  1. Paid a visit to here on Monday. Full disclosure I know one the Barista's here from his time in Lancaster. It's a 12 month residency at the Old Bank In Manchester. Directions etc here https://www.swansong.coffee Coffee wise, absolutely Fab. This is labour of love for the guys running it. Roasters changing every two week, with some real variety in there. They had a choice of Huck Roaster or Cloud Picker for filter, with Heart and Graft on espresso. On recommendation went for the washed Ethiopian from Cloud Picker on v60. It was delicious, syrupy sweet citrus. Top three this yea
  2. More on the edge of Covent Garden but what a find. Ordered a flat white under house blend espresso - dark tasting flat white with a hint of plum (sweet and not the normal sour taste). They also have a range of coffees you can take away - I was that impressed by the espresso blend I ordered 400g for around 10 quid. Easily to replicate the taste 18.5/36g 40 seconds (7 seconds starts to pour). You can have coffees served from standard machine espressos to halogen lamp pour overs. The hot chocolate (according to my better half) was out of this world -I took a taste and it was that rich s
  3. Hello! I was looking for some coffee lovers and found this lovely forum! If you have some time (about 4 minutes) I would be grateful if you could support my bachelor thesis survey about coffee. Link to the survey : surveylegend.com/s/1xp7 Thanks a lot!
  4. Bugan coffee in Bergamo do V60 and espresso using single origins. Had a V60 of Ethiopian SO. Was decent but 6 euros! Given a standard coffee here is 1 euro I can't see it being a success
  5. Hello, I am moving from Bow, where I've lived for years to Woodford Green. It's a completely new area that I know very little about. Of course part of the fun will be to explore it but I would like to know if anyone has got a recommendation of a good café around there. I am mostly into espresso and lattes but I want to experiment more with other types of coffee.
  6. Hi, I am selling our san remo opera 2 coffee machine. We have had it for 2 years. In excellent condition, 3 group head. From our shop we closed last year in bath (hunter & sons). Please get in touch if interested. Open to resonable offers. Will organise shipping to anywhere in the uk. Thanks
  7. Hi, we closed our cafe down in bath last year and we are looking to sell our coffee machine (san remo opera 2) and some well looked after kitchen kit. Does anyone have any reccomendations on where i can sell them? Thanks.
  8. I'm taking a trip to the Channel Islands soon- are there any decent coffee shops worth visiting on Guernsey?

    Custom Linea

    Hi all, Just saw this custom Linea in a cafe here in Dublin. Quite cool, seems to be a full refurb. Just wondering if anyone else has seen custom versions of similar or anyone customised there own?
  10. Hi there! My name's Jake, and though a long time coffee enthusiast I've finally signed up to this forum as I'm I'm the planning stages of opening my own Coffee shop! We're opening (Providing everything goes well with our property viewing next week!) In an approx 1800 Sqft unit a Cafe with a roaster in the back to supply our own, and other Cafe's in the long run! Currently planning to set up with a La Marzocco Strada AP, with a couple K30 Grinders to suit, the only thing im stuck for choice on at the moment is Loveramics, or Acme cups, Hmmmm.
  11. Hi guys, Just a quick plug for a new coffee shop I am barista'ing at. Feel to free to move to appropriate page? Rockcity is an indoor climbing centre and skatepark in Hull and we've recently opened a new specialty coffee shop space in the venue. We've got beans from Manchester-based Heart and Graft in the hopper and plan to have changing local coffees on v60 and batch brew. You can even spectate the extreme sports whilst you sip your flat white (safe and risk free!) OR you could give it a try! Anyone in the area drop me a line or stop by for a drink!
  12. I'm curious as to where people think is the most exciting city/area for coffee. Berlin seems really interesting and packed full of roasters/cafes and I'm really keen to go, but there's plenty of other fantastic roasters and cafes around the world. I thought Dublin was really cool, and I always enjoy a visit to London. Plenty of Scandi countries look promising too. Perhaps some folks who are better traveled than I could impart their thoughts, I'd be keen to hear them! TLDR: If you could visit one place to drink at some of the best cafes, where would you go?
