Our History


Fixed Gear Coffee – Cauberg opened its doors in August 2018. The philosophy of Fixed Gear Coffee is to bring the best of cycling and coffee together. In February 2020 we expanded with a 2nd shop located in the heart of Maastricht. It is the mission of the founders Brian Megens and Shivani Achrekar to create an all inclusive place wherein everybody, from non-cyclist to World Tour pro, feels welcome. Fixed Gear Coffee is a place where people come in, with or without their bike, to enjoy a cup of coffee with some homemade cake, to admire our bike collection, photography work, fix their bike, or to check out our latest arrivals of cycling apparel. For more info about our single origin specialty coffee, our homemade cakes, the brands that we have in store, or our rides & events check out the website - but even better, drop by our place. We hope to welcome you very soon!

Coffee Before Cycling


Coffee before Cycling is a way for us to express how we feel, see and experience the upcoming coffee & cycling culture. The foundation of Coffee before Cycling is being inclusive: everybody is welcome regardless of their level of bike riding, religion, ethnicity, or sexuality. Everyone finds their own balance between riding hard and making time for a coffee stop. Although the level difference in bike riding might be huge, we all can share a good cup of coffee together and our love for the bike. With Coffee before Cycling we host rides, events, and do collaborations with creatives and like minded brands. No matter what, always Coffee before Cycling! #COFFEEBEFORECYCLING

Our coffee


As much as cycling is a passion for us, our place wouldn’t be half as good without our third wave specialty single origin coffee and homemade cakes. As a progressive coffee bar we believe each different coffee (single origin or estate) should entail a different tasting experience. That’s why we always prioritise our coffees to have pronounced taste notes of the coffee bean and we avoid the bitter, dry, and roasty taste which unfortunately most people are familiar with as ‘coffee’. For our coffee beans we have an amazing cooperation with White Label Coffee, a micro roaster from Amsterdam which won best roaster at the Amsterdam Coffee Festival ’19. We also found an amazing roaster in Sey Coffee. Located in Brooklyn, NYC Sey Coffee has made a big name for itself in the world of coffee. In 2019 they were awarded best Coffee Bar in the whole of the US. After we tasted some of their coffees we were sold and we had to get them in. More locally, we also work with Dutch Barista Coffee and occasionally you can also find coffee from other top roasters from all around the world on our grinders and shelves. On top of that we make our espresso’s on a beautiful Kees van der Westen Mirage Idrocompresso 3 group levermachine which pushes the water through the coffee grinds from 12 to 0 bar creating a unique tasting profile making single origin coffee even more tasteful than on a traditional pump espresso machine. To make sure that our milky coffees are also top of the bill we only work with farm fresh Jersey Milk and for those preferring Vegan milky drinks, we also work with Oatly. In short, no matter how you drink your coffee, we’ll make sure it is one of the best you have ever tasted! For those who want to make great coffee at home, we also sell the coffee beans we have on our grinders!
