Qype: Taylor St Baristas in Brighton

BrightonEating & DrinkingCafes & Coffee ShopsCafes

If you don’t know the name, then it’s probably because you know Taylor St as “that great little coffee place inside Travelbag on Queen’s Road.” At least, that’s how I always referred to them – until they (very recently) opened their very own cafe opposite Community Base further up Queen’s Road.

Taylor St Baristas is a family-owned Australian coffee company, who take their coffee SERIOUSLY. On their website, they say: “In our view, the barista is the most important thing standing between you and a good coffee. Like a chef, the barista’s knowledge, skills and techniques critically affect the quality of the product he’s preparing. For this reason, our baristas are exhaustively and relentlessly trained and bring, on average, 2-3 years experience to their craft.” That’s why, without a doubt, this is probably the best place to go for coffee in all of Brighton, especially now that they have their own place in this prime people-watching location (highly important for a coffee shop).

Yesterday, I had the BEST cup of Rooibos tea ever in here – loose leaf tea served in these brilliant teabag-style pouches (I cannot find them anywhere – but I need some!) I even drank it without milk (which is a first for me) but when they didn’t serve me milk, I was afraid to ask for it for fear of tainting this wonderful tea (they know their stuff, after all). You know what? It was blimmin’ delicious.
