Paper Cafe, Bristol - Barista Recommends

Paper Cafe is committed to serving quality crafted coffee from James Gourmet who are based in the Wye Valley. Profits from every cup of coffee brought goes to supporting the local creatives, workshops and projects that are happening at Paper Arts. We source as much as possible locally such as the bread we use from Herbert's Bakery and the tasty treats from Cakesmiths. Sit back, relax and enjoy the surroundings of the gallery space and Co-Lab hosting the creative talents of Bristol. So with no further ado here are Imogens pairings...

Origin/Name: (Ethiopia) Suke Quto
Roastery: James Gourmet Coffee, Ross-on-Wye
Beverage: Filter
Brew method: Aeropress
Notes: melon sweetness, ripe and juicy, prune like with brown sugar

Cake: Super caramel slice
Temp: ambient
Notes: nutty and sweet with a sharp edge from the cranberries

Reason: Suko quto is beautifully ripe and juicy so to add to its sweetness it’s only right to go with this caramel treat. With the addition of these cranberries and the crunch of the pumpkin seeds it makes this pairing a delicious and light treat. …………………………………………………………………………………………

Origin/Name: Ethiopia, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Mexico/ Caffe Naturelle
Roastery: James Gourmet Coffee, Ross-on-Wye
Beverage: Flat White
Notes: Light roasted blend, balanced juicy citrus and cocoa notes

Cake: Raspberry Bakewell
Temp: Ambient
Notes: Nutty, jammy and mourish

Reason: We use Caffe Naturelle as our house blend and when milk is added it makes the espresso extremely nutty and rich. To accentuate that nuttiness we say to pair it with the raspberry bakewell to make a fine flavour duo. ……………………………………………………………………......................

Origin/Name: Ehtiopia, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Mexico/ Caffe Naturelle
Roastery: James Gourmet Coffee
Beverage: Long Black
Notes: Light espresso with citrus and cocoa notes

Cake: Espresso Cheesecake Brownie
Temp: Chilled Notes: Espresso, Chocolate and Vanilla

Reason: When this espresso cheesecake brownie came into our lives we didn’t think life could get much better. Rich in flavour, the pairing of chocolate and espresso make it deeply indulgent especially with the addition of cheesecake on top. Have with a Long black to add to that hint of espresso that runs through whilst not being too overbearing
