Frankies Grinder, Brighton, UK

I’ve cycled and walked past this shop many  times but never wanted to walk my coffee all the way to work but for the course I finally did it. It looks inviting from the outside and even has a side hatch for takeaways which I find very appealing.

On checking that the small was made with two shots I opted for that. The Joe came fast and was served by a stunning looking Barista. This alongside the hot caffine softened the negative aspects of going to work.  The coffee had a good strength but perhaps could have been a little stronger, it was good but a tad over espressed as there was a touch of gritty aftertaste. 
The beans came from a small batch place but I didn't catch the name. Will update.

  • Small Black Americano
  • Medium to strong
  • Good taste marred slightly by a touch of over bitterness with the aftertaste
  • Good Crema
  • Small cup
  • £1.30
Not a bad coffee by any means, competantly made and a good price. However not up there with the best.
