Hi guys,

 

I'm new here, from Belfast, Northern Ireland just across the water. Joined to see more about the UK coffee scene and to share opinions and learn from other coffee lovers.

My current favourite is Sinnamon, I often have cappuccinos when I go out for a coffee, the espresso being a little too short to be particularly social and Americanos being too bitter for my taste. Sinnamon seems to get their milk steaming just right, nice velvety texture. Clements used to manage this but seem to have gone downhill, you now seem to usually get the dreaded large bubble soap sud foam.

 

I hear great things about Espresso Elements on the Lisburn Road though, they are apparently an Australian chain who have opened here.

 

The undoing of many Belfast coffee shops is unfortunately the quality of their beans. I bought a bag from ground espresso (a NI chain) very very darkly roasted, too much so infact and clearly stale. Threw them out rather than crap up my mazzer mini - and these are the beans they use in the shop

hi edward, I actually run the clememts in royal avenue, i can say we achieve mirofoam at all times, otherwise the coffee will not be sent out, which shops do you usually go into and i can pass it on to the relevant managers and sort out this problem.

 

As far as beans go, i agreee that many coffee shops have over roasted beans, but in this shop we also do a range of smaller run beans roasted especially for filter coffee if you are interested
