  1. Can anybody point me in the direction of good coffee near Bristol Temple Meads or the county court? Thanks in advance!
  2. Just picked up via twitter what most of you in Bristol will already have known - that the fair city is going coffee festival in September. Probably well timed in a good spread across the year of UK festivals from London-Glasgow-Bristol-Manchester. Not a lot of detail yet unless anyone knows more. It should be a great showcase for the growing number of SW based roasters.
  3. Hello folks, as the title suggests, are there any good coffee shops located around (10 min walk) Bristol's bearpit or Cabot Circus? I work near there quite often so it would be good to spend some time in a decent coffee shop. Not really food bothered, more about the coffee. Any advice welcome! Thanks in advance.
  4. Following an impulsive upgrade, I now have rather rare sprung lever in need of a new loving home…. Judging by this thread….https://coffeeforums.co.uk/topic/39706-latest-member-of-quotthe-lever-clubquot-qm-veloce-after-24-hours/...I bought from Bella Barista in early 2018. This machine has been superb. It has taught me a huge amount and has been a joy to use. The Veloce has been a completely reliable and very low maintenance machine. No backflushing or real cleaning needed, just a piston grease every 6 months or so (5 minute job). This is a tank-fed machine with the 58mm Condor group (I understand the same as the Londinium machines). Performance in the cup is widely reviewed as being equal to the L1 (plenty of far more knowledgeable forum members have written reams in comparing the L1 to the Veloce). With a large 1.8 litre service boiler this is a very temperature stable thermosiphon machine - it will sit ticking over all day and maintain a consistent temperature. No need for a cooling flush like a HX machine: just load the PF and go. Heats up quickly - 30 mins and you are ready to go, or sooner if you flush. Nice and responsive toggles on the hot water and steam wand. Excellent steaming capability and equipped with a long no-burn wand, with great manipulation making steaming a breeze. Really quiet in use - the pump only fires up sporadically during each shot. I have fitted the Cafelat silicone piston seals and group gasket gasket. I regreased and inspected last month and will regrease for sale. Sale includes single-spout PF, single and double unbranded baskets, spare group gasket (non Cafelat) and upgraded 35 um shower screen. I am looking for £1,100 collected from Bristol, or can meet a short distance along the M5 / M4 if required. Unfortunately I will not post this machine. Any questions, please ask! Rob
  5. So I've been battling away for long enough now and am still rarely pulling a decent espresso. At least to my untrained eye everything looks as it should but they're all coming out aggressively sour or bitter. Is there anyone that offers training in the Bristol area? I'm starting to feel guilty for the sheer quantity of beans I'm destroying
  6. Hi all, my names Rory and I'm at university in Bristol, originally from south London (Sutton area). I've been on this forum for a little while now and always find the advice on here invaluable. I rarely do/buy anything related to coffee without consulting the forum first! I first got into coffee properly about 2/3 years ago, when I came to uni at Bristol. A friend of mine was very into it and took me around some of the local spots (Full Court press, Small St, Tradewind, Didn't you do well (closed)) and that's what started it really. I remember 'Didn't you do well' had a 3 group Slayer machine which was just a beauty. That was probably the best espresso I've had to be honest, real shame it shut down - but the guy works at Full Court Press now so i just go there normally. There are some really great places in Bristol to get good coffee. Anyway, since then I bought a gaggia classic and recently upgraded to a Compak K3 which is just great! Will probably upgrade the classic at some point, or put a PID on it. As it is I'm making more brewed coffee than filter recently. Using the aeropress mainly, can't seem to get on with the V60. Been having some lovely filters from James Roasters as usual - great beans. Anyway just thought I'd post a quick introduction as I haven't had a chance to do so yet!
  7. Some friends are going over tomorrow and Im keen to try some. Any recommendations? I prefer the chocolatey/ nutty/ caramel side of things, and actively steer away from 'fruity acidity' Starting to prefer slightly darker roasts, Rave signature has been a new coffee I've really enjoyed recently..
  8. Dylan

    Wogan Coffee

    Heard these mentioned on HUKD of all places, haven't heard much about them. They have a good website and claim to be the biggest roaster in the south west. Good discount on KG purchases an a good range of roasts. Has anyone here tried them? Any recommendations on blends?
  9. Just spotted that Didn't You Do Well in Bristol are selling some gear. Here is what they said on Twitter: "We still have some equipment for sale. Including a nearly new Mythos and equally pristine hario beam heater plus others! Get in touch!"
  10. I know of Brewer's Droop on Gloucester Road, anything else local to the city centre that is well recommended? Thanks.
  11. My local roasters are either Extract coffee or Wogan. One thing that concerns me is that Wogan vacuum packs it's coffee with no roast date that I can see, only a best before. Not sure if this is a sign of a good roaster or not? Thanks
  12. I do not often pop reviews up. However I felt this place really justifies it. A fairly recent opening in Bristol however in my eyes they have come a LONG way very quickly. I have had the pleasure to meet the owner numerous times and his Baristas Kit (Previously at Wild at Heart) and another blond haired chap whose name I did not get. Anyway. Location is great. Off the main drag but not too far. Nice and basic but comfy inside. Enough space and a good atmosphere even when quiet. Now the important bit. The Coffee. Myself and a friend and occasionly the other half have been going here fairly often and ALWAYS visit when in the area. Hands down the best coffee Bristol has to offer. They are incredibly passaionate about all things coffee and produce some stunning drinks no matter your poison. Flat whites, Espresso, Filter. All have been top notch. They alter there coffees often which is nice as well. Coffees have come from Tate, Square Mile, Has Bean and loads of others. They always run 2 Filters and 2 Espressos to be drunk as Espresso or Flat White/Cappa/Latte. I would go so far as to say his offerings are as good or perhaps better than the best coffee London's heavyweights have to offer. They always have enought time to talk to you as well which is great for us coffee geeks. Make sure you visit them if you are ever in Bristol. They are on Twitter/Facebook/Google Web. I am not afiliated with them at all, they are just a fantastic coffee shop run by enthusiasts who care about good coffee.
  13. The Bristol Wine and Food Fair takes place 02-04 July For full information please read the press release
  14. I actually plucked up the courage to visit these in person instead of the lovely anonymity of the internet, expecting to be soundly laughed out of his small workshop with my inexperience ridiculed and non-commercial background I was asked into one of the offices and shown some of the tools of the trade along with some lovely machines.......I asked what kind of roast would he recommend as I love a lot of flavour in my coffee and he took me through to their kitchen and proceeded to make cup after cup of coffee to display his range and what they themselves drink, these guys have a close connection with Italy and had recently come back the day before on bean business. I tried one in espresso form, americano, latte (double and single shot) and whilst flourishing of the drink with a beautiful rosetta made with an ease and off handed skill that made me grin from ear to ear I bought 1kg of Riposo to ru through....this guy could have sold me a click tamper, tamper station and a few other bits and bobs on his say but all he said was to practice with what works with the pressure a well fitting tamper (which I have) and that with most domestic machines you will get a better result than commercial most times with a good brass group head and fresh beans and to not worry about upgrade-itus as I have a good machine and just go for the taste......and practice! lol
  15. Hi, does anyone have any clues about finding estates to import coffee beans from, to the UK?

  18. Lovely bright sunny day up here in the North-East, and I'm starting off with an espresso from Hasbean's 2010 Premium Blend. I roasted these on Thursday, going a little bit darker than I normally would, and it seems to have suited the blend well. A subtle sweetness to the aftertaste. What's everyone else drinking?
