Competition: Your Favourite Coffee Memory

Competition: Your Favourite Coffee Memory

By Chris Kolbu

Through the last year, we have been writing about Nordic coffee culture. Today, we ask you. Share your own experiences and opinion and you could win a Wilfa SVART Manuell and Malt grinder! This contest finished on the 1st of May, 2012.

All cultures are expressions of the people who share it. While larger, more general lines can be drawn from viewing the whole, the texture and richness of a culture is at its fullest in small groups and individuals. With you, and everyone around you.

We want to explore the individual perspective, and are excited to invite you all to share with us your favourite coffee memory and your view of what Nordic coffee culture is. This could be in the form of a photograph or a written text.


The SVART Manuell is an exciting coffee brewer from Wilfa that takes an approach to coffee brewing that is simultaneously new and traditional. Read more about it here!

The Malt grinder is one of the best, most affordable grinders for black coffee on the market, sporting conical, easy to clean burrs that grind the coffee very evenly. Read more about the importance of freshly ground coffee here.

Our first prize winner will receive both(!) the SVART Manuell and the Malt grinder; the runner-up will receive the SVART Manuell; 3rd through 5th place will receive the Malt grinder!
