Random lunchtime detour to The Mortimer Arms. Bean to cup automatic machine but well looked after, not an ideal start for a coffee review hunt but that means more time on the motorbike.
Smokey, though not a bitter taste. Something artificial in flavour, perhaps from the water which seems quite chlorinated locally, but no aftertaste. A smooth and easy cup to enjoy in the sporadic sunshine we've been having. Supplied minted🌿
Spotted a couple of pubs north of here into Romsey that are worth a drive to investigate. Hoping for an espresso machine next time.
