9Bar coffee Grey street Newcastle – the bar has been raised

Standard

Slight delay in getting this review but on 3rd November we visited 9 bar on Grey street next door to the theatre royal. The shop is quirky with what looks old school furniture it had a nice area outside to sit as well, but not really the weather for it at this time of year. On the day we went I think that they were serving ‘Bernard’ by colour coffee. I think that this is the blend that they serve on a regular basis.

As we have done with all of the other places so far we tried and scored a flat white so the results are below

Taste 8.75/10
Flavour 8.25/10
Aroma 7.25/9
Temperature 2.5/3
Appearance (design on top) 4.75/6
Consistency 2.75/3
Smoothness 7/9

Total 41.25/50

As you can see from the score above 9 bar has set the new bench mark for flat white is Newcastle. It Perfect amount of milk. Good intense coffee flavour balanced with some sweetness and floral notes some of us also thought that the coffee had a toffee/caramel flavour

We will definitely come back and we also love the custom 9bar cups

There are no lines or comparisons needed for this coffee, this is simply a great coffee that you must go and try when you are in Newcastle
