coffee space at pier 5 hotel

A good cup of coffee is pure joy – and that’s what we want to give our guests when they stay at our hotel. In our lounge area you will find an exclusive coffee space where you can choose between four different coffee beans. They all have three things in common: they are rich in quality, flavourful and sustainable. 

You can look forward to a fantastic cup of coffee from the popular Peter Larsen, with whom we collaborate in all our hotels.

we have a coffee farmer in the family

take your coffee break in Guatemala

We have a coffee farmer in the Bühlmann family. Maria Jóse Fernandez de Bühlmanns and her father Pedro Lopez run the coffee farm La Serrania, located in the highlands of Guatemala. Here, they harvest aromatic arabica coffee beans, which are sent across the Atlantic and subsequently roasted in Aalborg with the help of Bentax.

You can taste the quality and sustainable beans in our coffee space at Pier 5 Hotel. In the video below, you can learn much more about the beans and the process behind them.

5.7 tonnes of coffee

That’s how much coffee our guests drink in a year

we utilise the full potential of our coffee

Here in the Bühlmann family, we love coffee, and therefore we also want to help utilise the full potential of the coffee. When you brew a cup of coffee today, you utilise less than 1% of the coffee’s nutritional value. We think this could be done much better, which is why we have chosen to be part of the Circular Coffee Community

By being part of CCC, we work to bring farmers, companies and consumers together in a community with a focus on realising the full potential of the coffee plant and eliminating all unnecessary waste. We believe that small sustainable steps can make a huge difference in the long run. 

Below you can read more about our sustainability policy. 


Once you have poured yourself your favorite coffee, you can settle down in our modern and newly renovated surroundings. Sink into a soft armchair and enjoy the view of the fjord, sit by the fireplace and get warm or take a walk past our shuffleboard.
