The Coffee Collective is a specialty coffee micro roastery with six coffee shops in Copenhagen and a web shop for our international community.
We explore and unfold exceptional coffee experiences, in a manner that gives better living conditions to coffee farmers across the globe.
In our coffee shops, we aim to set new standards for coffee brewing and serving, and to keep exploring potentials in coffee all the way from seed to cup.
We supply a growing number of wholesale partners ranging from independent coffee shops to Michelin-star restaurants with fresh roasted, seasonal and transparently traded coffee.
Coffee quality is brought about in three links: Farmer, roaster and barista. We work hard to ensure that these three links collaborate, working towards the collective goal: Exploring coffee’s taste potential.
As coffee is grown far from Denmark, it is important for us to work with transparency. With our Direct Trade model, we lay out a distinct set of criteria for our trading with the producers. Direct Trade is based on the notion that the better the quality we get, the better price we are able to pay, and the better quality we will have again the following year and so forth.
Ultimately, our dream is for a coffee farmer in Kenya to obtain the same status and living conditions as a wine grower in France.

For our latests coffee shop we aimed to make the most sustainable coffee shop possible in the building process. We have used new and old elements that are characteristic of Danish craftsmanship to create a space for tranquility and extraordinary coffee experiences; the floor is paved with 100 year old hand-stroked stones and a newly designed bar invites conversation and good times.
For brewing we went with the Modbar AV w. built-in scales, as our desire was to create a very open and inviting bar, that facilitates conversations and doesn’t hide the baristas. A large mirrored bar reflect the old floor, making the Modbar look like it’s floating in thin air.
