We just returned from a long weekend in Stavanger, on the southwest coast of Norway.And before I go any further, I have to say thanks to our friends for letting us stay in their home while they were traveling!
I wasn’t having a lot of luck when I did my usual pre-travel coffee research. I did read a bit about a few shops, but nothing much. So I called out to Facebook friends, and got some great advice.
The best tip was to try Coffeeberry. And we were so glad we did!
Coffeeberry has two locations, in Sandnes and Stavanger. We visited their downtown Stavanger cafe.
The decor is done well. Brightly colored walls on each end reflect the whimsical nature of both Coffeeberry’s logo and their packaging. One end of the shop is painted a bright turquoise, while the other boasts Coffeeberry’s signature bright red.
The furniture is retro and fun. A plethora of teakwood furniture fills the shop, and the walls are adorned with what I would consider throwback Norwegian art. Maybe the kind of work you’d see on the walls of your family’s hytta/cabin.
As you step in, the focal point is the copper coffee bar. And their wall menus are a playful touch, reminiscent of a diner or sandwich shop from years ago.
We visited Coffeeberry twice over the weekend. On the first day, we tried a hand brewed Colombian coffee, and an espresso. Both were excellent. While there we picked up a couple of bags of beans, from Colombia and Ethiopia.
On our second visit, we had their daily coffee. This particular day was from Burundi, and was another top-notch choice. We also ordered a con panna (our current go-to specialty drink), a shakerato and a caramel ice latte.
Everything we tried was delicious.
Coffeeberry also offers a selection of pastries, salads, sodas, and juices.
For those of you with small children, you’ll be happy to know that they have a kids’ corner with some toys to occupy your little one while you enjoy your drink.
Coffeeberry: another superb offering from the world of Nordic coffee. Definitely worth a stop-in!
