Excellent coffee

Coffee here is truly a different rate experience and one I am exceedingly happy to have discovered. Since my first visit here I've been converted. Don't be shocked that the coffee is a tad more expensive than an average chain - it's totally worth it for the taste experience. Also be prepared to... read more

Alright, if you want a good taste of what Scandinavian coffee way is, just go there! It is smooth, acid and creamy. Place is very cozy and you can smell just the right smell of coffee beans. This is a must go for coffee geeks!

This is a minimalist coffee bar - it's all about the coffee here - and they are outstanding at it. The place also contains a roastery that specialises in lighter roasts. They supply fresh roasted beans to the restaurant industry in Oslo and around the world from what they say. The baristas here are service oriented and know their stuff... More

The coffee here is definitely one of the best you can get in Oslo. The place has only a few tables and basically you just drink your coffee and go again. If you want to sit and relax, this is not your place. But for that you will find plenty of other places around. So just enjoy their coffee and... More

This place serves excellent Coffee, i would say the best in Oslo. It is somewhat pricy, but if you are in to coffee it is worth every penny.

When my wife and I first arrived in Oslo we walked into this coffee shop not knowing that we would enter coffee heaven. The coffee they serve there is excellent but the staff turned out to be even better. They were very cheerful and incredibly helpful in where to go to explore the best vintage clothing stores and antiques dealers.... More

It is a small store with a couple of small tables and several chairs. This is the only coffee shop that I have been to that does not sell sweets or any other food. Coffee is it. But it is great coffee! The lady who served me even told me to let the coffee cool down a little to have... More

Tim Wendelboe is among the elite of roasters and barristas in the world and have been so for years. He has developed a very light roasting technique that demands a lot of the beans. I recommend the coffees made from Ethiopian beans, but it depends on the season. Maybe the best aeropress coffee in the world.

This is by far the best coffee shop in Oslo provided you like coffee, and not sugary sweet, caffeinated Starbucks drinks. They serve coffee that borders on perfection. They roast their coffee themselves, and the baristas all have excellent knowledge of their products. Not the cheapest coffee in Oslo, but definitely the best.
