Friday 23rd we went further afield and visited Central bean coffee house at Gallowgate

Again we had 5 people reviewing flat white @ £2.25 and some of us also tried some food this time

The place itself is really airy and open with a good amount of seating. There are plenty of cakes, pastries and sandwiches on offer and nice touches like a board with the names of the staff working that day. We did our best to confuse the people taking out order for food (not on purpose) and they still managed to get our order right

We are not really rating food at this stage, but the panini’s tasted great and the muffins were good too

Overall the marks are below
Taste 7.5/10
Flavour 7/10
Aroma 6.5/9
Temperature 3/3
Appearance (design on top) 5.5/6
Consistency 3/3
Smoothness 7/9

Total 39.5/50

Overall the flat white was a tasty and enjoyable, it is earthy and nutty with a nice aroma and had just the right amount of milk. The Appearance was excellent and the temperature perfect and the Consistency was good.

This coffee was definitely like a German car such as like BMW. Quality and comfortable and also just a bit of excitement, not quite a super car but one you are more that happy to brag to your friends about
