The 'coming soon' sign had just been taken off when I visited Black Gold Amsterdam the day after their opening party, and this week a new window sticker with the iconic Italian espresso maker will be marking the new Coffee & Vinyl spot at 'Korte Koningsstraat'.
Siebrand van Hengel, owner of Black Gold Amsterdam always had a passion for music and coffee. His dream starting his own business where he could combine the two made him startup his own crowd funding project last year. A year later the shop opened it's doors.
"Good music deserves vinyl. I want to share my passion for music (with a preference for Seventies soul, deep funk, P-funk, soul,boombap hip hop and jazz) and create a place where people discover the magic of dust and grooves" Siebrand explains.
While visiting the store music was playing in the background and I had a taste of "white label" coffee... A perfect combination...I will be back for more soon!
