The last time I was in Brighton, I had a cappuccino off the Small Batch kiosk outside Brighton Station. I was looking forward to one today, and was disappointed to find no kiosk.
Down on the seafront, it turned cool and started to rain. I had intended to walk out along Brighton Pier, but feeling cold, I decide to head inland and take a slow wander back to Brighton Station via a coffee shop.
I had intended Pelicano, as not far from the station, popped in Small Batch on the way.
I have often popped in Small Batch, but never stayed and had a coffee, as always busy.
Today was no exception, but thought I would try a cappuccino.
I was disappointed cocoa was added. Nothing wrong with the coffee, but loses the flavour of the coffee. I mentioned this to the barista after complimenting on an otherwise excellent coffee. He gave me a complimentary card to have a coffee next time passing by.
I picked up a bag of coffee.
A wide range of brew methods at the brew bar, pour over, Japanese syphon.
I like the ultra modern style of Small Batch, what I do not like is that it is harsh and noisy, not an ambience within which to relax. Maybe that is why people sit outside.
On my last visit, I asked of Standart, Small Batch are listed as a distributor. I asked again. No luck.
