Gooooooooood coffee!

No it's not good, it's breathtaking! But don't even think of messing up this delicious master piece coffee with milk! It's supposed to be virgin and black. Mhhhhmmmm.... We liked especially the one from Colombia! Congratulations Tim, I highly admire you and your friendly team.

As coffee lovers, a visit to Tim Wendelboe was high on our to do list for Oslo and it didn't disappoint. The cafe is close to the centre of town and was handily just a few minutes walk from where we were staying. Given Tim's reputation it wasn't a surprise to find the cafe packed but we found a spot...

The coffee was sensational, as described in everything read. The care and time taken to prepare the coffee as well as its presentation on a board was just lovely. Staff are friendly and the interiors are great! The only reservation for me is the lack of seating. Great on a sunny day to sit outside, but next to no chairs... More

The Finca Tamana espresso is simply wonderful. The chilled, creamy cappuccino they serve has a texture and taste like nothing else.

I just to love this place, I still kind of do, but I miss the nerdiness and dedication of the original crew. The emphasise on aeropress is great, but I miss superior shots of espresso from time to time. I like that they roast coffee by the waiting line and that they offer single origin espressos instead of the trend... More

I came here on a beautiful Sunday morning for a coffee fix and it was Sublime. I had a latte which was so tasty! I had to come back the next day for more! I don't think I'll ever have a nicer coffee! Bravo Tim!

It's a really small place, so you need to know it to find it, but there I tasted the best cappuccino ever, so creamy and delicious! If you like coffee you have to go for sure. And it's not even that expensive for Norway.

I went there as an activity. This was my first coffee cupping. Eric, our coffee connoisseur, was extremely knowledgeable and was very helpful for someone who knew nothing!

The courtado of Colombian coffee was very good and strong. We had however come to have breakfast and were a bit disappointed as coffee was all you can get in this coffee shop. There was no fat-free milk either, with "helmjölk" the coffee milk covered my mouth much more than usually.

Yes, this coffee shop is truly inspiring! Wendelboe has created a wonderful place where every detail is treated with care, from the selection and roasting of beans, the measuring & grinding of coffee, water temperature, etc. the employees are so kind and happy to tell customers all about the process. Although I had a very expensive cup of coffee (because... More
