The sweet smell of coffee

Have you been wondering what this sweet smell in the streets of Helsinki during the last days was?


It is the smell of roasted coffee. The Kulta Katriina coffee is roasted pretty close to the center in their roasting facility near Pasila. Depending on the wind the smell is carried pretty far and can even still be smelled a few kilometers away.

That's pretty good advertisement actually for their coffee, I would say.


  1. I love the smell of that coffee factory - I used to live in Aleksis Kiven Katu and often got the lovely smell coming through the opened balcony doors. I definitely miss this.

    1. I love it, too. And lately it has been in the center quite often. Really nice!
