  1. When I know I'm going somewhere I always do a little coffee shop research before arrival. My girlfriend thinks I'm an anal nerd but hey, I love good coffee and I want to be able to enjoy good coffee wherever I am. Come to think of it, I never see her complaining when she's sipping back a tasty long black! Anyway, we were in London last weekend and travelled into Euston so I knew I wanted to go somewhere nice around that area. We wanted some decent food to complement our coffee too so opted for Caravan Restaurant and Coffee Roasters which is just behind Kings Cross/St Pancras stations in Granary Square, what seems like a new development. Caravan definitely didn't disappoint. Its situated in an old Victorian Grain store and is a big open space with loads of seating. It had a great atmosphere, good music and friendly staff. Plus, we managed to get a table for two on a busy Saturday lunchtime with no hassle which was great. Coffee was extremely tasty. Pretty sure they were serving their Daily Blend which is freshly roasted on site. Bit fruitier than your traditional espresso but really interesting. They also had a choice of 2 filter coffees (one blend and one single origin) and provided supporting material so you could read about each one and make an informed decision based on cup profile. I really like it when places do this. We ate off the brunch menu and food was a bit pricier than I'm used to in Chester but I was happy to pay the extra seeing as the quality was so good. Think it cost us around £27 for the two of us and it was definitely worth it. Left with a smile on my face, feeling full and satisfied! You can buy their freshly roasted espresso blends and single origin beans on site and you can stare lovingly at their beautiful Probat roaster which is on display if you're a geek like me. Highly recommend this one.
  2. Great Coffee, nice atmosphere, WIFI to boot. All at a very, very reasonable price. This cafe is part of the Teammates Indonesia Chain of stores. The staff are passionate and knowledgeable. More...
  3. Did we misspell cream? No, it is a real word. Crema is the thick, golden-brown foam that develops in the filter and encrusts the top of an espresso serving. Crema gives espresso its complexity, depth of flavor and texture. Crema is the single most important indicator of espresso quality. Proper emulsification of water and oil is what produces proper Crema. Dr. Joseph Josuma, a leading espresso expert states, “Crema markedly alters an espresso in terms of its mouth feel, density, viscosity, wetting power, and foam-forming ability, making it the single most important indicator of espresso quality. If there is no crema, it means the oils have not been emulsified, and hence it is not an espresso.” We chose CREMA as our name because it represents our primary goal, excellence in quality. Our passion for the best quality in coffee, espresso and service is proudly rooted in our Italian heritage. So is our love for pizza we suspect. We believe that smaller, traditional European sized beverages highlight the taste of espresso. Few Americans have tasted genuine Italian-style espresso, even though specialty coffee purveyors bode high quality, many Baristas are ill trained to craft a truly Italian experience. We want to change that. At CREMA, we guarantee that every espresso has been properly extracted. Our Baristas have gone through intensive training and continue to grow in their skills. At CREMA we are always looking for ways to perfect our coffee and espresso. We hope you enjoy sharing in this experience, your satisfaction is our delight. More...
  4. Situated on the First Floor in the Leighton Buzzard Library is the Leighton Buzzard Culture Cafe, under new management and making steady improvements to the coffee and quality of service. With some exciting initiatives, recent investment in fixtures and fittings and a visionary manager this cafe is set to hit the radar of an increasing number of Leighton Buzzard and Linslade locals. Using a Jura XS90 Bean-to-Cup Machine, Adam and his team serve a realistically priced, above-average cup of coffee that challenged my thinking about bean-to-cup machines. Don't dwell on the detail too much as the target audience is not your average coffee snob, but seasoned library go'ers, families, students and the elderly. With disabled access and a direct route to the library this is an ideal place to escape the high street and has a good following of regulars of all ages. When you walk in you feel safe and not judged in any way. The coffee shop serves a good selection of affordable pastries and muffins as well as snacks, drinks and hot food. Coffee 6/10
  5. KOKOBLACK 167 Lygon St CARLTON, 3053 Melbourne, AUSTRALIA If you LOVE chocolate, and I do mean LOVE chocolate, and all things chocolate, then this is truly the place for you! Make no mistake; this is a chocoholic’s heaven, beyond compare! Everything about this place was outstanding: The service, the attention to detail, the ambient atmosphere, the ... More...
  6. ** UPDATE ** Scroll down to read the review I passed this cafe in the Peak District this morning and sadly didn't have time to drop in but it looked lovely from the outside. Has anyone been in and can they provide a review?
  7. Taking advantage of a fine day in a British Summer we headed to St Albans to try out The Merchant Tea & Coffee Co, a cafe that has recently opened in the old town hall. We managed to get a seat outside in the town square, an ideal place for people watching and with the weekly market in full swing we had non-stop entertainment for the hour that we were there. The cafe is well laid out with an enticing array of desserts and pannini's, a departure from the traditional croissant and muffins of the high st chain stores. Sporting a lovely Gaggia machine and matching grinders the service area was spacious and uncluttered. The decor inside was in the style of a plantation from the 1800's with some neat touches (like the fans in the form of a leaf) We ordered cheesecakes and of course the coffee. Flat White's were on the menu so my wife chose this as she has them everywhere she can. It met expectations but wasn't quite as good as those found in NZ and Australia. I chose the latte, their most popular beverage (according to the barista). The base espresso was strong enough to cut through the milk and pleasant to drink. Nothing extraordinary but certainly a well prepared beverage. We were served after a short delay (the cafe was heaving due to it being almost lunchtime) and our food and drinks were delivered to our table within 5 minutes. I'd recommend The Merchant Tea & Coffee Co to anyone looking for a coffee in St Albans and will be back to try their extensive range of desserts. Coffee - 7/10 Service - 7/10 Cost - 7/10 (slightly higher than other London prices) What is a Flat White? Read The Merchant Tea & Coffee Co press release

  10. Albina Press has some of the best coffee and dedicated Barista's in Portland, located in the up and coming Mississippi neighborhood in what was previously the Pacific Switchboard gallery. A modern and large lobby with an array of comfortable seating creates an outstanding atmosphere to enjoy your perfect latte art carefully crafted and cared for. A truly great coffee shop, with superior coffee quality. More...
  11. In an area packed full of cafes, patisseries and tearooms, Ginger and White stands out from the crowd. The team are passionate about their coffee, serving lovingly prepared flat whites and other espresso based drinks (using Squaremile beans) from a La Marzocco 3 group with an Anfim grinder. The coffee is paired with an appetising menu, using locally sourced produce, oozing quality, and embracing the slow food ethos. The table service menu has been designed by published food stylist Tonia George, whose books can be read (and purchased) whilst you relax over coffee and boiled egg soldiers or a sausage and brown sauce butty. Located on a pedestrianised side street, just away from the hustle and bustle of Hampstead High Street, you'll be able to find a table to suit your style, either inside (couches, communal tables, people watching seats at the window), or dining al-fresco outside where you can be seen. Don't just stop at 1 coffee, have another (I can recommend the macchiato) and try the cakes and pastries. Honest food, great coffee and a funky vibe puts Ginger and White on the map for any visitor to London's Northern suburbs.
