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
Poststraße 18-20

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. Sadly we had to move out from our original space. At the moment Poststraße 18-20 is in constructions. Opening will be Summer 2024

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!


In Prolog we are always doing our best, not only when brewing your coffee at the bar, but also when handling the coffee beans from farm to table and beyond.

In terms of taste, what is "a great coffee experience" to Prolog?

"It's a coffee that's at the same time delicious and sense-evoking."

Friedhats Coffee

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.

Coffee Collective

Creating the best coffee experiences in the world while helping farmers achieve more value is what drives us. At The Coffee Collective, we roast daily and focus on sustainability from seed to cup. With several competition awards in the bag, including gold in both the World Barista Championship and World Cup Tasting championships, we continue to explore exciting coffee experiences.


Koppi Roasters Sweden

A Matter Of Concrete

AMOC is as specialty coffee roastery based in one of the old warehouses of the Van Nelle Factory located in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Rob was a roaster for 8 years, and an entrepreneur in coffee for 6, before starting A Matter of Concrete made it possible to set up a dream roastery. Putting all the inspiration and ideas that he has gathered over the years from all over the world into this dream-coming-true.

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.
