Cappuccino and cookie in Caracoli Farnham

Cappuccino far better than what I had in Caracoli Guildford. It would have been bad if worse.  But, Caracoli has an awful corporate feel, completely lacking in character.

I am pleased to see they sell their bread off at half price towards the end of the day. Or at least buy one get one free. Half price would be better. Then after the shop had closed, some women came and took what was left. Who they were I do not know. A soup kitchen maybe? Better than Loaf, who fail to reduce, then throw their bread away.

The only attraction of Caracoli Farnham is a highly skilled barista who knows a lot about coffee. But he departs soon for pastures new the other side of the world.

    A good barista makes a whole experience a lot better. Sad to see a good one leaves.

    My experience of Caracoli to date, not good.

    Caracoli Guildford, a manager who is clueless on coffee and harangues customers who tell the truth about appalling service. Neither of which helps to enhance their reputation.

    Caracoli Farnham, a brilliant barista. His brother, who I have yet to meet, owns Coffee Lab in Winchester, national barista champion for several years, international runner up.

    This excellent barista is going to Australia to join a coffee roaster, the same coffee roaster in England that roasts the beans for Coffee Lab.
