The Flying Coffee Bean, Brighton, UK

When taking the train from Brighton I normally get my java from The FBC. Run by a somewhat aggressive Irishman who feigns joviality it is a fast turnaround which is often required when running for the choo-choo.

Small Black Americano.
  • A weak but sweet tasting cup. 
  • Muddy gritty aftertaste. 
  • No crema.
  • Small cup.
  • £1.60. 

Previously I have saved up my loyalty points and then got a large (3 shots) in a medium cup. This gave the coffee some flavour. Another trick for these factory coffee houses is to ask them to put less water in.

Normally bearable this was pretty poor but above the (very low) mean of large coffee chains.
