“No restaurant here! Arrogant baristas!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

Good coffee yeah... But really, staying in queue for a rip off coffee to go served by arrogant and condescending staff... No way! Also the owner brings his own coffee when he goes to restaurant... Madness! Plenty of great coffee shops in Oslo, not that one ever again!

“Best coffee in the world??”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Only coffee - no food, no tea not hot chocolate, no wireless Internet... No distractions. They roast the coffee on the premises, import their own beans, work directly with farmers to improve quality, etc, etc, etc and the service behind the bar is great.

The taste of the coffees is something else: fresh, fruity, sweet, full - anything but the bitterness normally associated with the black stuff. A real eye-opener (especially the black coffees). Plus the cold cappuccino is a treat and its arrival on the menu marks the beginning of summer in Oslo...

A MUST for any Oslo visitor/local.

“Great Coffee Roaster”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

TW is a great place to grab coffee. They roast to express coffee at its best. Ethically sourced, superb quality, if you want a great coffee experience in Oslo, this is one of the places not to miss.

“Hardcore coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

The best coffee anywhere in the world! The baristas among the best in Norway. The design worth a visit alone. Only coffee is served, though. If you're hungry, pop around the corner to the focaccieria connected to the restaurant Villa Paradiso.

“This is NOT a restaurant. It's a coffeeshop.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

......but it is the best coffee you can find, maybe the best in Europe.

By the way: they do not serve food.
