A CUP OF COFFEE
probably drink too much coffee. I’ll often slurp a whole pot of the java in the morning. But I do love ‘going out’ for coffee. I’m partial to a Starbucks if I go big brand. But as an investigative food and drink lover I adore the independent brands with a love and passion for the craft. So I’d love to build up our own best coffee shops in…… feature
My criteria are
- Coffee – gotta be not too bitter or too strong or weak
- Brand – do I get and like what they’re about
- Interior – is it a good ‘third space’ (that place that’s neither work nor home but is a place for YOU)
- Variety – I really only want the coffee stuff, not pink milkshakes
I’ll start us off with Altrincham. These are in no particular order but are the ones I use and like
Nice guys, great coffee. Simple interior. Small food and snacks menu. Consistently great
One of 2 coffee shops in the market. Lovely smooth coffee and a funky shack to get it from. Can sometimes take a bit too long
Always hot and tasty. Good staff and brownies that should probably be illegal.
Gran T's Coffee House
Love sitting in here early morning. Ironic grandma décor. Coffee a little inconsistent
Common Ground Coffee House
Scandi style. Superb coffee. Breakfast is great, the pesto peas on toast a fave. Bit chilly in the cold weather.
There’s a few more that I like and use a bit, but these are my regular haunts.
Wherever you are send me links to coffee shops you love and let me know why.
