The Coffee Collective Roskilde opened yesterday.
At 7:30 we tore down the paper that have been covering the windows for the past couple of week and started welcoming people to our new coffee shop.
With 12 seats we’re keeping it small and personal. A 2-group La Marzocco GB5, Compak K-10 and a Mahlkönig VTA-6 (aka R2D2) is situated in the bar, with a beautiful white disk (thanks to Eva!) to serve the drinks on.
The espresso machine is situated with the side to the customers, so it’s – just like in Jægersborggade – easy to see what the barista is doing. And when we installed the lights in the La Marzocco we thought the big Mahlkönig grinder could use some light as well. So now we have a Mahlkönig with built-in light – and the cool part is that the light only comes on when you grind! It’s really neat and perhaps the only of it’s kind ;-)
Opening day was really cozy and a few journalists and photographers stopped by. Saturday one of the local papers had a full page about the store and local coffee hero Peter Dupont (he’s from around Roskilde originally) which a lot of people had already seen. We hope the word will spread fast and the people of Roskilde will come in and try our coffees.
