The quality and taste of coffee is perhaps one of the most important things when it comes to a quality cafe. La Torrefazione on Aleksanterinkatu, founded in the late 2000s, is the answer to this idea. The café, located in an idyllic location, is a nice refreshment in the street view of Helsinki. Its delicious coffees and pastries bring joy to everyday life. And best of all its customer service is really excellent.
It all started with a desire to make good and quality coffee
The first La Torrefazione was founded in September 2009 on Aleksanterinkatu. The founders of the café are brothers Jens and Svante Hampf. They wanted to bring a café to Finland, where they invest in the quality and good taste of coffee. The idea was originally started by Svante Hampf and Benjamin Andberg. Later, they wanted to focus more on coffee roasting, and with that, they established the Kaffa Roastery coffee roastery near the Red Mountain in Helsinki. Jens Hampf continued to pull the cafe. In addition to them, Janina Lindgren, the main bar Roman Kolpatski and chef Jon Linnavuori were opening the first café and developing the whole concept. The close-knit team focused on personal service, good food and quality coffee. This led to the rapid growth of the loyal customer base. Passionate coffee enthusiasts also quickly found the cafe.
Good coffee, better mood: La Torrefazione
There are several La Torrefazione cafés all over Finland. Perhaps its most famous location is the café on Aleksanterinkatu. As you enter the café, personal stairs open up in front of you, leading you into an atmospheric café space. A cheerful customer service representative welcomes you and customers seem to feel comfortable with each other. There are really tasty-looking pastries, pies, cakes, macarons and even Runeberg tarts on offer. Coffee is at the heart of La Torrefazione and will not disappoint. Coffee is available, fully customized to your taste. It’s a pleasure to watch from the sidelines as the barista makes coffee as if it were dancing.
The quality of the coffee smells as well as tastes. No wonder, then, that La Torrefazione is at the forefront of success in the café industry. The scenery from the window of La Torrefazione to the streets of central Helsinki will calm your mind and give new strength in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. One could easily imagine being in a fine Italian cafe in Italy watching Milan’s exemplary going. A visit to La Torrefazione is a truly pleasant experience. It would easily make sense to stay even longer. Fortunately, in La Torrefazione this can be done.
We recommend La Torrefazione to all true coffee lovers as well as coffee lovers.
