Coffee Enquiry XXII: Climpson & Sons

Of course you do, but you’re imagining a guy you like, not a guy who goes, oh no, I don’t drink coffee late at night. If I call her now, she’s going to think I’m too needy. Women don’t want to see need. They want a take charge guy, a colonel, a Kaiser, a tsar
George Costanza (Seinfeld episode "The Phone Message") 

The other day in Broadway Market I decided to visit Climpson & Sons. They started as a market stall known as Burgil Coffee. Similar to other independent coffee houses Ian Burgess after returning from living in Australia, he decided to bring the coffee quality to London. A couple years on the market circuit until they opened their store in Broadway Market keeping the bytcher’s shop original name. 

The place
These days not only a coffee shop but also Coffee Roasters with a range of single estate coffees and blends on offering. The place quite small but cozy, apart from coffee you can have breakfast and lunch., buy single origin or the seasonal blend to take back home. 

Simple sitting
I got a macchiato prepared with their summer seasonal blend (Cost Rica, Dominican Republic, Brazil, and Ethiopia). Strong flavour, good after taste, really nice, imagine they are purist as no latte art. 

Espresso Machine: La Marzocco
Beans: Climpson & Sons
Score: 4/5

Really nice coffee, try it if you’re nearby.
