Saw Grinders Union

Saw Grinders Union a coffee shop and bar located in Globe Works on Kelham Island.

A few minutes walk from Cutlery Works, if know the way.

Down a muddy alley running alongside the River Don, twists and turns down the deserted cobbled backstreets of Kelham Island.

On offer Extract Coffee. I have never been impressed with Extract, I chose one of the guest coffees, an espresso roast from Workshop as a cappuccino. The other guest coffee was Grumpy Mule.

My cappuccino not great somewhat weak and insipid.

Saw Grinders Union only been open a few months, still finding their way.

Knowledgeable barista, knew her coffee and coffee shops. Previously had worked in Australia and Upshot Coffee.

She asked of my favourite coffee shops in Sheffield. Marmadukes and Steam Yard, also Upshot Coffee.

I suggested she visit Coffee Aroma and Madame Waffle in Lincoln,  The Perky Peacock and Kiosk in York.  I could have added Cartwheel Coffee, Outpost Coffee and The Specialty Coffee Shop in Nottingham.

She then kindly walked outside with me and pointed me the way to catch the tram back into the city centre and to the train station.
