Lincoln is spoilt for choice for quality coffee.
The obvious is Stokes on High Bridge, then there is Stokes at The Collection, plus there are many indie coffee shops that serve Stokes coffee, for example Café 44 in Sincil Street, though if I am going to drink Stokes coffee, I may as well go to their coffee shop on the High Bridge.
An indie coffee shop I have never tried, is Coffee Aroma Coffee House, or Coffee Aroma.
I was at Springbok Computers having my laptop serviced, and an excuse to try the coffee, asked Matthew if he would like a coffee.
Very nice atmosphere downstairs, packed out. I did not look upstairs.
I was surprised at the number of staff serving.
A cappuccino for me, caramel latte for Matthew.
I watched the coffees being prepared, always a pleasure to watch skilled baristas at work.
One of the girls, when she saw I was taking the coffees away offered me a tray to carry with. Would you like it back, I asked? No, it can be recycled. Basically the same as would put eggs in, except shaped for takeaway coffee cups.
Coffee Aroma Coffee House is located off the High Street below The Stonebow in the centre of Lincoln.
With such an excellent choice of quality coffee and tea in Lincoln, it begs the question why anyone drinks the disgusting stuff they serve in Costa, Caffe Nero or tax-dodging Starbucks.
