The one great thing about Riyadh was that we have always had unique coffee shops popping up. For years I would sit and think how I wish that I could try all of them, and how cool it would be to do it with others that enjoyed trying new cafes as well and making friends along the way.
Finally, in 2018 I decided to stop thinking and just do it, I figured that no one would even show up, but I was shocked when we filled an entire floor in a café. It was the perfect mix of locals, expats, men and women. The majority of us did not even know one another, but everyone was just networking, laughing and trying different coffees. It was better than I had expected.
Riyadh Coffee Club has grown over the years and we have had the chance to meet many new people, people we would have never had the honor of meeting and we have been able to try great coffee all over the city.
Sadly, due to Corona19 we have to put our meetups on a standstill for a while to make sure that our community is safe, but we are in the works of doing online meetings where we still enjoy one another’s company, have coffee and get our coffee education on.
