If you think that we Brazilians consume a lot of coffee, it is because you do not know Norwegian culture! For those who do not know, Norway is among the three countries that most consumes coffee in the world, and Brazil is much lower on that list.
For that reason, there are plenty of good places to have coffee there. Of course, you can find a Starbucks or two around Oslo, but the fun is in the local cafes. If you are scheduled to travel there, be prepared to write down all the tips that I will give you now ?
Tim Wendelboe is one of the most amazing places for coffee lovers. The name of the place takes its name from the owner, who is recognized worldwide for his care with coffee and also as a barista.
Their differential lies in the grain selection process and the way of thinking about the product. They see coffee as something fresh and the beans must be freshly ground to maintain the original flavor, you know? The staff at this cafe is also one of the best in the city, so you can be sure that you will taste an incredible drink!
Opened in 2013 by Odd-Steinar Tøllefsenis, Supreme Roastworks is another coffee shop that is always among the best rated in Oslo. The care they take with coffee is to leave anyone delighted, both with the production process and with the handling of the beans.
Their customers often praise the coffee flavored ice cream they sell. How will you be doing a different tour, it doesn’t cost anything to prove it, right? The area in which it is located is great for walking and discovering shops and cute places along the way.
With a pleasant atmosphere and a welcoming atmosphere, Stockfleths is a very small and perfect cafe for those looking for a tasty drink. Their service is usually very fast, ideal for those in a hurry and want to go back to following the itinerary of the trip. In fact, barista Tim Wendelboe has even worked there for a while.
In addition to selling delicious coffee, the Java environment is a grace. Occupying a small space, it ends up becoming super cozy. However, it ends up getting very crowded at peak times and you may not find a good place to sit. Anyway, it’s worth taking a stop over there. Oh, and he also belongs to an award-winning barista – Robert Thoresen ?
Although it doesn’t just work as a cafe, I couldn’t fail to mention Brugata. Even though it is not their specialty, the coffee served there is full of flavor and the beans are always super fresh. The place is open until 23h, and even that part of the night the coffee continues to be served!
Also run by Robert Thoresen, Mocca is one of the best known cafes in the city. Because it is located in the Briskeby region, it has a more sophisticated and differentiated footprint.
I confess that I don’t think the environment is as charming as Java, but the quality of service and coffee is the same. The snacks sold there are also great and you can take the opportunity to buy packages with coffee beans sold there!
If you like vintage decor and other things with that same vibe, be sure to go to Hendrix Ibsen. His decor features band t-shirts and vinyl records and a shelf in the back of the cafe. Can you imagine?
In addition to enjoying a very tasty and carefully prepared coffee, you have the opportunity to be in a super cool and different environment. For those traveling in a group, the place has several tables perfect for spending the afternoon chatting ?
