Week beginning March 4th - Kaffeine introduces the coffee flight

Our lead barista Shaun came up with the idea, to use on weekends for our guest espresso and also to help in practice for the 2013 UK Barista Championships.

We are very proud of our guest espresso weekends, featuring some of the worlds best roasters from across the UK, Europe and even Australia. Roasters this year alone have included Solberg and Hansen, Tim Wendleboe, Coffee Collective, Square Mile, Koppi and Workshop.

We are also very proud of our cascara palate cleanser that we serve with our short drinks. An infusion of Square Mile cascara with a touch of Rare Tea Company Earl Grey (and a secret ingredient) and we have a delightful and refreshing accompaniment to our short espresso drinks.

So therefore, how can we best profile their coffee on a weekend for those who are out to try a little something different  as well as add in the cascara? How can we also provide our customers with something different, something interesting and something that shows we have put some thought into it? Shaun came up with the coffee flight. A single shot espresso, a single shot cappuccino in a 5 oz cup and a piccolo glass of cascara.

This gives the customer a chance to start by refreshing their palate, to enjoy the espresso, to savour the traditional style cappuccino and finally, to refresh their palate.

It is £5.00 for a coffee flight of guest espresso and they have proven so popular that we then introduced them during the week for Red Brick for £4.50.

It's delightful, a really lovely way to have an adventure with coffee and to try something different (and we believe it looks great too). Please try one next time you are in, we are sure you will enjoy it.

Please enjoy this weeks menu, as we have enjoyed putting it together for you.
