Topic: Coffee in Gothenburg, Sweden (6 msgs / 134 lines)
1) From: Yakster
Looks like I'm off to Europe starting next week.  First Milan, Italy again
and then Gothenburg, Sweden.  I'm looking forward to trying some good coffee
in Sweden, but if anyone has any recommendations, let me know.  In Milan,
the hotel had the best consistent espresso and was about the only place
really offering drip coffee (but why bother in Italy).
I just picked up a MyPressi Twist and have had a couple of days playing with
it.  So far it's exceeded my expectations with Intelligentsia's Black Cat
Classic and I plan to enjoy using it at work, though it's tempting to use it
at home as well.  I thought about bringing it with me to Europe, but don't
want to bother rustling up the gas canisters and don't see the point when
espresso is ubiquitous in Italy at least.  I will be taking it camping,
though and maybe even on car trips down to see my folks.  It's good that I'm
a straight espresso shot fan, but I did pick up some gaskets for the Bellman
stovetop steamer I picked up and with some practice should be able to make
better cappuccinos for the Wife.

Nope, just working with customers on trials of our equipment.  Nothing too
exciting except for the locations.  My first trip was to Plano, TX and I did
bring home-roast with me for that one.

Hi,
You are probably as good on google as I am, but this English article seems 
to be a good place to start:http://webnews.textalk.com/goteborg-daily/food-drink/spilling-the-beans-on-gothenburg-s-favourite-espresso-barsI am not at all active on the Danish sites discussing espresso, but I could 
ask around, we are so close that some coffee people must have been there.
You could try asking on www.toomuchcoffee.com. They have an old link on good 
coffee in  Sweden, but not something that is updated.

Claus,
Thanks for the link, I did some surfing with Google Translate of thehttp://www.riktigtkaffe.se/index.phpsite which mentioned these places, but
the article you reference gives a better review and lets me know more what
to expect.  I think I'll print it out for reference when I'm over there and
Da Matteo sounds like the one to hit if I'm only able to get into central
Gothenburg once.
I'll try and get some good pictures for a trip report once I return.

Sounds like fun - who would have guessed 10 years ago that the 
prospect of good coffee in Sweden is much better than in Milan! I had 
noticed a CoE buyer in Gothenberg but I dont really know them: Koppi
I would look up DaMatteo, but not sure if they are in Gothenburg as 
well, good coffee - tasted it in oslo.
I know Arvid Nordquist and have cupped with them a few times - they 
buy some nice coffee but I am always confused about what they do. 
Might be wholesale only...http://www.arvidnordquist.se/Tom
