The coffee setup at Ø12 is something we are very proud of. We have gone completely uncompromised to the task and are the only people in Denmark who own a KB90 3 group from La Marzocco. La Marzocco is undoubtedly the leading manufacturer of espresso machines on the market in the world, and their KB90 released in May 2019 sets wild standards for what a coffee machine can do. But the equipment is only a small part of what makes a good cup of coffee.
For 3 years, founder Kasper Cordes and Enete Overgaard lived in London, and came daily to the extremely popular and legendary Ozone Coffee in East London. When we had to choose beans for Ø12, the mantra was that we would find something reminiscent of Ozone’s espresso beans.
We wanted a coffee that had a bit more edge than the usual very lightly roasted coffee you typically see at the best coffee shops in Copenhagen. The task seemed impossible until it hit us, we could just try to go directly to Ozone and hear if they were interested in a collaboration. After a few flights back and forth, and after we had explained about our level of ambition to quality in coffee brewing, we made an agreement to brew what we believe is the best coffee in the world in Copenhagen.
