Third Wave
Wichteln 2015

Exchange coffee with the world

Under­stand the wichteln

Please read the instructions in order to know what the Wichteln is about and what you need to do.

If everybody reads and follows the rules, we can ensure a great Wichteln for everyone.

Sign up for the wichteln

Fill out the form with your information (if the address is incorrect, you won't receive any coffee). Then, wait for the e-mail with all the relevant information, like the name and address of the person you need to send coffee to.

Buy third wave (or speciality) coffee

It is very important that we agree on one standard.   The coffee should be
Fresh max. 5 days roasted before purchase
don't grind it
Filter coffee no espresso
From one origin/estate no blend
Third Wave Coffee

If you’re not sure what Third Wave or Specialty Coffee is, Wikipedia might help. If you’re not sure where to buy Third Wave/Specialty Coffee, take a look at this map.

(If this doesn't fit your taste, you can do a separate coffee exchange with people from our Facebook group.)

Send your coffee

Double-check the name & address. Send as soon as possible, so that the coffee will arrive as fresh as possible.

Most importantly, add a customs form CN22, and label the package as „gift“ and with „Whole Roasted Coffee Beans“ (then it should arrive without being held up in customs).

Wait for your third wave coffee

We know this is the hardest part. But relax, the coffee could come from the other side of the world, so it will take a while. When it arrives, enjoy the coffee, and share with others.

We would also appreciate a photo of your Wichteln experience via Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #thirdwavewichteln.

Avoid a bad wichteln

The form is closed

Happy Wichteln!
