Coffee Enquiry XL: Timberyard

Don't worry, your bitterness is safe with me
Elaine Benes (Seinfeld episode “The Fix Up”)

Timberyard is a retro, vintage, 80s style café with two locations. We visited the one just a few steps away from Covent Garden or Leicester Square. Chemex, filter brews, and tea for drinks. Food wise the options are some traditional breakfasts, bake croissants, donuts, cakes, or soup, quiche, and grilled sandwiches for lunch and supper.

The place
We got as usual a macchiato and flat white. Ok coffee, a bit bitter, no latte art in ours but saw others with a lovely hearts and rosettes, probably bad luck, or the barista got lazier for our order.

Coffee time
Espresso Machine: La Marzocco
Beans: Has Beans
Score: 3/5

The Jabberwocky blend they use is quite particular, if they don’t get it right you will get sour and bitter flavours. I think that’s what happened with the macchiato as the flat was nice and with good balance.
