Coffee

Someone recently told me that I take way too many photos of coffee. And when I looked through the photos on my computer, I did have lots of pictures of the black drink...
 The first photo I have with coffee is this one from early 2009 when Chris and I were obsessed with Ricco's in Istedgade. We often took it to go and wandered around the Meatpacking District talking about boys and plans for the future. That was before journalism school, and back when Chris had just started in architecture school. There was a Swedish guy working at Ricco's and he made the best ice coffee in town.
I started drinking coffee in high school when I couldn't stay awake during classes. At first it was mainly to keep me awake, but I discovered I liked it. I only liked mocha in the beginning, but quickly moved on to the milky kind.
There is the summery coffee at the grandparents.
In Berlin, I discovered the coffee there tastes very different. Their milk is more rich making the coffee flavour more distinct. Boy, I loved making French press coffee there with 1,5% milk....! Unfortunately, Berliners are obsessed with the milk foam, which is definitely not my thing.
There's the museum coffee.... Here in the Stasi museum in Berlin
There's the ice coffee; a beloved ritual that marks the beginning of summer (this one was taken in March 2011 when I was convinced the summer had come to Berlin)
There's happy coffee - not that kind - in Berlin (at Kauf Dich Glücklich)
There's rainy-Copenhagen-coffee
There's washing-time-coffee
There's Sunday-in-bed-coffee
There's London coffee (flat white, of course)
 There's work coffee (definitely not my favourite!)
 There's morning-at-a-café-coffee
 There's morning coffee
 There's homemade ice coffee
 There's out-with-friends-coffee
There's hungover coffee in bed. And my favourite? It's the double latte from Coffee Collective. I'll miss it so when I move to Aarhus in a few weeks...!

Jeg elsker dine kaffe-indlæg, dem kan der slet ikke være for mange af!
Har du allerede et favorit-kaffested i Århus?
Jeg tager til København i juli og regner med at drikke en masse kaffe. Glæder mig til et gensyn med coffeecollective. Er der andre gode steder på Nørrebro, du kan anbefale?

Totally! It would become such a project and make me drink even more coffee. I think the world is not ready for that just yet :)

Åh, tak :)
Ja, det har jeg faktisk - jeg har et meget svagt punkt for Lynfabrikken. Men det er ligeså meget på grund af stedet. Kan du anbefale nogle, nu hvor jeg snart flytter derover igen?
Hmm... Coffee Collective er virkelig min yndlings, men der er også god kaffe hos Mokkariet på Jagtvej, hos Ricco's (som dog ofte er lidt for kraftigt ristet) og hos Risteriet på Studiestræde i Indre By.

Tak for tips!
Jeg kan ret godt li' kaffen på Drudenfuss, selvom jeg godt kan bli' lidt træt af die überseje tjenere. Og Siegfreds (både bogbutik-cafeen og den ved banegården) og altura i Graven. Ellers er der åbnet en ny kaffebar på Vestergade, street coffe, der skulle være ret go'. Lynfabrikken er selvfølgelig altid et hit, specielt kaffe+cockie+tagterasse :)

Selv tak - jeg kender ikke Street Coffee, men ellers er det nogle rigtig gode bud, du nævner. Fik mig lige til at huske gode ting ved Århus - vigtigt!
Håber, du nyder København :)
