If you’re strolling along the picturesque margins of the historic Lakes in Copenhagen, chances are you wouldn’t mind some coffee and a little bite afterwards. (Even a slow walk whilst enjoying the view must count as exercise, surely?)

One good spot to resolve these minor cravings is Estate Coffee, small coffee shop across the street from the Planetarium. Founded in 2000 by Søren Sylvest, Estate Coffee is a pioneer of the Danish specialty coffee scene, offering lighter roasts when that was still a wild concept.

Five years later, Sylvest launched Estate Coffee’s micro roastery, Copenhagen Roaster, with Claus Meyer. Fast forward another five years and their roast meister Mads Høgsted took home the 2010 Danish cup tasting championship crown.

But don’t forget the croissants, which are oh so delectable.

Today Estate Coffee has been taken over by two of their faithful regulars – Sasha and Erlinda – and been renamed Coffee First. Estate Coffee the café itself has relocated to Lyngby, a town near the Copenhagen city limits.

Despite the change of ownership, the café still retains all its charm and, yes, still serves excellent cuppas made with Estate Coffee beans.

Which goes to show: the more things change, the more they remain the same. In this case, the same is very good, very good indeed.

哥本哈根的咖啡館林立,早上時人手一杯咖啡是常見的事,
所以來到這童話般的城市,除了拜訪安徒生的小美人魚外,
愛喝咖啡的我也順道去泡了幾家咖啡館。
Estate Coffee 是丹麥精品咖啡館的先驅,
早在2000年Estate Coffee就已經開始供應以淺焙豆子泡製的咖啡,
接著在五年後成立了自家烘焙坊,更於2010年獲得杯測的冠軍。
所以無論你喜歡的是意式還是手沖,
在這裡都總能找到一杯滿足你喜好的咖啡。

在2015年時,Estate Coffee搬到了哥本哈根的郊外,
而原有的咖啡館則由兩位常客頂下,改名為Coffee First。
玫瑰即使改了名字,依然芬芳。
雖然換了名字,但是這裡依然供應著由Estate Coffee烘焙的豆子。
而從網上客人的評語看來,這裡的咖啡也還是一樣的好呢,
這對咖啡客來說才是最重要的,不是嗎?
