I've ordered a v60 kit from amazon, So waiting on that. Been drinking instant and using a Tassimo machine but thought I'd come on here and read up more about making a decent cup of coffee. Thanks.

Hi from someone else in Norwich.

 

You can buy beans from the some of the world's best roasters at the two Kofra locations, and have the best coffee in Norwich too. You can check out Strangers (two locations) and Little Red Roaster (three locations) too.

 

This is going to sound crazy to you - but if you want to make tasty coffee here you need to be using bottled water. I'm sure you have noticed how bad the limescale issue is in Norwich. Ashbeck, Waitrose Essentials and Volvic are good starting points.


Londinium I, Mahlkönig Vario, Hario Skerton, Chemex 1-3 Cup.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

@joey24dirt unfortunately not. Looking at grinders and my wallet is crying.

@AndyDClements will try and pop into smokey barn, thanks for the recommendation.

 

@aaronb Thanks, will definitely need to pop in to these places and yes the water in Norwich is pretty bad. Will have to try using bottled water.

 

Thanks.
