Dear, Coffee Lovers...
I'll admit it, I'm a full time coffee addict. Nothing screams more fun than being a caffeine addict. If you're a student reading this, chances are you're one too. Most of us stay hydrated with coffee rather than some H2Om more like h2 NO. Now that my love for coffee has been declared, let me show you some of the gems hidden away in Manchester, serving nothing but the best of the best.
Here are my top 5 coffee places you can hit, whether you're just dropping in or wanting to get warm and cosy.
- Takk - this is an independent coffee company with three outlets based in Manchester. Takk's aim is to provide a welcoming space to work, meet, talk, and dream up some big ideas. It is Nordic inspired and can I just say, I'll happily sit here and down coffee after coffee. You can try out their brunch too!
- ManCoCo - is an artisan micro coffee roaster situated in the vibrant heart of Manchester City Centre. The serve a variety of drinks all prepared with their freshly roasted coffee beans. They specialise in hand roasting traceable and ethically sourced green coffees from around the world. If you're into you're strong coffees then give this place a go!
- Foundation Coffee Shop - I mean their name says it all. Even their motto is ‘Coffee is Everything’. Foundation Coffee House is one of Manchester’s largest independent coffee shops. It's owned and operated by NoChintz – a creative studio based in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. A place too has to be comfortable in order for you to properly enjoy their coffee and let me tell you, their interior is nothing but beautiful.
- Pot Kettle Black - This boutique coffee house situated in the beautiful Victorian building, Barton Arcade, uses Workshop’s ‘Cult of Done’, for their standard Espresso, Piccolo, Flat While, Latte and Cappuccino. To add to it, they have Friday evening acoustic sessions, a book club and rooftop fitness work-outs to the sustainable coffee offering and snack menu.
- Moose Coffee - Moose is an American & Canadian influenced breakfast and brunch experience with an authentic short order menu and premium espresso-based coffee. After a slurp of their coffee made from 100% Arabica beans, try their Eggs Benedict (titled ‘New York Moose’).
On a side note or more of an end note- yes it's hard no to indulge in coffee everything 24/7 but it is important to remember that a lot of coffee is not good for us and while it may help you get through some days ending in Y, we gotta put a limit on it. (I know, sad but true.)
