  1. Sold
    Following an impulsive upgrade, I now have rather rare sprung lever in need of a new loving home…. Judging by this thread…. bought from Bella Barista in early 2018. This...
  2. Find a Coffeeshop
    Hello folks, as the title suggests, are there any good coffee shops located around (10 min walk) Bristol's bearpit or Cabot Circus? I work near there quite often so it would be good to spend some time in a decent coffee shop. Not really food bothered, more about the coffee. Any advice...
  3. Find a Coffeeshop
    Can anybody point me in the direction of good coffee near Bristol Temple Meads or the county court? Thanks in advance!
  4. Coffee Lounge
    Just picked up via twitter what most of you in Bristol will already have known - that the fair city is going coffee festival in September. Probably well timed in a good spread across the year of UK festivals from London-Glasgow-Bristol-Manchester. Not a lot of detail yet unless anyone knows...
  5. Introductions
    Hi all, my names Rory and I'm at university in Bristol, originally from south London (Sutton area). I've been on this forum for a little while now and always find the advice on here invaluable. I rarely do/buy anything related to coffee without consulting the forum first! I first got into...
  6. Barista Skills for the home enthusiast
    So I've been battling away for long enough now and am still rarely pulling a decent espresso. At least to my untrained eye everything looks as it should but they're all coming out aggressively sour or bitter. Is there anyone that offers training in the Bristol area? I'm starting to feel guilty...
  7. Coffee Beans
    I know of Brewer's Droop on Gloucester Road, anything else local to the city centre that is well recommended? Thanks.
  8. Coffee Beans
    Some friends are going over tomorrow and Im keen to try some. Any recommendations? I prefer the chocolatey/ nutty/ caramel side of things, and actively steer away from 'fruity acidity' Starting to prefer slightly darker roasts, Rave signature has been a new coffee I've really enjoyed recently..

    Just spotted that Didn't You Do Well in Bristol are selling some gear. Here is what they said on Twitter: "We still have some equipment for sale. Including a nearly new Mythos and equally pristine hario beam heater plus others! Get in touch!"
  10. Coffee Beans
    Heard these mentioned on HUKD of all places, haven't heard much about them. They have a good website and claim to be the biggest roaster in the south west. Good discount on KG purchases an a good range of roasts. Has anyone here tried them? Any recommendations on blends?
  11. Coffee Beans
    My local roasters are either Extract coffee or Wogan. One thing that concerns me is that Wogan vacuum packs it's coffee with no roast date that I can see, only a best before. Not sure if this is a sign of a good roaster or not? Thanks
  12. Find a Coffeeshop
    I do not often pop reviews up. However I felt this place really justifies it. A fairly recent opening in Bristol however in my eyes they have come a LONG way very quickly. I have had the pleasure to meet the owner numerous times and his Baristas Kit (Previously at Wild at Heart) and another...
  13. Coffee Beans
    Lovely bright sunny day up here in the North-East, and I'm starting off with an espresso from Hasbean's 2010 Premium Blend. I roasted these on Thursday, going a little bit darker than I normally would, and it seems to have suited the blend well. A subtle sweetness to the aftertaste. What's...

  15. Coffee Beans
    I actually plucked up the courage to visit these in person instead of the lovely anonymity of the internet, expecting to be soundly laughed out of his small workshop with my inexperience ridiculed and non-commercial background I was asked into one of the offices and shown some of the tools of...
