Tarrant Street Espresso

August 3, 2018

In Arundel, we look in a few coffee shops, catering supply coffee.

We find Tarrant Street Espresso. It is closed. It is a little after 3-30.  What sort of place is this? He closes at four, but today early. We make do with a takeaway. For Square Mile Red Brick espresso blend it is a disappointment. The coffee shop more of a kiosk.

Best of a bad bunch.

Coffee shops serving catering supply coffee. Could get away with this five years ago, not today with discerning coffee drinkers.

Spring Espresso Lendal

April 20, 2018

What a difference walking down a street can make.

Excellent brunch at Burr Coffee, the coffee awful.

Is my sense of taste awry? No, bad coffee.

Spring Espresso Lendal serves coffee from Square Mile, Red Brick espresso blend and single origin.

I have yet to have a bad Square Mile coffee and Spring Espresso Lendal was no exception.

Excellent cappuccino, restoring my faith that my sense of taste had not gone awry.

Did they have guest coffees? Occasionally, but very rarely as always a changing guest coffee from Square Mile.

I noticed a Synesso espresso machine. Showing an interest, I was told the only one in the country, at least of that model. Spring Espresso have a second coffee shop in York with a different Synesso.

On the counter a small cold brew tower. I have never seen one so small, though unusual to ever see one in the UK.  It was dripping at one drip every two seconds through the coffee and into a carafe below. Eight hours.  Odd though to serve with tonic.

Cappuccino in Madame Waffle

September 1, 2017

Most of the afternoon spent in Madame Waffle.

Excellent cappuccino, far better than the undrinkable cappuccino in Stokes on High Bridge a couple of days ago.

Cappuccino brewed using Red Brick, a house blend from Square Mile.

It was then a V60 using the Martin Hudak Signature Geisha that I had brought along as a guest coffee.
