As strange as it sounds, Aalto University (ex. Helsinki University of Technology) can be considered as an incubator for Cafetoria, one of the oldest artisan Finnish coffee roasteries. Indeed, it was thanks to an International Master Program, that few students from different parts of the World arrived to Finland, including the Peruvian Ivan Ore, the founder of Cafetoria roastery.
Coming back to Otaniemi was then a confortable decision for us. We are excited to become part of the university community and be surrounded by young and brilliant minds. We are located in the Väre building which host the School of Arts, Design and Architecture. The interior design of our Café was inspired on the traditional artisan markets from Latin America and on traditional Vintage Cafés from Berlin. The Finnish concepts of minimalism and simplicity helped those two inspirational ideas to coexist.
Cafetoria Aalto portrays the same feeling and soul than our Töölö café, known by its delicious fresh roasted coffees and homemade delights. Here at Otaniemi, you will enjoy a friendly, relaxing and warm environment accordingly to our Nordic and Latin roots. Being Cafetoria roastery an independent coffee roastery, you will find in this place passionate Baristas ready to brew the best cup of coffee. Our selection of coffees includes also organic beans and directly traded coffees.
We have a kitchen!
Having a kitchen has been one of our dreams and now that we have this we plan to create fresh and tasty food which will incorporate a growing presence of Latin America flavours. Stay on the loop and follow us in our social media to get updated information about our food offering!
