Do you think passionate coffee lovers would spend a few thousand dollars just to taste one of the most recommended coffees somewhere in Norway? A coffee pilgrimage, may be? No, certainly not. Nevertheless, there is no harm in bookmarking such Aromatic Coffee Shops across the world that serves the most aromatic coffees. Who knows when you are going to travel to Rome, Italy, where, you can pay a visit to Sant’Eustachio Il Caffè.
I am an ardent coffee lover so much so that even as I am composing this blog post about the most in the world, I recall different the taste of different flavored coffees I tasted in my life. Some of these Aromatic Coffee Shops are said to roast their own coffee beans. I guess some coffee shop owners even have their own coffee estates. They certainly know all about coffee grades, roasting, and brewing coffee with a delicious aroma.
As I was doing my research to find the best Aromatic Coffee Shops in the world, I was genuinely surprised to find one in as far as Norway where coffee is certainly not grown.
Well, anyway, here are my findings for the Aromatic Coffee Shops that serve exotic, aromatic coffee. I actually interviewed a friend of mine who is also a big coffee lover to assist me in compiling this list of Aromatic Coffee Shops that attract the best of coffee lovers. She is so good at identifying various coffees even before sipping. One whiff of inhaling and she can say for sure whether it is an Indian coffee or Columbian coffee.
Here are the top Aromatic Coffee Shops on the earth.
1. Italian Aromatic Coffee Shops: Sant’Eustachio Il Caffè in Rome, Italy
If you happen to copy and paste the name of this Italian coffee shop in Google for finding more details, you will read that they roast their coffee beans and use special water from an ancient aqueduct. (source: Wikipedia)
Address: Piazza di San Eustachio, 82, 00186 Roma, Phone: +39 06 6880 2048
From a website that is excruciatingly slow, I gathered that Sant’Eustachio uses only Arabica Coffee which is not to be confused with Arabian coffee. Arabica coffee is a type of coffee that tends to be slightly sweeter. The other type of coffee is ‘Robusta’. Coming back to the Sant’Eustachio, they say they procure their coffee from Guatemala and Brazil. I was taken aback when I read that some of their coffee supplies are imported from the Galapagos Islands and Santa Elena Island.
Their coffee success is attributed to their relentless research on growing, roasting and brewing of coffee beans. Oh, I should add the water component also they use, to brew their aromatic Arabica coffee.
If and when you visit this Italian coffee outlet in Rome, order straightaway a cup of espresso without any second thought. You are sure to ask for a second mug.
2. Aromatic Coffee Shops List: Tim Wendelboe in Oslo, Norway
Address: Grüners gate 1, 0552 Oslo, Norway
Phone: +47 944 31 627
Yeah, this is the Norwegian coffee shop I told you about at the beginning of this blog post. As you near the coffee shop, you will start inhaling the aroma of Barista Coffee (Originally an Indian coffee chain). The owner of this Norway coffee shop knows how to roast the coffee beans and he seems to believe that his success story.
His website is devoid of any good images of coffee, similar to the Roman coffee that appears before this.
3. Aromatic Coffee Shops: 49th Parallel in Vancouver, Canada
When my friend told me about this odd coffee shop name in Vancouver, I asked her if they sell fruity coffee, she said ‘no’. Such fruit flavored coffees are famous only Indonesia only. The regulars of 49th Parallel coffee shop in Vancouver, Canada have become very loyal to the finest aromatic coffee that they get. It seems the coffee shop is able to maintain the flavor and taste of their coffee for long years and that is their success. One can buy any one of their coffee accessories that include a coffee maker, paper filter to make manual filter coffee, and immersion dipper made of porcelain.
Again, there is no image of actual coffee on their website (https://49thcoffee.com/ ).
Address: 2198 W 4th Ave, Vancouver, BC V6K 1N7, Canada Phone: +1 604-420-4901
4. Aromatic Coffee Shops: Heart Coffee Roasters in Portland, Oregon.
Address: 923 SE Hawthorne, Portland OR 97214 | 503-235-8276
Ah, finally, an appropriate image of real coffee drink and not coffee beans packet. It seems the Portlanders know how to roast coffee beans perfectly to churn out heavenly aromatic coffees as I found out more than one coffee shop to write about. However, I am sticking with this one who procures their coffee beans mostly from South America (maybe from Brazil), Central America and of course Africa. I once tasted a mug of African coffee and I did not like it. It was too thin for my taste.
Next, my friend explained her coffee tour experience in Hong Kong. I made her stop as I have a similar experience of drinking coffee from various coffee shops in Hong Kong. No, the Hong Kong coffee is not my cup of coffee.
5. Aromatic Coffee Shops in Finland, Ekberg Café in Helsinki
Coffee in Finland? From where do they procure their raw coffee beans? No answer to my question but I was more than surprised that this particular aromatic coffee shop in Finland has been in existence since 1852!
Address: Bulevardi 9, 00120 Helsinki, Finland
Phone: +358 9 6811860 https://www.ekberg.fi/
If a coffee shop has been surviving for about 166 years in this part of Europe, then, it is certainly a history. The Finnish people are big consumers of coffee, drinking as many as 10 mugs a day.
After studying their website, I came to the conclusion that the reason for their long-standing is their bakery that makes some of the softest cakes and pastries in the world.
