Where are we all?

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this has been done to death, but I was just wondering whereabouts we all are in the UK? I'm keen to get to know some like-minded coffee fans, as I've not come across many where I am!

 

I'm in mid-Suffolk and have a cafe in Stowmarket.

 

i would be delighted to hold a gathering at the cafe if anyone was interested? We could do some tasting sessions, as at the moment, the bulk of our clientele think the local Costa is *the* place for coffee (yikes!)

I live in Ipswich,, only just up the road.

 

Do you allow well behaved dogs inside?

 

Costas policy is that they do at the discretion of the manager

 

I think Costa are letting a few poorly behaved ones in if the coffee's taste is anything to go by...

Id like to pop down at some point, we have a little spaniel too... Places that allow dogs are the best places!!!

Frank and Earnest (Bury St Edmunds). They roast to order, and we have really good links with them.

 

we've currently only one grinder, so sadly we don't swap and change much (I'm not there everyday and am a bit precious about the grinder set up! Ha) but we do what we can.

that said, I'd happily arrange a cupping session if anyone fancies it as would be really great to try some new stuff there as well as at home.

I'm about 100 metres from your cafe, but for my sins haven't been yet, (find it hard to justify drinking out, after the money I've spent on my setup,)

but as you seem like you may take a bit of care with yours, will pop in over the weekend

Will be interesting to try clarky's coffee, keep meaning to grab a bag but always deals on this forum
