OUR STORY

Where specialty coffee meets sustainable lifestyle.

We love coffee, but climate change is a serious issue. If we don’t change our ways we will lose a lot - including coffee. We need to actively make an effort to protect the planet, coffee plantations and therefore the livelihoods of the farmers. That’s why we built sango - to encourage everyone to be more conscious of the way they live. We believe there are many good habits we can build especially as coffee drinkers.

 

We converted a historical building from 1670 with a traditional Amsterdam-style clock gable into a cozy store.

Our basement is a showroom for ECM espresso machines and JURA fully automatic coffee machines. As an official dealer, we are here to help you choose the best coffee machine for you to use at home. On the main & second-floor, you can enjoy a great cup of specialty coffee, carefully selected and roasted at our micro-roastery. You can also attend one of our coffee workshops here to learn more about coffee. While we strive for great hospitality, we also hope to inspire everyone to be more ecoconscious through practicing sustainability at our store.

We chose the name sango, which means corals in Japanese. We are inspired by how sustainable practices have always been embodied in the traditional Japanese lifestyle. I am very grateful for my wife Kaho for introducing me to her beautiful culture. She challenges me as an individual, as a business owner, and as a father, to make ecoconscious decisions.

 

We hope to inspire many of you through sango, and hope that you will join us on our green journey.

We care for you and our planet.
