Chemex

Let’s talk about Chemex. In simple words it is a coffeemaker. In a bit more technical, it is a pour over technique that uses a percolation method to get you a good quality coffee. I will admit that I don’t brew with it every day and maybe I should. But simply there are easier methods….

The Journey Of Dark Woods Coffee

“On the weather-beaten moors, on the outskirts of Huddersfield, where the Dark Woods Coffee was born” We slowly drive on the edge of the Peak district, enjoying every moment of snowy hills until we reach Huddersfield – a small northern town with an astonishing landscape and a surprisingly good coffee scene. Almost in the middle…

Speciality Coffee & Upshot Espresso

“Wine, gin, beer – these are the drinks that are crafted and made ready for you to enjoy. With coffee it’s grown, picked, delivered, roasted and even then you can mess up the end product before you savour it. It’s an art.” I quietly stood outside, admiring the view before taking the picture of a…

The Wonderful Story of The Holt

On a cold Saturday morning we set off, running slightly late, and with a few wrong turns we finally ended up at the place we wanted to visit for a few months now. The Holt. The reason we were excited to see what’s inside – well literally, we heard a lot of great things. We…

Tamper at Sellers Wheel

Before I moved to Sheffield, Tamper was the first place I visited. It might sound silly, but I think it could have been part of the reason I wanted to live here! I loved the coffee, food and vibe that it had. And it still feels the same. Two years have passed and the Kiwi Cafe…

But First. Coffee.

My first brew was the same as most. Parents drinking a black, mud-like liquid right before going to work. With such a delicious smell yet intensely unappealing taste, I never understood why people liked it. I never even tried it… until a few years ago. It was December 2015, around Christmas time. Unfortunately, I was not…

Eve’s Kitchen 

  Sharrow Vale Road is no stranger to amazing independent eateries – and we’ve tried a fair few. Nestled in amongst your deli’s, restaurants and pizzerias, is probably the most heavenly doughnut shop and artisan cafe you will find in Sheffield. Eve’s Kitchen is a beautiful place to stop and indulge. It’s small, cosy and…
