I've been reading this forum for a while but this is my first post - I'd like to recommend a great independent coffee shop called the Micro Roastery in Canterbury. Lovely coffee brewed using freshly roasted beans (as the name suggests, they roast the beans on site). The seasonal 'house blend' is a safe bet but they have a good selection of single origin beans too. You can buy beans to take home for a reasonable price too.

Great name! If you haven't already done so you can also post this under the beans sub-forum where there is a list of many retailers.

 

P.s. some of the other roasters that come on the site will also banner advertise and offer some discounts to forum members.

 

P.p.s if you're looking to send any samples out they'd be gratefully received :-).

Been to Spring Espresso in York today. Some good news and bad news.

 

Bad news - the square mile red brick double espresso I had was really nothing special, didn't seem hot enough and too fruity for my liking.

 

Good News - my home espresso tastes better to me than a highly rated coffee shop. The posh bacon sandwich I had in there was out of this world, maybe the best bacon sandwich I've ever had.

I went on Sunday and the flat white was fine. First time we'd been to Spring, was a toss-up between this one and the Fossgate Social over the road. Trouble is we also passed the Perky Peacock on Lendle bridge and our favourite haunt, Brew & Brownie on the way..

Went last summer and agree totally. Espresso was too 'light roast' for me but the BLT was, as for you, possibly the best sandwich I have ever had.

 

We also went to the Attic (? can't remember without checking) They were using hasbeen beans and the coffees were really good

Had a quick shot on the go today from the Piaggo van outside the Asmoleum Museum in Oxford. Exhausting day trawling round the Ashmoleum & Pitt Rivers Museums. Not to bad, they use Extract original beans.

Been enjoying The Garden Deli in Nene Court, in Wellingborough recently. Small and friendly and good coffee. Lovely garden too. They are linked to Bella Barista and use their beans, which works for me.

Well worth a visit if you're in Wellingborough.

This is a handy recommendation for anyone finding themselves in the coffee wilderness that is South West Scotland. I saw a fancy coffee type sign when I was out Christmas shopping in Ayr and discovered Roundsquare Roastery at the back of a teeny arcade. My first decent coffee out in a year, and they were very welcoming, and keen to discuss their coffee technology. I was quite emotional when I left clutching my precious flat white.

Coffee #1 in Aberystwyth

Lady called Emma made me a great espresso which had great consistency and FULL of flavour. I don't usually frequent coffee bars but I would go there again if in Aberystwyth. Great service. Highly recommended.
