On a morning where the temperature evoked nostalgic emotions about my days as a young cub, we ventured to Small Print.
Having heard nothing but positive things about the quality of their product - my expectations were lofty. And I wasn't disappointed.
The double espresso shot was as close to perfection as you'll see. The flavour river-danced its way across this reviewer's tastes buds and delivered a hit that not even Aleem Dar could miss.
Just as you can't make a baby in 1 month by getting 9 women pregnant - some things take time. Our waiting time of 15 minutes was the only aspect of the experience that would constitute a potential drawback.
The fact that this is the only 'negative' aspect of the whole experience merely reflects the quality of coffee as the wait was worth it.
My rating: 17.5 Hugh Jackmans out of 20. What Small Print lack in stature, they make up for in quality of their double espressos. You can expect a ruggedly handsome coffee experience that leaves you questioning why you'd go anywhere else.
Small Print is the place type of place that has more comebacks than Johnny Farnham with a cold sore because they are seriously good. This won't be The Last Time I'll be a customer, that's for sure.
