Cappuccino at Blend & Brew

Blend and Brew used to have a tiny little coffee shop on a corner, more a counter than a coffee shop. Only once ever found open as not open on a Sunday, at I guess their clientele is commuters.

When I did find open, they were opening a coffee shop on the opposite corner. Corner coffee shop now open.

I was not going to have a coffee as their coffee crap, but thought ok I would try, maybe it has improved.

It is still crap, over-roasted cheap crap Italian coffee. Worse still, I was first served a cappuccino with chocolate, which I sent back.

Why does no one know how to serve a cappuccino?

I do not know which is worse, being served with chocolate or being asked if I want chocolate? At least the latter I do not have to send the coffee back. But I should not even be asked, cappuccino is not served with chocolate. It ruins a good coffee. Though for bad coffee it does at least take away the taste of the bad coffee.

I did not have to ask, I could tell from the taste, black over-roasted coffee beans.

A pity as they have done an excellent job on the coffee shop and the food and cakes looked good.

Staff pleasant and friendly.

I picked up latest copy of The Independent Brighton & Hove Coffee Guide which was useful as I could not find my copy. The number of coffee shops has doubled since the guide was published last year, though I would question the inclusion of some of the entries.

The coffee shop was empty. Maybe because Sunday they used to be closed or maybe because their coffee is crap and far better coffee at Coffee at 33 further down the street.
