Your friendly ethically-minded caffeine dealer. Single origin beans from local roaster De Groot Coffee Co. Second hand books sold to raise funds for Kiva, giving hope and opportunity to those in poverty all over the world.
Book book & Bean has two stalls set up at WOMAD and we have been getting our coffees from the stall in the main food area. The service is spot on - quick, efficient and very good baristas. The coffee is first class not withstanding only in take away cups and the pressure of serving large numbers of patron. Atmosphere is what it is, a stall so fairly ordinary. Over four days will have visited many times.
A very different shop to the others. Cute little shop tucked away, love the book swap on the wall and the cafe feels like an outdoor beer garden. It was hard to find but luckily my wife has been to somewhere near by. The lady working the till (who i assume is the owner) knew most of the people who came in by name, which is really nice. When i ordered my coffee there was a smirk by the barista which said "that is a very protencous order" there was no latte art to speak of (although was in a take away cup). The coffee was good but not amazing and the coffee was lost in the milk. My wife had a white hot chocolate which was really good. Beautiful shop and lovely feel with nice jazz and the kind of place you could come with a book and stay all afternoon. Not the place for groups bigger than about 3.
