  1. I am currently working a dreaded night shift with the rain falling heavily outside and wishing I was back in the south west. Stayed just outside Porthleven on the Lizard and visited the splendid Origin coffee house a couple of times . A very nice location, a very decent cup of coffee to be had there and on one of the days Charles and Camilla dropped in as well . A trip to a beautiful but horribly crowded St Ives allowed me to drop in to Mount Zion where I had good chat the owner Mike. He is, as stated in previous threads, truly passionate about coffee and what he does. If you're in the area pop in you won't be disappointed . I also managed to ,whilst on one the wife's shopping trips ,locate and visit Olfactory Coffee Roasters in Penryn. The guys there were very welcoming and allowed me to have a look round and have a few tastings Unfortunately its back to the real world but if you're down in that area I can confirm good coffee is alive and well.
  2. I've just got back from a week in Cornwall and thought I'd write a bit about the few coffee places I visited... Great coffee to be had at the Hub (La Marzocco machine and Origin beans) and Mt Zion, both in St Ives. The chap at Mt Zion (didn't catch his name) was very passionate and knowledgeable. He was using some Square Mile and Yallah beans through Mahlkonig EK43 and ANFIM, with a Simonelli machine. Full of conversation about all things coffee related and made plenty of suggestions about books, beans, grinders etc. I also visited Origin's Brewhouse where TJ lined up a couple of different espressos to taste and compare, which included a great Cascara and Earl Grey palate cleanser. I purchased a few 250g bags of beans and TJ (who was really friendly and interested) threw in some of their new Gaikundo roast and then directed me to the roasting house to pick up some Cascara (which they ended up giving me for free). When my girlfriend and I arrived we were given a tour by Tom, which was really interesting. It was great to hear someone with such passion and knowledge talking about their beans and roasting etc. Here's a picture of their eco-friendly Smart Roaster for you (I can't work out how to rotate it though ). We visited a couple of other places - The Dog & Rabbit and Lost Gardens of Heligan both did decent Flat Whites using Origin and La Marzocco, and The Yellow Canary (I think) in St Ives wasn't a bad espresso. There's clearly a lot of people using Origin and La Marzocco in the area (Origin provide a lot of LM servicing and I assume are a main supplier). Overall there's some great coffee in the SW area of England. Unfortunately, I didn't get to visit some of the other places recommended, but more reasons to go back!
  3. In Cornwall for the week and just wondering what the best speciality coffee shops in the northern part Cornwall are? and by northern i mean padstow, polzeath, port isaac and tintagle sort of way.
  4. Am heading off to Newquay tomoz, for family reasons (wearing black fwiw), anyone know of somewhere either serving good coffee or hopefully a roaster/café in the area? Not much outside of the chains pops up on a search, hence the question.
