Opening at 7.30am, the café – which has a clientele ranging from school kids to pensioners – aims to serve the people of Ålesund and its visitors the very best coffee around, mixed with healthy foods, cakes and alcoholic beverages on the side. “The coffee is our baby,” says co-owner Anette Finnes, who opened the café with Linn Therese Briksdal Dimmen in March 2015. Having worked together in a café in a shopping centre, the pair decided it was time to create something they were passionate about, which is how Racoon Coffee & More was born. “A lot of people in town already knew who we were because of our previous job, so they’ve all been immensely supportive,” explains Finnes.
