    Hot spot for coffee enthusiasts. A little bit outside from the city/center. Take the Blue-Tram No. 12 to go there.

    Having had coffee in 60+ countries, this is the best coffee I've ever had, the one crema I dream about. Cortado or Aeropress if it's winter; cappuccino freddo or annisetta if it's summer. Perfection.

    Great coffee in Oslo. Not a lot of seating room inside, so better for to-go. Double latte is amazing. Only have whole milk which isn't super convenient. Would definitely recommend for coffee lovers.

    One of the best coffee places in Oslo overall. Nice interior and not too many people at once, so if you're lucky you can grab a seat. Fantastic aeropress brew and espresso.

    The coffee is superb. Be aware that the place is tiny and only serves coffee. Not the place to pretend it's your office. Together with Supreme they have the best coffee so it's a must;)

    I visited this place way too much in July. They're aeropresses are just so tasteful and complex. The El Salvador had a wonderful apple-acidity. The Kenya was wonderfully juicy. The Olke Bire... Mmm

    so small, so focused, so much fun. roaster in the front, counter in the back & a total of 3 chairs. (windowsill sits another 2) feels like neighborhood spot but runs like a Michelin-starred restaurant

    Don't miss to visit this place in Oslo Grunerlokka to taste the Clover's and Tim's famous coffee, probably one of the best coffee bars in Europe.

    With bare, blackened floorboards, the setting is austere. Pull up a wooden chair next to the roasters, listen to the scratchy transistor radio and lose yourself in one of the carefully selected brews.

    Kind of the soup nazi of the coffee world, without the angriness though! Great place and skiller baristas. Try of one of the aeropress on offer, hold the milk.

    The best coffee I've ever tasted and probably the best I'll ever taste. Their espresso is from another world (it's actually from Kenya but, you know...)

    In the summer months, grab an iced coffee and snag a spot outside. By far the best coffee in Oslo

    It's unbelievable that the coffee here is on another level compared to Monmouth, Coutume or Drop Coffee. I have tasted the perfect espresso.

    One of the top 5 coffees I've had in my life. This lives up to its enormously famous expectations. Had an iced coffee like creation with a double espresso shaken with anise syrup and cream.

    If they're serving iced coffee, give it a shot - a revelation in a wine glass.