  13. I'm working there for a few days the week after next, and can't say I've ever had any noteworthy coffee there, but then I've never really sought it out either. I'm staying at the Aria and won't have buckets of time to trek down to the far ends of the strip. Anything worthwhile, or should I mentally prepare myself for Starbucks?
  14. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/indepth/25-pictures-of-britains-secret-underground-city-—-built-to-protect-the-government-from-nuclear-attack/ss-AAwVWhB?ocid=spartanntp&fullscreen=true#image=14 Yes I was seduced by clickbait. Don't judge me; I'm only human. Looks a great period piece though. Any idea what it would have dispensed? The make looks like Stott.
  15. Just spent a great day refining my self taught skills at Origin Coffee Coffee roasters London shop. It was the Barista Foundation course run by the SCA. It was superbly delivered by Dan O'Regan. Great kit to play with: Linea machines with al the electronics and some lovely Mythos grinders ( I know understand why people rave about them ). More confident and also importantly refined in my approach. Big Thumbs up to Origin ( who also do some great coffees ) for their delivery, passion and enthusiasm.
  16. As per Glenn's suggestion here's a new thread for the autumn / winter season London Meet Up, shout out to @jlarkin, @hotmetal, @Hibbsy, @MediumRoastSteam from the old thread and happy to see anyone new interested I'm free most weekends and I do understand it might be hard to pick a date which works for all, but lets try anyway I'll kick it off with: who's available in Sept (weekends, probably best to opt for Saturdays as some places might be shut on Sundays)? T.
  17. So i bought a Gaggia classic last year but I'm looking to upgrade to something a little nicer. I was thinking of starting a coffee van so maybe an industrial machine is the way to go. Any suggestions of makes or models would be great. I'm looking for a secondhand machine with a budget of £1000. Any links would be much appreciated.
  18. Hi coffee drinkers! I am Swede who is about to start a new café this autumn, and I'm therefore curious to know about your coffeshop habits. I've created a survey with a response time of approx. 2 minutes (answers are 100% anonymous). I would be truly grateful if you could take the time to conduct it. Thank you in advance! This is the link to the short survey: https://goo.gl/forms/IKrnU9NNghr5Gyo52 Best regards, David
  19. At last!!! A real cafe in Aberdeen - Figment Coffee, 70 Countesswells Road, Aberdeen AB15 7YJ. Just paid a visit, had a cortado, met owner (Neil) - doing everything RIGHT! Great news for Aberdeen.
  20. Saw this machine at the Manchester Coffee Festival yesterday, thought it was a custom jobby but actually just a machine from Sanremo. Nice looking centrepiece: http://www.sanremomachines.com/en/machines/caferacer/
  21. planing a trip to Rome and wonder where i can have an espresso and a flat white with my partner. usually in Rome we have only commercial beans coffee. would want some 3rd wave.
  22. Does anybody, anywhere, actually take CaféPay? I've been given a Frank Green cup as a gift and was wondering where I can actually use it to buy a coffee? Having done a google and twitter search, the only place I can seem to find that takes it, close to me, is Social Bite in Edinburgh. You can register for the CaféPay app to see a map of locations but you have to give your credit card details as part of the registration process so I'm not going to do that unless there's a chance I'm going to use it regularly. (Which is very unlikely if there are hardly any places that take it). I gue
  23. This is a fairly new venue having been open just a couple of months and I've been in quite a bit in that time. It's owned by Michaelangelo and Lucy - and despite the obvious Italian connection, this is (thankfully) definitely not an Italian coffee experience! They don't have the most exciting equipment in the world (I believe they're hoping to upgrade once they're up and running), but don't let this put you off. It's a great example of getting the best from what you have - Michaelangelo is a talented barista and I've had nothing but delicious coffee. Their main roaster is Alchemy in
  24. long shot - does anyone here know of a half-decent cafe in Serris? I MEANT SERRIS NOT CHESSY BUT CAN'T CHANGE THE THREAD TITLE NOW EDITED - Rob (although looking on tripadvisor and google doesn't seem to be much more than starbucks and pret a manger there!)
  25. Does anyone know of a good place to buy good quality coffee beans in Geneva please? I will be staying there for a few days next week (at the Palpexpo conference centre)& would be interested in sampling a local roastery if one is recommended. Also, any recommendations for nice cafes? thanks very much!
