  1. Hi, I live near Scarborough but travel to York and Hull on a frequent basis, does anyone know a decent bean stockist I could use ? I appreciate there are plenty of online stockists that forum members use but I like the personal touch if possible. I might be old fashoined but I prefer to look at what Im buying and its good to talk Thanks
  2. My girlfriend just moved to York for university, so I went straight on the hunt for things to do if she has any lectures while i'm visiting. Whilst using http://www.cosycoffeeshops.Co.uk, I found Harlequin. My girlfriend humored me today, and we went in this afternoon. Service was good, I started with a flat white, which was sweet and delicious. My lady had a bit of coffee with her usual serving if sugar.....oh dear. After, I had an espresso, made with Hasbeans Kicker blend. I mentioned to the lady serving me that I'd never felt able to get it right on my machine. She insisted on getting the owner, Gordon, to make it for me, as he is the best barista there lol. They offered to let me come behind the counter to see him work, but I can be a bit shy. Anyway, I got my espresso and it was brilliant.v straight from the aroma I knew it was better than my results. The taste was balanced, the shot staying sweet and finishing with a [not too aggressive] acidic bite on the back of the tongue. Gordon came over to ask how it was, and the way he spoke about coffee just screamed enthusiasm. He explained why kicker could be difficult to get right, took interest in what equipment I use etc. He then took me to their new area upstairs. Its a trendy, relaxed bar type area, where they have all different methods of brewing, several grinders etc. This trendy area is apparently open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, into the evening. He selects specialist coffees for the evening, and the idea is to talk about the coffees, and discuss how the different methods work with each etc. Is a really pleasant space. Gordon pointed me to a shop down the road for an oil drizler too, pointing out that for "£14 they do the same as the hario kettles, so I duly went to buy one Gordon and his staff are incredibly friendly, the coffee is outstanding. I shall become a regular
  3. great cappuccino's and the raisin bagels are superb (made by an italian restaurant along the road)!
  4. I have been to York for the last few days and just happened across this coffee shop in Kings Square. The coffee was first class ( it was Hasbeans and his own blend) and when I commented it was so much better than I could make Gordon the owner presumably offered for me to come back for some instruction later in the day. He was true to his word and his passion for coffee showed through, he must have spent half an hour or more showing me the ropes on his commercial machine it was most enlightening. Anyway all I can say is if you're in the area give it a try. Gaz nice cakes and tea too
  5. http://www.brewandbrownie.co.uk/ Have been going here on and off for a year to sample their amazing pancake stacks, always had decaf loose leaf tea though so can't comment on their coffee (yet) but reading their intro page... "Our coffee is sourced from a fantastic artisan roastery Carvetii Coffee, situated in the Lake District they love coffee and care about the sustainability of where their beans are sourced, take a look...http://www.carvetiicoffee.co.uk/" ..and from going there they advertise that they have the temperature set to give the best shots. I haven't noticed what equipment they use (there are some pics on their gallery page.. What I will say is it is usually packed! We sometimes have to walk round the block or wait outside to get a seat. It is very popular. If you are on Farcebook take a look and try not to drool over the pictures.. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Brew-Brownie/412398068856876?ref=br_tf Easy to find as it's opposite the museum gardens main entrance on Lendle Bridge. The is a car park in Queen Street at the other end of the museum gardens if you are driving so there's no excuse not to visit (except if you're not visiting York anyway..) Here's a blog after googling... http://carvetiiblog.com/2013/08/
  6. Hi We are setting up a New Coffee Shop, its quite small so I expect to sell anywhere between 40 and 100 coffees per day and would expect no more than say 20 in any 1 hour period. I am thinking of a 2 group machine but have no idea of what boiler capacity to go for? I was thinking of spending around £4000 and hope to have it installed for this. Any suggestions out there. Oh and I also need a couple of grinders, regular and decaf! Cheers G
  7. So Hi! Zach here, Commercial roaster in York! In the past this great site has helped in many different aspects and I love popping on to see whats happening! Currently on the search for some QC advise on green coffee if there are any other roasters out there?! Thanks, ZC
