We are so excited to share our new book with you. We've been working on it for a few years... a true grassroots effort by a group of Amsterdam locals and regular visitors. What we've made is the first of it's kind. We have detailed, reviewed, and photographed ALL of the coffeeshops in the city. Now you don't have to miss that special shop ... or perhaps any of them?! Here are the book details - we really hope you enjoy it.



Did you know there are 168 coffeeshops in the city of Amsterdam? The CONNOISSEUR GUIDE covers them ALL. Inside, you’ll find detailed descriptions of each, along with a list of amenities, reviews, and hundreds of vivid photographs. It is the first book of its type... 368 pages of Amsterdam’s iconic cannabis scene, written and photographed by a team of longtime coffeeshop regulars.

Veterans of the scene here will undoubtedly recognize the strengths of certain establishments. Some are run by individuals that are highly passionate about cannabis genetics. You can find some truly outstanding flower if you know where to look. Others specialize in fine hashish, or gourmet edibles. Then there are the shops we really like to hang out in. Among them, some of the most comfortable, chill, and unpretentious establishments. While we review all of the coffeeshops in Amsterdam in this book, we do highlight our favorites in a variety of categories, such as those with exceptional weed, hash, and edibles.

Plus, we cover the unusual. There are a bunch of shops you might not want to miss for other reasons… such as:

  • The Movie Theater. At the top of one of the city’s largest coffeeshops, they usually have a “trippy” movie playing.
  • The Ex-Police Station. Now a coffeeshop, they sell cannabis out of the old jail in the basement. This place is a must see.
  • A Michelin Star chef created a line of edibles for these shops. They’re delicious, and potent!
  • A Retro Arcade & Pinball Museum. This popular locals’ coffeeshop hosts a huge collection of old games.
  • The Art Gallery. Another locals’ favorite, this coffeeshop feels more like your friend’s living room than a business.
  • The Pigeon Coop. There’s even a coffeeshop with birdcages built into the back wall. Up for a smoke and some bird watching? Too strange!?

With so many coffeeshops in this city, you can have a wide range of experiences. By covering the entirety of the Amsterdam coffeeshop scene, this guide should help you find those places that best match what you are looking for…and avoid those that don’t. With a little research, you can turn a great trip into an epic one!
