Cappuccino in Krema

September 23, 2017

Krema is one of those coffee coffee shops where guaranteed a consistently good cappuccino.

Today, no exception. Indeed one of the best cappuccinos I have had in Krema.

Horsham Pioneer v 5.0.

A new espresso blend from Horsham, which may in part explain why my cappuccino was so good today.

Cappuccino in Krema

Krema, for a decent coffee.

For some perverse reason, everything came in reverse order, first a cappuccino, followed by a sausage roll, followed by soup.

Maybe my fault, as I ordered in reverse order.

I also bought a bag of coffee beans, Pioneer v4.0 from Horsham Coffee Roasters.

Soup and cappuccino at Krema

October 22, 2016


I was pleased to find, now the weather has turned cold, that soup is back on the menu at Krema.

Excellent tomato and pepper soup, with a I think they said Wenslydale cheese. Big chunk of bread. Generous portion size.

A trip to the butcher, then back for a cappuccino and flapjack.

I noticed cascara on the board. I asked. Yes, it was a new addition.

Krema serve as tea, in a tea pot. Contrast with Coffee Lab who prepare and serve cold.

Excellent soup and cappuccino in Krema

Excellent tomato soup in Krema. To be precise, tomato and mascarpone cheese, with a hint of paprika.  No skimping on portion size, portion size generous.

I was going to ask for a glass of water. I did not have to, one was brought.

Excellent cappuccino.

I prefer cappuccino without chocolate and cocoa is better than chocolate, but I prefer to be asked.

Chocolate ruins a cappuccino, as does sugar, but in this case,  it did not.

I would have had a flapjack, I would have preferred a cookie, but decided on a walnut and coffee cake. I prefer cake with tea. The cake was excellent too.

As well as coffee from the espresso machine, Krema are experimenting with cold brew coffee.

Would I like to try?

I was brought  a small frosted glass, a cold brewed Kenyan coffee.

To say the least, very unusual, an acquired taste. Nothing like coffee. I expected something bitter. Not so, a fruity taste. Almost like an alcoholic drink without the alcohol.

On my  one and only visit, I was probably a bit hard on the barsita, a little bit miserable and needed to loosen up.

Maybe he had a hard day, maybe not the friendly type.

Not so today, went out of his way to be helpful, explain the coffee, the soup, the cake.

I would rather people were themselves than the plastic smile in a chain.

With excellent coffee available, someone knowledgeable on coffee, it begs the question of why anyone drinks the disgusting coffee in Caffe Nero, Costa or tax dodging Starbucks?

Though I would add, Krema is always packed, Starbucks near empty.

Maybe word is getting out.
