Not sure if this is the right place for this.

 

Having recently moved away from the (caffeine induced) pulsating coffee scene in Bristol, I'd been resigning myself to the prospect of mail order only for my beans and supplies,not that one struggles for choice nowadays but I do like a shop.

 

Imagine my surprise when a chance stop at Brockley Stores (BS48 3AT) on the A370 revealed a shiny San Remo Roma churning out Extract coffee. I had a very well executed flat white while confirming the staff had been on the roaster's training day. I'd heard previously that Extract insist cafes who sell their coffee send their baristas to in-house training to make sure their drinks are well presented. A nice touch which I think shows pride and business savvy with their product.

 

They sell beans too, just the Swiss Water Decaff and ever reliable Original Espresso for now but I'll be pestering for Single Origins and Dr Strangelove.

 

Most importantly given that beans are readily available online, they also stock Bruton Dairy unhomoginised milk and is the first place I've found between Bristol and cheddar to do so.

 

Any other tips for the area would be fantastic. I'm sure other gems are out there.

Dusty ape coffee, but may be a little trek (Trowbridge nearest town)
