Good coffee and tea and friendly and knowledgeable service are one thing, but now many people find it important that the crops are cultivated by sustainable methods. Not only for the earth but also for those who work on the land; sustainable agriculture is the future. That typifies is the type of shops Simon Levelt is.

Alfredo Potjes, the national Illy dealer has owned this shop for many years, he sells espresso machines for beans, servings and capsules by Illy and he also has his own webshop. He really does not need further introduction.
His shop is well worth a visit, a showroom with lots of different machines and they are very knowledgeable. He also sells small spare parts and has a repair shop for the Quick Mill. He has a fantastic display of all the various Illy cups decorated and designed by famous artists. You can see all the various limited editions and also buy them. If you do not live in The Hague have a look at their webshop.
