Yusu comes from seryusu, the Surinamese word for serious. It does not only refer to seriously good coffee, but also makes a link to the urban subculture. Yusu is widely used in Dutch Hip-hop music and in slang. At Yusu they sell and serve various coffees. The beans are imported, selected and roasted in collaboration with Back to Black Coffee. Back to Black has been active in roasting its own coffee since 2005 and tries to achieve this in the most sustainable way possible.
The new coffee culture
They claim their staff is super sweet, pure & cool. And I have to say, they are totally right! They all have their own particular skills and experiences. All the delicacies are prepared in-house at Yusu. Co-founder Nicole has a huge passion for baking and developed the recipes for the cakes together with owner Kick. So if you feel like snacking at Yusu, try the traditional Surinamese pastry or the Brazilian cheese ball. Really nice!
