About museum

The museum is based on the private collection of a St. Petersburg family and is the only one of its kind not only in St. Petersburg, but also in Russia. Its employees assign themselves the task of supporting the development of coffee culture. That is why in our museum you can learn about the benefits of coffee, learn how to make and drink it correctly, and learn the history of this ancient drink, as well as the traditions of different countries.

During the tour “From Grain to Cup” of the museum’s exposition, extensive information is given on ancient legends and the history of coffee, the way it is processed, and the culture of drinking. Museum visitors will also learn how, when, and from where coffee came to Russia, as well as where and how it is grown, harvested, prepared, and drunk.

In our museum you can participate in various coffee tastings. Beginning coffee lovers are advised to attend the “5 Tastes” tasting show, where participants will try how the same coffee made in five different ways changes its taste. All drinks are prepared on the basis of a proprietary museum blend.

For advanced coffee lovers, we hold many other events: mono-grade cupping sessions, roasting workshops, and coffee tasting with various accompanying products (spices, alcohol, etc.). The Museum of Coffee also sells coffee beans. If the guest wishes, we can always do the right grinding for any cooking method. In addition to coffee, in our souvenir shop, coffee lovers can purchase accessories for making coffee (cezve, moka pot, manual coffee grinders, French presses), and souvenirs (perfume, jewelry, candles or magnets).

For Petersburgers and guests of our city, the Coffee Terrace is open at the museum. While a real barista is working on your coffee, you can relax while enjoying the view of the Neva River. For those who are hungry, we offer hearty business lunches, snacks, and desserts.

A pleasant bonus for each guest who buys a ticket to the Coffee Museum for the tour will be a 50% discount on classic coffee drinks from the Coffee Terrace coffee card (espresso, americano, cappuccino, latte) and a 20% discount on elite varieties (Jamaica Blue Mountain and Kopi Luwak).
