vide hus coffee shop

My husband is an avid coffee enthusiast and not just in the sense that he thinks it’s cool to use an AeroPress, but he loves the entire experience surrounding his cup of joe.  Ask to meet him for coffee and he is likely to show you some obscure cafe that you have never heard of but is certain to rock your coffee loving world.   Collages10

Even before our kids could crawl or walk, he started taking them on cafe dates.  They love grabbing a hot chocolate and a cookie and he gets to try every different kind of coffee possible while chatting and getting to know them better.


His most recent discovery was this super hip coffee shop called Det Vide Hus in Copenhagen’s city center.  Facing Rosenborg Slot (or the King’s Gardens), it is ideally located both  because of it’s view and it’s convenience access to those downtown.  Not only do they brew Coffee Collective coffees, but you can have your choice between freshly brewed organic, fair trade coffee in an Aeropress, in a French Press, or in a wide variety of expresso drinks.

And the vibe is just plain cool because all of the artwork is created by local artists.

What kinds of coffee shops do you guys like to visit?  I’m not a coffee drinker (gasp!  I know!) so I am always appreciative when I have options for smoothies and teas!
