A short stroll away from Seven Dials sits Stoney Point, formerly known as Mr. Wolfe. Upon entering, it’s immediately striking that the high ceilings, calming music and airy space make it the perfect place to catch up with friends, or sit alone and enjoy a book and a coffee. The handwritten prices on the chalkboard behind the machine coupled with a minimalist, wooden aesthetic, give Stoney Point a homemade feel.
As a standard, they try to keep an Ethiopian coffee in stock all year round when possible, and we tried their double espresso made using the Organic Espresso from Monmouth Coffee; made up of beans from Suke Quto (Ethiopia), Froilan Mamani (Bolivia) and El Pastoral (Nicaragua). Offering a lemon zest aroma from the off with a silky mouthfeel, it produced a sweetly tart flavour initially before really coming to life as it cooled, with notes of pear and orange leaping on the palette, reminiscent of a fruit tea.
With plug sockets, comfy seating and some delicious coffee, as well as the occasional guest roast, Stoney Point is one Brighton coffee shop that is too often overlooked.
