THROUGH MY LENS: POP UP CAFE, DEAL / by Peter Sladen

A KAMILA COFFEE REVIEW

Back in May I was visiting some Heritage sites; Deal & Walmer castles. I did my coffee shop homework the night before and I chose the Pop Up Cafe in Deal as a place for a break in between visiting the two sites. Situated in the city centre, opposite the famous pound shop, the Pop Up Cafe offers an ecstatic and pleasant experience. The walls were covered with some really cool artwork; one of the posters looked like Tretchikoff’s painting “Chinese Girl”. I noticed that they use coffee beans which are roasted in Margate from Curve Coffee and was excited to see what they had to offer. After a good chat with the baristas I ordered an espresso with a filter coffee to follow. I ended up trying two of their filters - the first one Juan Saldarriaga, Colombian was mellow and citrusy. I enjoyed it so much that my friend bought me a bag of the beans. I also tried the Rwandan espresso and an Ethiopian filter to go. I will definitely go back to Pop Up coffee as they know how to brew a decent cup. It was a good coffee experience.
