Last week, when I was busy taking photos for The Crack‘s street style section, I kept running into the lovely fellas from Ouseburn Coffee Co. I’ve sampled their coffee a few times now at Tynemouth Market and have been meaning to buy a bag of their Foundry No 1 Roast, so when I bumped into them in Durham market place I had no excuse not to!
For those of you who don’t already know who Ouseburn Coffee Co are, they’re a lovely little independent roastery based in heart of Newcastle’s creative scene, Ouseburn Valley. They were established earlier this year and are Newcastle’s first independent roastery.. and you know how much I like to support North East businesses. I can tell you now that these lot are definitely the newest of Newcastle’s institutions. Knowing already that they make excellent coffee, I couldn’t wait to get my bag of Foundary number 1 home… only to remember that my delightful little brother had smashed our cafetiere only days before. Such is life.
So anyway, after finally remembering to buy myself another one, I just got round to sampling my coffee and I have to say, it’s just as nice as I remembered. Having slept in earlier (if you’re reading this, Rob: I’m still very sorry!) I spent this morning working from home on bits and pieces for The Crack Mini Guide to the North East. After sleeping in and feeling groggy all day, there’s nothing like a decent cup of coffee to wake you up and keep you working!
Oh gosh, independent roasteries are the best!! It feels like they put so much more love into their coffee, from the beans to when it gets poured into your cup. <3
