Happiness. That’s what Talor & Jørgen sell. Happiness in the form of doughnuts and coffee.
It’s impossible to walk past their shopfront and not be drawn to the window. Fat, golden, sticky doughnuts in a range of flavours tempt from behind the glass. Their filled doughnuts are not your standard jam-ball with one lonely squirt of goo – I once had a lemon curd-filled doughnut stuffed with so much citrusy goodness, I could literally drink from it.
Inside it’s an explosion of colour: brews and doughnuts served in Oslo’s most instagrammable packaging, neon-lit sprinkles on the wall, Talor’s pink hair (or blue, or green…). There’s also a gorgeous green roasting machine where Talor & Jørgen roast all their own coffees on site.
Gloss aside, there’s real substance to Talor & Jørgen’s business ethos. Instead of a full menu, the team will ask how you like your coffee and expertly make it to taste. ‘Looking to buy some beans? How do you brew at home? Okay, you should definitely try these.’ Sometimes they sell out of doughnuts toward the end of the day, because they’re all handmade, fresh every day, by staff who get treated like decent human beings — you know, with proper pay and breaks (in hospitality? Amazing!)
On social media they’re honest, refreshing and community-minded, with daily Insta stories and a weekly YouTube vlog.
You can also order their coffee varieties online, or subscribe for regular deliveries to your door.
