Definitely one of our personal favourite spots in Copenhagen, Democratic Coffee Bar is located in the heart of Copenhagen in a newly renovated building of the city library. This makes the café a perfect location for those of you who need to study, work or have a quick meeting while enjoying delicious coffee.
Except using their own coffee roast, Democratic Coffee from time to time enriches our experience with different specialty coffee roasts, just like Kopi from Sweden or Danish La Cabra.
And a delicious cup of coffee is not the only thing why it's worth the trip to Democratic Coffee. Their Danish will soothe your soul and a beautiful view of the busy streets of this pulsing city is a small but pleasant addition.
Hidden in the less touristy, but beloved location by the locals, Prolog Coffee Bar can be found in the renowned Meat Packing District.
Prolog has everything you would expect from a specialty coffee place. Amazing coffee, a wide selection of coffee drinks and perfect service. Feeling welcomed is definitely of the things that make the coffee experience unforgettable and enjoyable in the first place.
And that's exactly what Prolog is: unforgettable! No wonder the locals love to hang out here. If you'd like to prolong your experience, you can choose from a variety of Prolog coffee roasts and bring the best of Copenhagen with you.
Prolog roast coffee bean from the best locations from around the world, from Rwanda, to Ethiopia and Costa Rica, and you can find roasts for both espresso and filter coffee with rich flavours such as dates, toffee, or red apple, fruity tones of raspberries and peach or oriental black tea and jasmine.
You've probably heard of it, and it's no coincidence. Coffee Collective, founded in 2007 by a trio of coffee fanatics, is one of the best coffee brands that came from Scandinavia.
The quality of the brand is not only reflected in their experienced staff, who holds a gold medal in both World Barista Championship and World Cup Tasting but in each cup of coffee they prepare.
Coffee Collective is a successful brand with five locations around Copenhagen, with their roastery located inside the Godthabsvej coffee shop. Now, it is no wonder that each location throughout the day transforms into one of the busiest spots in Copenhagen.
The delicious coffee and only good vibes is a killer combination and would be definitely a shame not to experience.
This excellent mother-daughter duo that easily became a heart of Christianshavn consists of the Michelin star restaurant 108 and The Corner, praised and popular coffee shop serving some of the best coffee drinks in town.
Just like the light food and desserts have to be excellent, being served in setup under the wings of one of the best restaurants in the world, The Corner's coffee is roasted by Tim Wendelboe, Oslo-based world champion barista, and an eminent coffee roaster.
The coffee roasts vary depending on a season and since The Corner is all about precision and perfection in every single cup, their coffee is always freshly roasted and of the best origin.
The professional staff will prepare your perfect cup of coffee that you can enjoy with a wonderful view of Copenhagen canals and famous Nyhavn. The Corners is a perfect place to take your mind off any worries and just relax and enjoy your coffee. And if you stick around for the evening, The Corner turns into a wine bar by night.
This tiny cosy location hides a gem of a coffee taste and preparation. If you know Copenhagen even a little bit, you know that sometimes the best places are very well hidden in this buzzing city. But each one of them is worth the search.
CUB Coffee Bar is no exception, mainly because of the stunning view of Copenhagen city centre with its numerous canals. Of course, if we don't count the coffee, which is always the number one reason to visit.
In perfect harmony with classic danish design and a cup of specialty coffee, this is a spot for those who need an occasional break from work and need to breathe some fresh scandic air.

Sonny is a representation of Scandinavian culture. With 90% of ingredients being organic, and full focus on a locally sourced and seasonal menu, this coffee shop is doing great in every aspect, not only coffee preparation.
But when it comes to coffee, Sonny likes to experiment and discover new roasteries to support, once again, with a focus on domestic production. Every season, they look for top Danish roasteries and currently, they landed on La Cabra.
La Cabra started small, as a group of coffee enthusiasts roasting coffee in Aarhus, Denmark. But soon, thanks to the passion a time they invested in the craft, they worked their way up and now belong to top coffee roasters in Europe.
Overall amazing space, Sonny is now expanding into a creative space called Times. So, you will be able to enjoy your coffee in a company of even more people, in a community space also serving as Sonny's experimental kitchen.
Even though a fairly new concept, Andersen & Maillard very quickly became one of the most popular spaces in a busy neighbourhood of Norrebro. With an open roastery right in the middle of the coffee shop and the same bakery concept, Andersen & Maillard is changing the transparency game for the gastro industry.
The professional approach towards customers is a reflection of how they value your appreciation of their constant love for coffee and commitment to the craft.

Their very own roasts are of a rich and sweet taste, and so perfect, that they are literally worth putting on everything! Andersen & Maillard's renowned pastry chef Milton Abel creates heaven in a form of espresso glazed croissants.
