First of all, if you want to find out a little more about the history of this popular drink, head to: http://www.britishcoffeeassociation.org/about_coffee/history_of_coffee/.

Centenary Lounge, Moor Street Station

If you are travelling into Birmingham via Moor Street Station, it is well worth a visit for the beauty of its Art Deco architecture. Centenary Lounge is a cut above the rest in terms of station cafes. The coffee is served in elegant retro glasses.

If you are staying in the Birmingham Serviced Apartments, you will be a stone’s throw away from Damascena in Temple Row West. Check into your apartment from http://birminghamservicedapartments.co.uk/view-our-birmingham-serviced-apartments, and then head over to this coffee shop, which has excellent reviews. The eclectic and varied menu is of Middle Eastern style. The interior has that wow factor; add to this the fact that you will have views of Birmingham Cathedral and there could not be a more perfect place to stop for coffee.

Quarter House Café and Roastery, Bristol Street

There is another branch of this in Oxford. One stand-out feature is the roaster. There are subscription options for customers.

Threes, Martineau Square and Corporation Street

This is worth seeking out for its excellent vegan menu, with the star dish being a great vegan jumbo frankfurter. There are excellent soups, cakes and a good range of coffees.

Home Is Where…, Church Street

This is a deli with a smart bar. The range of milky coffees is of particular note here.

Yorks Espresso Bar, Colmore Row

Notable here is the cold brew. This method takes 14 hours and gives a coffee with a high caffeine content and hit.

Cherry Reds, John Bright Street

This is a beautifully refurbished old building and it serves very good lunches, with alcoholic drinks available from 10:00am. It has a very studenty feel with mismatched furniture.

Finally, Why Not Try?

200 Degrees in Colmore Row

This is a good one to try if you like your coffee milky but strong: the cortado blends espresso and steamed milk.
