Miley Cyrus has been in the headlines for her recent European Music Awards on-stage toke-up. The entertainer has also been spotted at the Amsterdam coffee shop “Green House” with various DJs and celebrities – reportedly spending up to four hours at a time there. We know that this may sound like living the Amsterdam dream to many young people, but Amsterdam's coffee culture is about so much more than taking blunt after blunt to the dome in some smokey glorified juice bar.
Miley, you do you – smoke that reefer with your friends if you want. But between rent-by-the-hour bong tokes and space cake tasting menus, you should take some time out to explore the quality espressos and drip coffee options in AMS. There's great coffee to be found if you look beyond the coffee shops.
Amsterdam has become a serious hot-bed of excellent coffee in the last few years with an explosion of new cafes (including this new beauty from Coffee Company). If Miley wants to find them, all she needs to do is grab of one of these Amsterdam Disloyalty Cards (pictured above) for a quick guide to some of Amsterdam's hottest coffee bars.
The explosion of specialty coffee in Amsterdam has been well-documented, with published guides by the likes of DCILY, SMTHNG, The Coffeevine, and Phil Bass. We've waded through the all the coverage to see just what Miley is in store for her on her floaty, mildly dissociative Disloyalty journey. Also Miley, if you're reading this, you should totes stop for some frites oorlog along the way (fries with Indonesian sate sauce, an Amsterdam street food staple); they're super good and you look great, so treat yourself.
