Description: La Torrefazione is a third wave coffee shop; by knowing our supply chain we can guarantee the quality and taste of our coffees. All of our baristas have taken a barista exam, they both know how to make coffee but also the story behind each of our coffees. To us, a great cup of coffee is a piece of art and all the steps on the beans way to the cup are important. We serve breakfast, lunch, salads and sandwiches. Our popular brunch is served during the weekend.

I like this place. The interior design is nice, something you rarely see in Helsinki. I'm a tea drinker so I value their small but good tea list. You get a nice big cup of tea and can get more hot water for your tea leaves for free. The baristas make the coffees look beautiful which even a tea drinker can enjoy :)

I'm giving only three starts due to food and service: Their cakes and sandwiches are ok but not great. The breakfast is a bit lame but the chevre salad is tasty. In all of my visits I have never gotten smiles from the staff even though they do give good and prompt service. Still, a smile would be nice...

The excellent coffee, sandwiches and food in the middle of the day - the nice baristas who are ready to explain and help even if you don't really have a clue about the fine side of coffee - Amazing!

If you're a fan of excellent coffee, this is the place in Helsinki. Location is perfect, too. Cafe itself is a bit small and usually crowded, but otherwise very nice. Nice lunch and sandwiches, too.

The one in Aleksanterinkatu is always really packed, at least always when I have tried to go there. The coffee is good yes, but you can get just as good from other places as well. The prices are a bit too high in relation to what you get, and the staff is always a bit grumpy.

This place is easy to walk past as you can see just a door and stairs to upstairs. But if you find it, you'll get the best coffee in town. They have their own roastery in Helsinki, so the coffee is really fresh and tasty. Cappucino in here comes with the smoothest milk foam ever and the coffee itself is perfect.
