Cappuccino correct size cup 200 Degrees Lincoln

Many problems with coffee at 200 Degrees, poor quality coffee beans, coffee served a cup size too large, for example flat white served in size for cappuccino, cappuccino served in a size too large.

This unfortunately is the bad practice in chains like Costa, serve a cappuccino in a soup bowl to give the false impression of value (super size me philosophy), dump chocolate on top to mask the vile taste of bad coffee.

Seating outside catches the late afternoon sun, and No Smoking a bonus, I decided to dally, enjoy the sun and if possible try a little experiment.

Cappuccino served in cup size too large results in weak and insipid cup of coffee. Could I improve the coffee by requesting in the cup used for a flat white, in other words the correct cup size?

When offered a size that is big, it is not offering value for money, it is offering bad coffee.

To have a sign outside a coffee shop offering big, is simply embarrassing.

I had had a cappuccino at 200 Degrees Lincoln two weeks earlier, how would it compare?

My experiment unfortunately flawed as not comparing like with like, no guest coffee and was obliged to use their house blend (which is terrible).

Anyway staff kindly acceded to my request, cappuccino tried whilst sat outside.

A tad too hot. Yes, an improvement as far as improvement went, but an unpleasant taste, which I could not determine what or why, but not the unpleasant bitter taste of robusta.

200 Degrees unfortunately contaminate, adulterate, call it what you will, their arabica coffee with vile tasting cheap robusta, something no self-respecting roastery or coffee shop would do, other than to bulk out their coffee, profit rules ok.

The unpleasant taste unfortunately remained in my mouth for the next hour.
