D16 Coffee is an enthusiastic team of baristas and specialty coffee roasters from Split boasting a roastery, charming coffee shop in the heart of Diocletian’s Palace and an espresso bar in a busy district near old town.
At D16 Coffee, we always strive to source the best green beans from the current season which we freshly roast, allowing our passionate baristas to pour the greatest coffee to our customers. We exclusively use 100% arabica specialty coffee beans that comply with the highest standards of farming, drying, sorting, transporting and roasting set by the Specialty Coffee Association. Our baristas and roasters are educators and innovators, constantly experimenting with new blends and brew methods to ensure the smoothest cup every time.
Our name, D16, is simply an abbreviation of our first address and location of our flagship coffee shop (Dominisova 16) which pays homage to medieval archbishop and scientist Marco Antonio de Dominis who devised the theory of light and the theory of the rainbow. Therefore, our signature light roast is called Dominis blend.
We are proud of Croatia’s rich coffee drinking culture which has been shaped by the Ottomans, Venetians, and Austro-Hungarians. Thus our locations and branding is adorned by quirky illustrations by academic artist Luka Duplancic who showcases this millennia-long tradition merged with urban elements to represent our third wave approach and modern-day’s demand for an even better cup.
D16 Coffee also offers hospitality professionals with basic and intermediate barista training as well as packaged blends and single origin coffee, bottled cold brew and merchandise for wholesale and retail sale.
