Coffee Travel

The Coffee Collective – Copenhagen


No trip to Copenhagen would be complete without a visit to Coffee Collective, a specialty coffee micro roastery with three outlets in the Danish capital. Coffee Collective is a big name among coffee lovers, all my barista friends recommended me to visit it!


Our AirBNB flat was in Nørrebro and only five minutes’ walk from Jægersborggade, where the first Coffee Collective roastery and shop opened in 2008.

I love Jægersborggade! It’s a peaceful street with wide sidewalks and barely no cars driving down as it’s at the heart of a residential area. There are tiny restaurants and bars, design shops and a lovely bakery just across the street from Coffee Collective. I saw several people buying takeaway coffee from Collective, then crossing the road to the bakery to get a fresh butter croissant and have breakfast on the sidewalk under the spring sun.


The Jægersborggade shop is formed of two rooms: the front one occupied mostly by the roasting machine, no tables/seats and quite unusually there is no bar! The espresso machine is placed against the wall, so the baristas are turning their backs on you when making the coffee. At the back there is another room with turquoise tables and windows facing a private courtyard.


Perfectly textured milk in the cappuccino!

Despite it being so close to our flat, we visited Coffee Collective in Jægersborggade only once, while I found myself going back to their other shop in Torvehallerne every day of my holiday!

Completely different from the understated, vintage look of the roastery in Nørrebro, the coffee bar at Torvehallerne market place is sleek, shiny and bright. A world map covers up the wall behind the team of skilled baristas, there is a brew bar and all the Coffee Collective single origins and blends available to buy are on display on the side.


The centre of attention is definitely the Coffee Collective branded Kees Van De Westen “Spirit” espresso machine.


There is a long table with stools by the window in front of the bar, as well as wooden tables and benches outside the market. We sat down for breakfast on a Sunday morning, watching the buzz of the city and having a different experience from the peaceful breakfast we had at Coffee Collective in Jægersborggade.


Hats down to Coffee Collective for creating two successful, yet so different spaces, reaching out to different clienteles and yet keeping in line with their brand. I loved both and I would definitely recommend you to visit.

So, finally, after three years, I made it to Copenhagen! Sadly I only got to the Torvehallerne branch of Coffee Collective (I had plans on my final day to head out to the roaster, but various things did not work out). However, I really enjoyed the coffee at Torvehallerne and it’s great to see speciality coffee in such a mainstream setting.

Many thanks,
