This is the first in series of blog posts where 6/8 Kafe visits other independent coffee shops around the UK; often those that share some connection with 6/8 - more often than not, they will use the same supplier of our luxurious coffee beans, Hasbean.
Fitting this profile is The Shrewsbury Coffeehouse, a relatively large and cosy coffee shop nestled in Shropshire. Open for only a couple of weeks after this post is being written, the Coffeehouse is already a stellar success; packed with customers, excellent coffee and stellar reviews by local media.
Run by Jess (also Events Coordinator) and Chris (Operations Manager/Head Barista), the team run a tight ship in a comfortable and relaxed environment.
The coffee they use is Hasbean’s Jabberwocky, a bright blend that works really well with milk - especially recommend the Flat White - beautifully prepared with top latte art on a La Marzocco GB/5. Along with that the tea is excellent (great glass tea pots too) and a fresh range of sandwiches & cakes.
They are looking to expand their downstairs area to host gigs and other events. Well worth checking out if you love your coffee and since they’re only about an hour of Birmingham (and right next to Shrewsbury train station) you’ve no excuse.
6/8 Kafe hopes to work closely with these guys and hopefully you’ll hear a lot more about them in the future.
