What makes a great coffee shop? Is it the ambience, the coffee offering, the barista, the craft or the shop layout? The perfect shop represents different ideals for different customers. Whatever the focus, there’s normally an area that loses emphasis. If you focus on the food offering the coffee can take a hit. If you focus solely on the coffee, customer service has the potential to drop and if you focus on service and ambience then passionate baristas can become disgruntled.
One coffee house that doesn’t struggle with this balance is Coffee at 33. Situated near the top of Trafalgar Street in Brighton, this stripped-back shop is music-free, meaning that whether you’re looking to sit in peace and read, or plan to catch up with friends, the atmosphere is always peaceful and never intrusive.
From locals looking for the perfect pour-over to day visitors wanting a takeaway latte, the baristas at 33 are always willing to talk coffee and make time for each and every customer, ensuring they are informed and happy with their coffee. Roasting their own coffee also ensures an expert level of knowledge when it comes to helping you select your ideal brew.
Looking for food? Like everything they do, 33 offer a minimal, carefully selected choice of cakes and sandwiches and, with a rustic interior that’s typified by their coffee sack covered seating area, this may be your new favourite coffee shop. Take the time and enjoy a great coffee made by some of the city’s most knowledgeable baristas.
