Birmingham city centre / JQ

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


Noticed Urban and Saint Cafe, offer V60 and Aeropress on their menu, so going to pop in and try - never seen this before on a menu, always been the espresso based drinks.


Any other recommendations of places to visit?

Faculty 100%. Quarter Horse is a bit out of the way of JQ and a few minutes walk from City Centre.


Wayland's Yard in the city centre is excellent and I would peg it on par with Faculty.

Not heard of waylands yard. Pretty excited to give them a go at the weekend. Cheers.

Think I'm giving up on Quarterhorse. I'm here right now and after suspecting the coffee isn't all that for some time I'm now firmly in that view.


Espresso taster - a double each of their standard Dark Horse blend and a Guji something or other. Neither was suitable for espresso in its own right. Just ordered a decaf flat white to balance out the caffeine and it tipped over the £3.00 mark. Had two or three bags of beans over time and none of them seem to shine. It's also the coldest day since the summer and it's pretty cold in here an hour after opening.


The original, but necessarily the best I'm sorry to say.
