Coffee On A Bike…In An Airport
Those brilliant Finns. The Helsinki airport is now offering gate-serviced coffee…by bike. So, instead of worrying about dragging your luggage through the terminal (“Unnattended luggage will be exploded by a robocop type mechanism…thank you.”) just to get a cup of liquid nap, Gate Roastery brings it to you, with a bike…because we all know how long those walks can be from A1 to G14. Think about it, you’re speed walking to the connecting flight when you see some poor excuse for coffee (all offense intended Dunkin Donuts) staring you down, forcing you to calculate a wait in line for some liquid tar against the wait in line to get on the plane safely…but now…no stopping necessary! Get to your gate, wait in line, and listen for the distinct *ding ding* of the bike bell as the high-quality coffee comes rolling to you! With this amenity, I’d consider flying…anywhere. Read the full article on Gate Roastery here.
As a part of the TravelLab project, Finavia is bringing this invigorating Finnish ritual to Helsinki Airport passengers, directly to the gate. In Gate Roastery, Finnish quality coffee from Helsinki-based Kaffa Roastery is brought to passengers waiting for their flights at the gate area. They will have the opportunity to buy a freshly brewed cup or a souvenir of Kaffa products to be enjoyed at home.
Our TravelLab technicians will be zooming around the airport with sleek and classy Finnish-made Pelago bicycles.
