Coffee Research Project

Like To Help With Coffee Research?
Live Near Copenhagen?
Then We Would Love To Hear From You

One of our barista’s is currently undertaking his Master thesis with the University of Copenhagen. It is in the field of Sensory Science, and what is even more interesting is that coffee is the subject of the research.

The Coffee Collective is delighted to be supporting this research and we would love your help. If you happen to live near Copenhagen and would be able to complete a quick online survey please click the link below.

The survey asks a few questions relating to coffee consumption and takes less than 5 minutes to complete. Please complete it by November 12th .

In November and December a selection of respondents will be invited to a tasting session at our Godthåbsvej roastery as part of the thesis.

Here is the link.

We hope you'll participate!

Last roast of Esmeralda Special !

On Tuesday we'll roast the last batch of the 2012 auction lot Esmeralda Special.

If you place your order before Tuesday 12 o'clock on our webshop we'll ship it straight from the roaster to you.

We'll miss this extraordinary coffee until next auction in spring 2013. Fortunately we're expecting some other coffees to come in.

Black Coffee Brew Down

After a series of very succesfull Latte Art Throwdowns we know turn out heads to the stuff that really excites us: Black Coffee !

So we're happy to welcome you all to the first


1. price: Wilfa MALT coffee grinder

Wednesday October 10th 2012 - 19.00 hours.


There will be two rounds in the competition:

1st round you bring your own coffee and equipment.
2nd round you'll get a coffee that you get to cup before the competition (- and it's not one of ours) which you choose a brew profile for. So come early if you want to get acquainted with it.

We have Espro Press, Aeropress and Harios V60s available, but if you want to brew on something else just bring it yourself.

We look forward to some seriously smashing black coffee!
