Redwood Coffee House, Brighton, UK

Another new coffee shop in Brighton opened on Trafalgar street. This new shop looked very nice inside but was deserted, this may have been because it was new or perhaps because of the entirely inappropriate early morning music. The coffee came fast but in a very large cup. Size is always an issue however I can say straight out that even with this size it was surprisingly well balanced. The coffee smelt good and was not beset with bitterness or ashtray after taste. The strength has been slightly diminished by the water but it was not burnt and still shone through with a touch of sweetness at the end. 

Without a doubt it had been well made with good technique and good beans. I could not clearly see where the beans where from but some notices implied they were roasting their own but certainly it seemed to be from a small batch set up.

  • Black Americano
  • Medium Strength
  • Good aroma with a smooth taste
  • Too large but not overly watery
  • No Crema
  • Large cup
  • £1.80

With the size of the cup I had concerns but this was a more than average coffee. Worth visiting again but will ask for it short. (was under construction at time of posting)
