Find it lacking, coffee-wise, over on this side of the pond, Husband and Wife team of Alex and Isabella decided to open one of their own, a coffee shop that definitely won't feel out of place even if it was located amongst the many independent coffee shops in London. I'm making this comparison only because my hubby and I love going around exploring the many coffee shops that have been mushrooming up in the big smoke. We've been hoping for one to open in Watford for the longest time so we are very happy that our wish have finally come true!
They are currently serving a sweetish espresso blend, Jailbreak from Hasbean, that's easy on the palette. Coupled with silky smooth textured milk, it was a joy to drink. I had a chance to speak to Alex so I found out that they are planning to bring in some single origin coffee beans and may have a filter coffee going soon. A guest espresso too, perhaps! I'm definitely looking forward to this, as even though I'm not a coffee connoisseur, I enjoy trying out coffee of different profiles and learning more about them.
The decor is simple, clean and comfortable, just the right place for having a coffee whilst catching up with the morning papers or having chat with friends.
Decorated with lots of various photos, articles and sketches, it feels pretty cosy too.
As they have just opened, they want to first concentrate on coffee(of course!), cakes and pastries that have been lovingly made by Isabelle. They'll slowly add some lunch offerings once they'll found their feet.
Am sure this will soon be one of my most frequented places when in Watford and be sure to give it a go when you are in the area!
