I'll be in Winchester in April.  Do any of our UK folks (or UK travellers) have recommendations for good coffee shops in the area?  I came across Baristas Coffee Winchester (http://baristasofwinchester.co.uk/) that looks good from my computer.  Any thoughts on this shop?  Any others?

I also found Winchester Coffee Roasters, but they look more wholesale.

The recommendation for the shop in Bath was fantastic, so I'm hoping to repeat my experience.

Thanks!

Greg

Thanks KLIX!

It was definitely worth the visit; I went every day for a week.  :-)  Most of the time the coffee was good.  The beans are a little more dark roasted than I like, but I think that's more of a build on the European espresso style.  I have a bag of beans at home now, and I am making fantastic milk drinks with them.  Glad I was able to find the shop, and I recommend it to others in the area too.

Hi Greg,

It sounds as though this comes too late, but I can also recommend Earl of Sandwich on Jewry Street for a good cup. They use locally roasted beans, and the staff are friendly.

I hope you enjoyed your trip!

Rob
