Copenhagen = The Coffee Collective = Coffee Utopia

We fell in love with the city and the coffee and didn't want to leave.

Unfortunatley we only had a few days here but managed to visit The Coffee Collective 3 times within 24 hours.

For some reason I expected it to be much bigger than it is but the coffee was as good if not better than expected.

When we arrived in the morning we were shocked to see the footpath had disappeared overnight, we couldn't get in for our coffee!
We could see Klaus sitting inside an empty cafe and were stuck with other customers trying to figure out how to get in, soon enough the roadworks crew built us a bridge.

Over the 2 days we worked our way through the entire coffee menu, they might even offer Siphon soon as Kirby gave them her two.
The Shakerato's were refreshing on a hot summer's day.

Here Klaus is aeropressing it up for us - new crop Panama La Esmeralda!

Casper roasting two days after he lost his World Cup Tasting title but as he pointed out, he's still the fastest!

There's plenty more to Copenhagen and the best way to fit in is to hire a bike or use the city's free bikes in summer.

We made it to Estate Coffee for more great coffee including clover where you could choose from several singles on offer.
For espresso they offered 2 blends (black & white) and 1 single origin.

On the last day we made it to Risteriet for one last coffee.
They had an excellent range of coffee machinery and accessories but after such great coffee's at TCC and Estate they couldn't match it.

We've had it pretty tough finding good coffee in Europe but Copenhagen lived up to, and exceeded all expectations, i'm sure those of you that attended the 2008 WBC agree.

  1. We tried to find good coffee in Copenhagen all day yesterday and finally gave up. The Illum bar was the worst! Next time I'll first check out the internet for good tips like these :-)
