Viciul numarul 1 al norvegienilor este cafeaua. Toata ziua sunt cu cana de cafea dupa ei, cred ca unii beau cate 4-5 cafele pe zi. Cafeaua norvegiana e foarte slaba ca un fel de ceai negru mai tare 🙂 nu se compara cu cafeaua pe care o face tata acasa. Eu m-am apucat de baut cafea mai serios anul trecut prin vara, nu prea imi place mie gustul de cafea, dar imi pun lapte in ea si asa parca e mai “baubila” :).

Avand in vedere ce mult le place norvegienilor cafeaua mereu raman surprinsa ca Starbucks nu este deja prezent in fiecare oras norvegian. Strabucks  o sa deschida abia in 2012 prima cafenea in aeroportul din Oslo. Sper sa se extinda si la Bergen cat de curand.

In lipsa Starbucks-ului sunt cateva cafenele/brutarii unde se poate servi o cafea buna, un sandvici sau o prajitura. Printre ele se afla si Baker Brun unde am fost si noi sambata dupa hamburgerul grozav de la Inside. Baker Brun este un loc special si cu traditie al norvegienilor, fiind infiintat de Christopher Brun in 1893. In prezent sunt 12 locuri prin Bergen unde puteti gasi produsele Baker Brun, noi vizitand cel din Lagunen.

Baker Brun au in prezent multe produse de brutarie, proaspete, gustoase si din ingrediente de buna calitate: paini si chifle de toate felurile, cu tot felul de seminte si din faini diferite, prajituri bazate pe aluaturi dospite, diferite torturi pentru toate ocaziile, sucuri naturale proaspat stoarse, sandviciuri gata preparate, etc.

Noi am servit un cappucino si un caffe latte alaturi de o prajiturica cu nuca+migdale maruntite. Pentru acasa ne-am cumparat o punga cu bucati sparte de caramel cu nuci si migdale. Ne-am simtit foarte bine la ei, cafeaua si prajiturica fiind foarte bune si proaspete, astfel ca ne-am incheiat seara intr-un mod foarte frumos, placut si relaxant.

Concluzie: Orice plimbare prin Bergen trebuie sa treaca si pe la Baker Brun, macar pentru mirosul de paine proaspat coapta si de cafea proaspat macinata. Sunt sigura ca va fi greu sa va abtineti sa nu le si incercati pe bune. Din partea mea primeste 5 flori de crin.English version

The number one vice of the Norwegian is coffee. They are all day with a coffee cup in their hands, I guess some of them drink up to 4-5 cups a day. The Norwegian coffee is very light, sort of a stronger black tea :), it does not compare with the coffee my father prepares at home. I started drinking coffee on a more regular basis about last year, in the summer, I do not enjoy the taste very much, but I take it with milk and so it is a bit more “drinkable” :).

Considering how much do the Norwegian enjoy coffee, I am constantly surprised that Starbucks is not already present in every Norwegian city. Starbucks will actually open their first store right outside the Oslo airport in 2012. I hope they will extend to Bergen soon.

While Starbucks is missing, there are a few coffee-shops/bakeries where you can enjoy a good coffee, a sandwich or a cookie. Among these there is also Baker Brun, where we went on Saturday after the great hamburger at Inside. Baker Brun is a special place with tradition for the Norwegian, being established in 1893 by Christopher Brun. Presently, there are 12 places around Bergen where you can find the Baker Brun products, and we went to the one at Lagunen.

Baker Brun have several bakery products, fresh and tasty made off high quality ingredients: breads and rolls of all kinds, with all sorts of seeds and different flour types, cookies based on yeast doughs, different cakes for all occasions, freshly squeezed natural juices, ready-made sandwiches, etc.

We chose to serve a cappuccino, a caffe latte and a walnut-almond cookie. We also bought to take home a small bag with cracked nuts, almonds and seeds caramel brittle. We enjoyed the time there, the coffee and cookie being fresh and very good, so we closed the afternoon in a very nice, pleasant and relaxing manner.

Conclusion: Any stroll through Bergen should also have Baker Brun as a stop, at least for smell of freshly baked bread or freshly ground coffee. I am sure that it would be difficult to refrain from really trying them. From me Baker Brun gets 5 lilies!
