Arete101 reviewed Short Black Panther
Went in this afternoon with a couple of discerning friends. We all tried an espresso in the Colombian single origin which itself was from Single Origin Roasters made by the owner, we all agreed its was smooth with low acidity and a creamy mouth feel with obvious chocolate tones at the back end. I then asked for a piccolo. This was made by the owner's brand new barista who was quick to bring it while giving me a warm welcome. The piccolo was on their Crompton Road blend from 5 Senses and was on the cooler side which I prefer, cute little rosetta on the top and stong hazelnut flavour dominating my palate, it was like drinking a smooth nutella coffee. Must admit the shop was quiet when we came in which gave me time to soak in the vibe. Love the panther mural on the wall.
