When someone names their coffee bar “a laboratory”, they probably know a lot about coffee. When I visited Kent Kaffe Laboratorium last week, I had great expectations. I had read a review about the place in the newspaper, and the review stated that this place treats coffee like so much more than “just coffee”.

Entering Kent Kaffe Laboratorum, it looks a lot like many other coffee bars in Copenhagen. However, when you read the menu, you realize that it’s not yet another café serving latte. The coffee at the menu have names like ‘V60’, Chemex, Syphon and Aeropress. We have to ask the barista, what all of these stuff are. What’s the difference between a V60 and a Syphon? It all turns out to be black coffee, prepared different ways. We decide on two different coffees, and watch the barista prepare it for us. 85 DKK later (yes, it’s a quite expensive coffee bar) we move outside to the small chairs, and taste our coffee. The coffee rocks. I will definitely come back, and next time someone asks me about where to find the best coffee in Copenhagen, I will tell them to try this place out.
