Welcome to coffee nerd - specialty coffee in Heidelberg

Hi, my name is Thomas and I am the owner of coffee nerd in Heidelberg.

Inspired by the early coffee scene in Berlin 2008 and my passion for lightly roasted coffee I opened coffee nerd in 2012 in Heidelberg. Since the very first day we have a straight and simple concept, our main goal is to prepare the possibly best cup of coffee we can and share our passion for coffee with our guests in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.

On our menu you will find coffee, roasted by very well known international roasters, like La Cabra, Coffee Collective, Drop Coffee, Friedhats, Manhattan Coffee. We change our coffee menu every 2-3 weeks, so you can always expect something new.

We would love to welcome you at our two Cafés in Heidelberg:

coffee nerd - specialty coffee
Rohrbacher Str. 9

This is our original Café located very central in Heidelberg with a laid back atmosphere, perfectly to meet your friends and hang out for nice cup of coffee.

coffee nerd - specialty coffee
Fischmarkt 4

This is our new Café opened in 2023, a very minimalistic place located in the old town of Heidelberg. Here we have a very modern coffee bar and offer a variety of world class coffees from the best roasters around Europe!


We only want to sell coffee that tastes great, consistently and with transparency and honesty. We buy coffees directly from the producers and from trusted importers Europe-wide. We want our packaging to be reused, refilled and at the very least recycled.

Sweven Coffee

A journey that has reflected on our vision and perception for execution of quality and service, excellence and dedication to craft. A craft of roasting and sharing the finest and most dynamic coffees we could possibly source. To build concrete relationships that last lifetime and proven friendships through sharing special moments.


We select our coffees based on their unique tasting profiles and of course that are 100% fully traceable. We partner with importers that share our values and we roast each one of our coffees carefully to bring the best flavours they have to offer.

Manhattan Coffee

With Manhattan we are striving for sweetness and provenance. We love to work with producers and traders that are as exited about their product and the future of coffee and it’s people as we are. We focus on bringing the flavour of origin into your cup of coffee. Every Manhattan coffee is sourced ethically and sustainably.

La Cabra

Taste – and almost exclusively, taste – has informed La Cabra’s roasting style ever since. There’s a purity that I look for when I say brightness – a purity of taste. I don’t want to drink a coffee without brightness; brightness drives sweetness.
