Our Coffee

Coffee has long been a daily ritual for many – whether you need it to survive your morning, start your day, or get through a meeting.   For many it’s not just about daily survival but rather a passion, re-imagined and innovated. Coffee can be tied to a memory or a moment, the aroma and taste alone can bring back good times and create celebrations.

Where to find our roastery

In a metropolitan desert oasis lies a multicultural hub full of ultramodern architecture. Born in Dubai, our Roastery caters to everyone and is another piece of what makes this city a sought after destination.

Tucked between the dunes and skyscrapers is The Sum Of Us Café, resting on the ground floor of Burj al Salam in the Trade Centre area on 6th street. Find it by following the smell of roasted coffee beans and fresh baked bread.
