One of my favourite things to do when I visit a new city is seek out their independent third-wave coffeeshops. One of the best placed I've discovered over the years is Tilt, in Birmingham. They also do craft ales here, so it's a really nice place to pay a regular visit.
@earfolds I recently rediscovered an old coffee shop called Billy Goat Cafe that I thought had closed down but turns out it just moved.
This only problem is they had these seriously addictive cinnamon rolls and I'm trying to be better about my diet.
But knowing they're still out there...so close...
@wolfin the first wave refers to standard coffee as it was first introduced, the second wave refers to places like Starbucks and single-origin beans, and the third refers to things like micro-roasters. It's a bit like the difference between, say, Belgian beer and microbrewery-made craft beer.
