To be fair, I’ve visited both ben and its sister cafe (littleb) a number of times now. First visit, Saturday morning, the staff were too preoccupied with the computer controlled roaster to produce a decent latte (and we ordered 2 each just to be sure the 1st wasn’t an absent minded botch up). Since then, the quality of coffee produced – either take-out or sit-in hasn’t improved. The house blend is a little too light for my taste, although it does show plenty of complexity. Ben states on their website that they take coffee seriously – Given the number of tide-out , half or over extracted lukewarm coffees I have now had from this barista empire, I think they need to reassess their commitment to producing seriously good coffee. Sorry ben, I have given you a fair chance, but won’t be back again.
