Charles A Hallas, Coffee Merchant, Skipton

I have driven past Charles Hallas Coffee Merchant’s on Skipton’s Gargrave Road a hundred times and never stopped for a look, until now! What a fantastic coffee lovers delight, an Aladins Cave of taste & aroma!

When I called they were just cooling a batch of freshly roasted beans from the ancient coffee roaster.

The staff are knowledgable and very friendly, I quizzed the shop assistant and was given a guided tour of the shop and the process, from selecting the green beans, to the length of roast and the different grades of grind for your coffee machine.  I left with some perfect freshly ground coffee for my Aga top Bialetti coffee pot, a seventy year old Italian design icon by the way!

Bialetti Coffee Pot on the Aga

I bought 250g of Bruzzi Espresso (strong yet mild, no bitterness) and Espresso Creama (yet to be tried) freshly ground before me and both for less than £8, prices vary from £2 to £14 per 250g, the service & expertise, ambience and aromas in the shop are excellent and free.

Please, please don’t buy your coffee from the supermarket, call in at Charles Hallas and experience a proper shop, run by proper people and enjoy proper coffee!
