We’re thrilled to have opened our latest project, which we’ve been working on the past weeks. Right next to Nørreport Station at the beginning of Fiolstræde, on a square informally known as Æggetorvet, we have opened a small coffee shop inside an old telephone booth.

The corner of Nørre Voldgade and Fiolstræde

The Telephone booths were made between 1896 and 1910. The were designed by architect Fritz Koch to host the first telephones. A lady would run the booth and for 10 Danish Øre (1 Øre is 0.01 kroner) you could make a call. They were open from 7 in the morning to 11 in the evening. Ii 1896 four of them were put up and seven more followed. The booths were an excellent representation of the national-romantisism of that time, with it’s attention to crafted details.

They are hexagon shaped, nine meters tall with a copper roof and granit base. There’s wood carvings with different zodiac motives and at the very top a clock to show the time. Convenient as it’s located right next to Denmark’s busiest station, Nørreport.

We wanted to allow the beautiful architecture to come to life and match the colors and materials we used to that time, but in a way where it would mix well with a modern espresso machine and other equipment. We have worked closely with Logik & Co who did the carpentry and installations.

Inside we’ve managed to fit all our favorite equipment: A LM Linea PB, Mythos One, EK43 and our trusty Fetco batch brewer, so you can get a delicious filter coffee on the go.

Peter Ebdrup at the machine has contributed immensely with his eye for details

We look forward to welcoming you to this special location and serve you some delicious coffee.
