Hasbean coffee and lots of bread and thats about it - on Little Clarendon St Oxford.

Not convinced they have everything right but they are not far off and the coffee was lovely.

Did you not try Colombia Coffee Roasters in the Covered Market? I've heard only good things. Can't believe you were so nearby!

We did try them at a market a year or two ago and were not that impressed. It was expensive and its also horses for courses, in that I didn't like their blend. (It's not them its me etc...)

My brother lives in Somertown and these guys are within walking distance which was also a contributing factor. The aim had been missing bean but they were shut at this time of year.

Some interesting cafes around that part of Oxford. Would be great to have the time to explore them in more detail.

I have some good friends based near Summertown, small world. If I recall correctly, there is a branch of Natural Bread in Woodstock as well.

Yes, there is certainly a decent 'scene' coming together around the city, though it's only by word of mouth that I know of it. To think, it was a real coffee wasteland not long ago.

I believe The Missing Bean roast their own now, having previously had a medium dark roast from a fairly high end commercial roaster whose name entirely escapes me.

There are at least three indie roasters in Oxfordshire too.

The missing bean have a second site where they roast, and also serve coffee. Looking on their website its at Newtec place off Magdalen road

Oxford is my home town but I go there so rarely that I don't have a feel for it at all.
