Traveling Coffee Monger Part 1

Copenhagen was our first stop on the coffee train that was our vacation. I did some research before we embarked on this journey so I knew that we had to go visit The Coffee Collective in Copehagen. If you don't know about this amazing shop here is what makes it one of the best shops I have ever been to:

Klaus Thomsen

Peter Dupont

In addition to have a great cast of founders it has an amazing staff of baristas who are happy to talk while they make you your espresso Beverage.
