THE COFFEE COLLECTIVE
The Coffee Collective has three locations in Copenhagen, all very different. One is apart of the fast paced Torvehallerne market, another feeling like a little coffee lab with an open kitchen and the last (our favourite) a big warm cafe, with the brewery on the other side of a see through glass wall. The Coffee Collective pay their farmers an amount they think is fair and have a personal relationship with them. They have many types of coffee available and will happily tell you their story if you’re interested.
Kompa’ 9 is a sweet little cafe that feels like you’ve been invited to a tasteful Danish persons home, that is cozy and offers food that make your taste buds happy. Kompa’ 9 believes that simple and tasty food is key and that sustainability is important. They even consider the chocolate they use the best in the world. We met our dearest friend Signe there and we spent some good time together.
