"Jacobsen & Svart is the best coffee bar in Trondheim. A small space with a modern Scandinavian interior on the Bakklandet side of the river Nidelva. Head barista Tony Jacobsen has roasted coffee since 2012, competed as a barista for years, and opened his own store in 2015. He's usually found behind the bar himself."
Nichole Baker aka Global village Nichole have been travelling around the world. She made coffee to Turkish carpet dealers, refugees, on the highest mountain tops and under the sea (while diving).
It's a Norwegian kind of thing. "Ta en kaffe". Which means meeting up. In this small, unpretentious meetings people make big decisions, small decisions, fall in love, get to know each other, catch up, take a break, smalltalk, joke about things, just sit in silence and many other things. To share a moment together is for me a kind of Japaneese mindset, especially if the product that you gather around (coffee) is perfected and brewed carefully.
Now. That's the essence of Jacobsen & Svart. That is, the very essence. Good people, great coffee. So that's what get my days going. To perfect that moment.

Vi har vært så heldig å få tak i et begrenset opplag av håndlagede V60 filterbryggere fra Sykkel Ylva. Hver filterholder kommer i sitt helt eget eksemplar og er helt unik. De er laget i Oslo og støpt i former. Filterbryggeren har en finér støtte som er tilpasset bryggeren som du kan sette over koppen eller kannen du skal brygge i. Hver eneste eksemplar er pakket inn i et tøystkke som er forsiktig pakket for at du skal ta med. Det er noe wabi-sabi over disse bryggerene som er nøyaktig grunnen til at vi kjøpte de inn. Prisen er ikke avskrekkende heller, hvis man tenker på hvor flotte de er.
