Coffee and Cafes in Linköping

Posted in: General on 20 January, 2020 by Sebastian

Coming from Melbourne, which I and many others regard as the coffee capital of the world, I have high standards when it comes to a good cup of coffee so you can imagine my dismay when I was greeted with the concept of bryggcafe (filtered coffee). Most swedes like to drink normal filtered coffee both at home and at cafes because it is easy to make at home and in cafes, you get free refills.

One can still purchase a latte, cappuccino, flat-white etc. at cafes BUT, and perhaps I am just being bias, they do not compare to a Melbourne coffee. It has been a difficult 7 months without having had a good extra shot latte but I do admit, I have started to enjoy a cup or two of ‘bryggcafe’, especially at the local cafes.

In Linköping there are great places to enjoy a fika. There are many hidden cafes that I would not have found if it were not for friends telling me about them. For example, Babettes and Simon’s Roastery & Bakery (pictures below). I have made a habit of going to these places to study, I can spend hours there refilling my cup with filtered coffee and enjoying a freshly baked cinnamon bun (kanel bulle). I see many other students doing this too whether it is at one of the aforementioned cafes or the big Swedish coffee chain, Espresso House. It is a really good idea in the Winter to study at cafes because it encourages people to get out their house/apartment.

Thanks for reading,
