If you're looking for tasty cup of java, hot chocolate, or an espresso in Helsinki, this is the place. The shop offers gourmet Italian coffees that are robust and flavourful. Not many tables here, so if you wanted to relax with a cup of joe, you may not find a place to sit. The service was friendly and professional, and... More

There are a few Kaffecentralen shops in Helsinki. Must say they have such a good blend that I have never tasted better. The owners are awarded Baristas in europe so they know what they are brewing. Worth to try!

We often buy our coffee beans from this place, and several times per week stop for a coffee. The place on Eerikinkatu is more a shop than a cafe, but there are a few seats where you can enjoy your coffee. We usually drink cappuccinos or espressos, and they have never let us down. The staff is friendly and they... More

The place for coffee aficionados in Helsinki. Very professional and helpful staff, great selection of beans and espresso machines including all accessories you can imagine. Besides great coffee one must hail the prices (espresso 1€!). Only minus is the slow service.

This is a pro-coffee-shop with soooo tasty and affordable, all kinds, of coffees to try. You can tell them what kind of coffee you like and they'll make you just a perfect one. If you have a "keep-cup" you'll get discount - a small step to a more ecological world. I've had the regular latte and the latte freddo -... More

Professional service producing quality coffee. Great location They are selling lots of Coffee equipment as well. Some of the coffee can be a little bit on the sweet side, so taste it before you add any sugar. We will return next time in town :-)

Its pretty difficult to find good hot chocolate in Helsinki, they are usually too liquid not creamy enough, and more like mil woth a chocolate syrup. Kaffecentralen has just the perfect, best hot chocolate: creamy, hot and sweet enough, at good price. Try also their "spoon version", its hot chocolate served on a large tea cup and thick like a...
