Twoday is a petite roastery and shop which offers a small range of drink-in and take-away coffees.
Despite a lack of tables and chairs, I’m very happy to give Twoday a spot in Cosy Coffee Shops.
It is owned and run by Frank and Petra Deane. They enjoyed some top notch coffee while living in Japan and decided Bristol needed the same.
Petra made me an espresso and it was delicious. I took it with me as I wandered the shop, checking out mugs (hundreds of them!), along with the coffee equipment and beans, including green (unroasted) beans.
It’s very nicely arranged.
Most of Twoday’s money is made supplying beans to local cafés and restaurants, but they won’t sell to anyone: it’s a pre-requisite that their clients take an interest in coffee. There are also plenty of local fans of good coffee who pop in to collect their weekly roast (one came in to collect a small regular order while I was there). And of course there’s the likes of me stopping by for a quick drink.
The name comes from the fact that no coffee is sold that was roasted more than two days previously.
Twodays roast some great coffee and the shop is a mecca for anyone who enjoys a hot brew.
The excellent (and tiny) range of drinks on offer makes it enough of a coffee shop for me, even if it can’t be called “cosy”.
A quick note about Baristas, 29 Victoria Street, Bristol BS1 6AA…
I was looking forward to visiting Baristas on Victoria Street, a place which has been recommended by readers. Happily, one of the staff was getting married that day, but their joy was certainly outweighed by the sadness that swept over me when I noticed it was closed. I’d recommend taking a look (and letting me know what it’s like, please).
