Kahvila Sävy

Here at Inside Out Helsinki, we love a good coffee ! And Finns are usually winners at combining great beans and a cosy atmosphere! It doesn't come as a surprise that we warmly recommend Kahvila Sävy as a must go-to coffee place in Helsinki. Its delicious coffee choice, offering a changing variety of coffees from high quality roasters all across Europe, and great nibble offers (from sandwiches to yummy pastries), and its warm decor, ambiance and feel, is a perfect place to snuggle while waiting for Spring to arrive! We also love their nice and talented baristas as well!

=> Good to know : Finns are the world's biggest coffee drinkers :) !

=> A little background : Originally Kahvila Sävy was founded by Kaisa and Mikko Sarén. A few years ago, Sanni Sointula and her partner Aleksi found out that Kaisa and Mikko were going to sell Sävy. As they knew Sävy's excellent reputation as a one of Helsinki's top coffee shop, they didn't hesitate to seize that opportunity. Aleksi already had an existing enthusiasm about coffee as he worked as a barista. And now coffee is nearly completely ruling Sanni and Aleksi's world :) .  

The speciality/quality coffee scene is small, vibrant and very supportive community in Helsinki. Interestingly, the overall coffee shop culture in Finland is relatively small as Finns mostly like to drink their coffee at home. So, how can small amazing coffee shops like Sävy compete with big coffee chains? According to co-owner Sanni: 
"Starbucks for example is doing a great job by tempting people to drink their coffees in a coffee bar. Of course we can't compete with their kind of marketing budget, but we believe that at some point people will also start to appreciate the quality of coffee, and not just a bunch of chocolate-vanilla-mint-pumpkin-flavored liquids and will understand the sustainable point of view of coffee as well. The more people's awareness grows about quality coffee, the better options small quality businesses like Kahvila Sävy have."

Kahvila Sävy's simple mission is to constantly improve their coffee all the time, and it has a few amazing changing aeropress options available. But if you want espresso based with milk, Inside Out Helsinki would definitely recommend Sävy's silky and creamy cappuccino and for the sweet-tooth, a home-made cookie on the side ;) .  

=> Good to know: From now on, Kahvila Sävy is starting a co-operation with Helsinki-based Good Life Coffee Roastery. The close collaboration with the coffee roastery enables the shop to have an influence not only on coffees they are serving but also on staff training and constant improvement of their coffee.
