty coffees in Luxembourg!

After tasting some of the best coffees in the Grand Duchy, our jittery hands couldn't even hold a pen steady...ah, the joys of journalism!

Now we're here to share with you the hidden beans of Luxembourg where you can get your cup of Java!



An establishment that holds a significant place in Luxembourg's coffee history is Café Knopes. The story of Café Knopes dates back to 1936 when Albert Knopes, a trained teacher, decided to open a colonial grocery store that soon became specialized in coffee. With 80 years of experience and four generations carrying on the legacy, the passion for coffee remains as strong as their espresso!

Continuing the tradition of artisanal coffee roasting, Knopes takes pride in their family's expertise. Embracing seasonality, the shop varies its coffee range based on the seasons and harvests, ensuring customers have the opportunity to discover freshly picked crops and explore the diverse flavors produced worldwide.

Sustainability holds immense importance for Knopes as they strive towards a better future. Most coffee production is subject to stock market pricing, but the coffees they select are negotiated directly with the farmers based on the harvest's quality. This approach not only motivates the farmers but also enables them to provide social benefits to their employees and improve their plantations in harmony with nature.

Do For Love Coffee

Do for Love stands out because they use top-notch equipment, including the "see-through" Aremde coffee machine imported from Australia. The innovative design enables customers to witness the way coffee streams into the cup, without having to lean or peek around the machine.

To complement their coffee offerings, Do for Love serves delicious treats such as carrot cake, crumble berry bars, gluten free cookies and much more!
