Guide to the best coffee in Oslo

Norway is one of the world leaders in per capita coffee consumption, just behind Finland. Seven out of ten Norwegians drink coffee every day and it remains a very popular beverage. We had a wander around Oslo, to take a closer look at what this coffee capital has to offer.

Supreme Roastworks

Coffee bar, coffee equipment retailer and roastery. The coffee is the center of attention at Supreme, an intimate and informal coffee bar. Started life purely as a roastery and then opened a coffee bar in 2013. Barista and co-owner Odd-Steinar Tøllefsen has won the Norwegian Championships in the Brewers Cup category (black coffee), three years in a row (2014-2016). Tøllefsen also won the 2015 World Brewers Cup at the Nordic World of Coffee in Gothenburg, Sweden. Frequented by quality conscious, young, urbane hipsters, cyclists and morning espresso lovers.

Tim Wendelboe

Roastery, bar, coffee school, resource center, training center for coffee… a cycling cornucopia. Tim Wendelboe has an impressive CV and is the winner of Nordic Roaster in both 2015 and 2016. The coffee bar has become a show room for all the different coffees you can buy here. Offers coffee tasting sessions for Nkr 150 where two people share four types of coffee (200 ml each) with a presentation of the coffees.

Java & Mocca

Robert W. Thoresen worked as an architect in San Francisco and witnessed the explosion of the modern coffee culture. In 1997 he opened Java on St. Hanshaugen and in 2000 Mocca in Briskeby. They have led the US wave of coffee bars in Norway. The combination of coffee bar and roastery was unique. In 2005, the roastery was spun off into a separate company, Kaffa. Here you can enjoy a coffee brewed by your favorite method, V60, Aeropress, Chemex, Siphon or however you prefer.

Cykelkaféer

Peloton

Oslo went from zero to three cycle cafes in next to no time. Peloton, which in cycle-speak means the main pack, opened its doors in 2015 and has become a cyclist magnet, with coffee bar, big screens showing races, repair shop and some of the best pizza in Oslo. You can order the same coffee that Chris Froome and Team Sky drink.
