It is so hard to find a cafe in Reykjavik that makes real coffee (not push button machines) and knows how to make it well. Kaffitar does it well. In addition they open earlier than any other cafe I found at 7am. They also offer...More

We have had some oat milk cortados today and they were totally delicious. That's the way coffee should be! Staff was really nice, all in all a pleasant visit.

Flights from the US always seem to land at KEF at such an early hour. Having landed at 5am, picked up a rental, we were in Reykjavik around 7am looking for some coffee/tea to prepare us for our long drive. To our surprise, not many...More

Grabbed some coffee early before a tour. It was pretty good and great because of how convenient it was to my bus stop 😂💜

As you go in, this looks a wee bit like a Starbucks, but don’t be fooled by that, they are trained baristas here. I had a flat white and it tasted perfect. Just the right amount of microfoam and a latte art rosette to finish...More

Was surprised to see that so few restaurants were open at 7, so we stopped here. I was pleasantly surprised by their selection of coffees and teas. I also had a breakfast sandwich which was yummy.

Popped in for a coffee on our first day in Reykjavik. Service was functional at best, not at all friendly and welcoming. We’d read a lot about how great the coffee is in Iceland, but this was bland with no discerning taste. The bathroom was...More

Very friendly and pleasant service! Our iced coffees and pastries were delicious! I wish I could remember what pastries we ordered but we ate them before I could take a photo!

Kaffitár is an Icelandic roasterie, specializing in importing, roasting and serving the finest Arabica coffee beans. Apart from the roasterie, the company owns seven coffee stores-espresso bars or cafés. They are located at our roastery in Reykjanesbaer, in Kringlan shopping mall, in Smáralind shopping mall, down town on Bankastraeti, in the Culture house at Hverfisgata, in the National museum and at Höfdatorg. We buy 75% of our coffee directly from the farmers, this we call "from farmer to cup" which means that our buyer, has visited the farm and selected the coffee. Lots of our direct coffee comes from Ricardo Rosales at Jesus Maria in Nicaragua. El Injerto in Gvatemala and Daterra in Brazil are also farms which we buy a lot from. Our experience is that we get better coffees and more consistent quality. Kaffitár also runs it's own Artisan bakery, Kruderí witch specializes in sourdough bread and delicious pastry.
