KILLER FLAT WHITE

There is an awesome independent coffee scene in Birmingham and all the coffee shops are a little network where they all support each other, so it's lovely little community. I visit them all for different reasons whether it's because they serve great brunch, do the best teas or make a killer flat white. I may not know much about the ins and outs of coffee beans but I can definitely recognise a good coffee and Faculty is one of my favourite spots for coffee and cake. Faculty is teeny tiny and you can see at a very quick glance whether there is a space for you and your friends to sit. Situated in Piccadilly Arcade it is a stones throw from New Street Station and not far from the Bullring shopping centre. Their coffees are served in mint cups and they make use of Science beakers for things like their V60 coffees which look pretty cool served in flasks. My friend adores their peppermint tea and raves on about their tangerine ginger tea too. Me? Well I rarely opt for anything else other than a flat white and they are perfect here. I should also mention their selection of cakes. We had a flapjack-brownie creation (genius) and of course it was a winning combination. Do you have a favourite place for coffee? I'm always making notes of great places to visit when on my travels so let me know!

    Those pastries look yum!


    I don't have a favorite place for coffee but we have a Toby's Estate in my office building where I get a long black when I don't feel like having free vending coffee machine.

  8. I really like this infographic: http://thumbnails-visually.netdna-ssl.com/38-ways-to-make-a-perfect-coffee_53f5ef2b62be0.jpg so a Flat white is an expresso with steamed milk :)

  12. Yes definitely! This is great for a coffee and chatter. Have you been to Yorks? That's a great place to sit, eat from their cooked food menu or even work for a few hours.

  14. Yes, I always try and research great places to stop for coffee or a bite to eat as coffee shops like these are always very much part of the local community. Food/drink is definitely high priority when I am travelling somewhere new!
