The first thing we do in the morning -after waking up-, is making ourselves a huge cup of coffee. Both the smell and taste boosts our mood to start off our day right. You surely know how it feels! Do you know what’s even better? Drinking a freshly made cup of coffee made by your favorite barista. Because our headquarters is based in Aalst, we already know a lot of nice hotspots in town.
