Why "The Underdog" ?
We all have been or felt underdogs in our life.
Underdog is a person or a group of people, who is expected to lose the battle. In the case the underdog wins, the outcome of this victory is an upset.
And this will be our purpose: to create an upset with our every day work.
The Underdog is a micro-roastery, a coffee shop, a coffee academy and an alternative bar in Thiseio (Athens), Greece.
We are a company that takes pride in serving a unique coffee experience, breaking the anonymity of served beans by bringing out a delicate and dynamic clarity in every coffee we produce. We feel fortunate to be sourcing and roasting some of the finest and cleanest coffees available plus serving to all of you a wide selection of unique small batch beers and off course tasteful cocktails.
We are forever curious and always uncompromising in our quest for delicious specialty coffee-beer-cocktail.
Can I buy your products ?
Of course you can!!
With great pleasure we will help you to choose from our Retail Store:
- Coffee (freshly roasted for espresso or filter)
- Beer (a wide selection from all over the world)
We will also explain to you how to use them like a pro in your home.
You can also buy all above from our e-shop and why not book a seat to one of our Workshops.
Can I order coffee, beer, tea, accessories of "The Underdog" using the internet ?
Do you serve coffee for Take Away ?
Of course we do!
However, because we want to be able to offer you exactly the same quality of beverages you enjoy in “The Underdog” we have chosen not to brew espresso and all of its hot beverages for Take Away because we are not happy with the final result (as you will understand, we take very seriously what they do).
We serve at a price of 1.60 euro ONLY the following drinks and we are sure 100% that have exactly the same quality as that of beverages you enjoy everyday in “The Underdog”:
- Flat White
- Filter Coffee
- Espresso Freddo
- Cappuccino Freddo
- Latte Freddo
- Cold Drip
If someone wants another drink, we will deny (politely) to serve that particular beverage for take away.
Can I drink/find your coffee in another coffeeshop ?
Off course you can!
You can check our Wholesale page and find our Stockists as we like to name our wholesale customers! They all have been trained by “The Underdog” training team and they will serve you the best coffee in the area they are based.
We encourage you to visit them and taste our coffee in their coffeeshop.
When and by whom does your coffee being roasted ?
Our coffee is roasted by Tasos Delichristos and you all have the opportunity to participate in our weekly Public Cupping with him and taste the latest selection of our coffees . For more information check our Workshops page.
In order to have the best possible results on our coffees, we at “The Underdog”, roast at least two times a week and sometimes more often in order to find freshly roasted coffees in our selection of coffees.
For this reason you will always enjoy the best result of our coffees, and the freshest the coffee is (always within reasonable frames) the better its the characteristics will be, compared to a coffee that has been roasted more than 30 days ago or more.
Why do you sell coffee beans and not ground and packed ?
Once the coffee is ground, its aromas begin to fade. For this reason we do not sell ground and packaged coffee at the corner of Retail in our store, but we sell coffee beans.
To grind coffee at home is the perfect scenario of course, but because many of our clients do not have a grinder, we grind for them their chosen coffee from the corner of our Retail. So every week they enjoy fresh coffee at home.
