mamacoffee is a coffee roastery that runs 6 cafes and its own craft bakery.
The impuls to found mamacoffee was our trip to South Ethiopia in 2007. One year later, we have formally opened our first cafe in Prague, Londýnská street, and our coffee roastery. We have found one of the first speciality coffee roastery and the oldest fair roastery in the Central Europe. Thanks to this fact, we can guarantee the freshness of our coffee that we choose from the latest farmers’ harvests every year. Our offer is therefore seasonal and is changing regularly.
Gradually, we have opened 6 more cafes in Prague: Three with the brand of mamacoffe, Cafe Jedna, Kavárna pod lipami and a sister coffee roastery Original Coffee with a cafe in Betlémská street in Prague. We have also opened our own bakery, we have run specialized cafe e-shop and a program for wholesale customers. We are able to supply them not only with coffee, tea, cane sugar and our other products, but also with a variety of quality accessories and technologies.
We often provide advisory services to partner cafes and we help companies, offices and other entities to find an optimal solution for their premises. Also, we offer courses to the public focused on homemade preparation of coffee and specialized barista courses.
In 2011, we found Prague Coffee Festival, the largest event focused on coffee in Central and Eastern Europe. We have passed on the organization of the Festival to the Coffee Embassy, association that promotes coffee culture and provides support to coffee professionals.
We follow coffee beans that end in your cup from the beginning of their journey. The key factors for us are dignified and fair business which guarantees a equitable purchase prices of raw materials in poor developing countries. Thanks to this fact, children of farmers can attend school, the „new slavery“ is abolished and farmers can develop their farms and concentrate on better environmental protection. We always enter in personal contact with farmers and we are trying to support them on many levels. We are interested in their stories and we share them also with you. In addition to coffee, we import also tea and sugarcane.
A cheesecake, a leavened bread, a muffin, a carrot cake or a traditional bundt cake… All this (and even more) we bake ourselves. We want to make sure that everything is fresh, made from seasonal ingredients of high quality and absolutely delicious.
Employment and cooperation
We are always trying to support wider communities, that’s why we have found the company fair balírna s.r.o. – the first social enterprise and sheltered workshop focused on packing fair trade products.
We are convinced that a strong society should integrate the most of its members and that the chance should be given to all of us. One of the best ways of the integration is, in our opinion, work. That’s why we offer work positions to the people who have any disadvantage on the labor market, e.g.: disabled people, newcomers, parents after maternity leave etc.
