Try the Texelse Koffie

The island of Texel in the Netherlands is a popular travel destination because the beaches and villages invite you to explore. Coffee plays a big role in Dutch culture. The smell of fresh coffee is everywhere and every break is celebrated with a cup. Here on Texel, however, there is a special variant: the Texelse Koffie. This coffee specialty is characterized by the way it is prepared, as a local roastery uses special beans and techniques that make the coffee special. Many cafés on the island offer this special blend. When you visit, you should definitely try a cup.

I remember the first time I drank Texelse Koffie: the taste was full-bodied, slightly nutty, and the atmosphere of the small café was unforgettable.

Preparation of Texelse Koffie

Texelse Koffie can also be enjoyed at home. When buying, make sure to buy freshly roasted beans, ideally from the roasters on Texel. The blends from Texelse Branding are particularly recommended because they are known for their quality.

Recipe for Texelse Koffie


30 ml herbal bitters
0,3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp whipped cream
100 ml of coffee


Prepare this delicious Texelse Koffie in four easy steps:

  1. Brew your favorite coffee and pour a cup into a tall glass.
  2. Add a shot glass of Jutter (Texel herbal bitters).
  3. Stir in 1-2 teaspoons of brown sugar, depending on how sweet you like it.
  4. Top it all off with a big dollop of whipped cream.

Your Texel coffee is ready! Enjoy!

I like to use a French Press or an AeroPress to prepare the coffee because they bring out the full flavor of the beans. A tip: the water should not be boiling, just hot, so that the flavors are better preserved.

The beans from Texel are ideal as a souvenir or gift, as they come in attractive packaging and make a wonderful souvenir. You can also find beautiful mugs and accessories in the local shops to complete the experience.

Texelse Koffie is produced by Texel Branding. Here you can also experience the roasting process up close. When buying Texelse Koffie, you should look for fresh roasts. Local markets as well as the roastery itself offer the best opportunities to find high-quality beans. You can also order the coffee varieties online. The conversations with the producers, who are happy to talk about their work, are particularly exciting.
