How many times have I spoken about coffee on here? Probably far too many already, but I will whole heartedly admit that I’ve fully jumped on the artisan, flashy, hipster coffee scene despite being none of those things myself. Let’s just call it one of the simple pleasures that help my week run smoothly.
For a fairly small city Norwich sure has an abundance of independent coffee shops to choose from. I mentioned that Strangers Coffee House was a good place to head to, but the newest of the scene is Artel. Not only is it the newest, it’s also the smallest – possibly ever! With room enough for about four/five/six people and serving only the freshest roasts from Nude Espresso, Artel know they’re coffee craft. It’s quite a treat of a coffee shop, offering a cosy spot, a friendly barista and even a selection of pastries and donut’s to choose from. I know my boyf would fully recommend the salted caramel.
A friend of mine actually helped out with the branding which is just as much of a treat to look at – note the stamp card featuring hanging plants, just like the ones hanging from the ceiling. Genius! If you’re in the area, pop in for a little caffeinated beverage, squeeze on into the little bench seat and make some new friends. It’s worth it.
