Welcome to the new Cosy Coffee Shops

2 June 2013

Cosy Coffee Shops has been spring-cleaned. It’s a lean, mean, coffee machine, bringing to your attention the very loveliest independent coffee shops in the UK and beyond, just for the love of it.

Ouseburn Coffee, Newcastle

Urban Coffee Co, Birmingham

Tamper Coffee, Sheffield









One careful owner since 2006, Cosy Coffee Shops is still at the heart of the UK coffee scene. This is the most exciting time for coffee in Britain, with incredible coffee shops and hugely talented baristas spreading out from the London heartland and tickling the tastebuds of the regions.

As always, this blog is more or less 50% about great coffee, 50% about warm smiles, comfy chairs and atmosphere. And now it’s not just about coffee shops, with a new coffee blog on the way and more to come.

We hope you like the new site!

    I like the new design, yay! But it’s a bit more difficult to search by city, unless I’m blind 🙂 Is there a section about London?
    Btw. have you tried Tower47 in Chalk Farm? It’s a mix of art gallery, music store, and café and their coffee is great.

      Hi Sabine, thanks so much for the feedback, that’s really helpful. For London coffee shops, head to – this isn’t at all obvious, we’ll see if we can improve things. Thanks also for the recommendation, we hadn’t heard of it. Tom

      Sabine, just to let you know, we’ve followed your suggestion and added a page which lists all coffee shops by region:

    awesome site. I found a place called hot numbers in Cambridge thanks to you! there really is a dearth of good coffee places in Cambridge, everywhere else is bland faux-italian cafes

    Hey, nice site.
    Check out Embassy East if you are ever in Hoxton. Brilliant coffee, exception food especially the “meat sandwich” and nice smiles too. It’s my favourite at the mo. It was started by 3 Ex-flat white/milk bar guys.
    Have you thought about chucking out an app to help fund the site, I would get it for sure.

      Hi Waz, thanks for the tip. Yeah, we’ve considered an app – it’s not on the cards at the mo, but maybe in the future! Cheers.
