Overlooking the beautiful Palmeira Square as you enter Hove, Down To Earth Coffee is the first coffee shop to take advantage of this idyllic setting, and this new coffee hot spot is just as peaceful inside.
With wooden slats lining the counter, seats, shelves and more, this shop offers an extremely laid-back vibe with welcoming staff and chilled tunes.
While they offer a range of rotating guest espressos and filter options, they also roast their own coffee in cooperation with Pharmacie Coffee Roasters in Hove, which allows them to finely roast their coffee to suit their flavour palette. This not only allows them to offer detailed analysis of the coffee’s taste and mouthfeel but also allows them to help you match it with the milk or food they have on offer.
During our visit we tried an espresso from Strangers Coffee using their Fine City blend, which produced a super sweet aroma before creating notes of pear and citrus, cooling down to reveal berry flavours and a creamy mouthfeel that coasts the mouth to reveal a very balanced coffee.
With picturesque views, great coffee and a relaxed atmosphere, this is just what the area needed. Pay a visit and find out for yourself.
