Hello from an Aussie in England.

My wife and I are planning to head off for a few weeks to travel around Denmark and would appreciate anyone's advice on good places to go for espresso.

Our trip will start in Billund, then go via Ribe - the island of Aero - Humlebaek (maybe pop into Fredensborg Slot for a nice cup of tea with "Our Mary") - Copenhagen - Aarhus - Skagen - and then back to Billund.

After doing a search on this forum, Estate Coffee and Risteriet keep coming up, however if there are any other lovely little places dotted around our trip which are worth seeking out then it would be great to know of them.

And slightly off topic, if any Scandies out there have any advice on other things we shouldn't miss on our trip to these towns, they will also be gratefully received. Just put the word "coffee" in the sentence to keep it on topic. ;)

Thanks very much in advance.

Cheers, Travis.

Hey bro!

If I were you, I'd be posting in the NZ/Aussie section.
The WBC was in Copenhagen a couple of months back, and the NZ and aussie reps reguarly post in that forum.
I think there were a few tag-a-longs, too, who might help. I know there were a few top recommendations floating about, so maybe ask there or try traipsing through old posts.
Also try TooMuchCoffee.com. It's similar to this site, but euro-focused. This site is much more NZ/aussie/US/Canada, hence the low post count in the Euro section.

Good luck!
Kyle

ps. Visit 'Cristiania' when you're in Copenhagen!

Hey Travis!

In June the Aussies dominated Copenhagen. I know nothing about the other cities but the following are definitely worth a visit in Copenhagen -

  1. Coffee Collective - run by 4 incredible people, owned by Klaus (WBC champ), Linus, Casper (current world cupping champ) and Peter
  2.  Kontra Coffee - it's mainly for training and equipment purchases but there you can meet Troels (also a WBC champ), also it's not far from the Coffee Collective.
  3. Estate Coffee is amazing, they've also got an awesome set up at their roastery, worth a visit if organised in advance.

There were a few more the names of which escape me right now. I'll post some more if I remember. Coffee Collective was my personal favourite but the others were also fantastic.

Have fun!

Huh? I have had their coffee (courtesy of Teme) and it was some of the finest espresso I have ever tasted.

A list with addresses. All are in Copenhagen:

   * Cafe Europa, Amagertorv 1
   * The Coffee Collective, JŠgersborggade 10. (B)
   * The Coffee Factory, Gothersgade 21
   * Dag H, Dag Hammarskj÷lds Alle 36-40
   * Estate Coffee, Gammel Kongevej 1
   * Kaffe & Vinyl, Skydebanegade 4
   * Kontra Coffee, Dag Hammarskj÷lds Alle 36 (B, E, NOT a cafe, they only sell beans and equipment)
   * Moccashop, Smallegade 43A. (B, E, not a cafe, but they do sell espresso)
   * Risteriet, StudiestrŠde. (B, E)
   * Verdens Mindste Kaffebar, Tullinsgade 1.

(B) sells freshly roasted espresso beans, (E) sells espresso equipment

My favorites (for the coffee+attitude): The Coffee Collective, Risteriet, and Estate.

Also see this map:
Nordic Espresso Map (maps.google.com)

Note to Len: I believe that what Anuta writes about Kontra, refers to the shop: i.e. they do not sell espresso, only beans and equipment. But the cafe Dag H is placed just left of Kontra -- and is somehow related to Kontra (so this is probably a great place to taste prepared beans from Kontra).
