A light industrial estate in Cirencester is probably not the first place you’d look for a high quality coffee shop, but that’s just where you’ll find Rave Coffee in Stirling Works, Love Lane.
Suppliers of wholesale coffee, Rob and Vikki Hodge also sell coffee, tea and cakes to individual customers to drink in or takeaway, and have built up a loyal following of local workers as well as customers who visit from further afield.
In the front of the store is a coffee counter graced by a beautiful Expobar Diamant coffee machine, a couple of comfy sofas and stools and a few shelves displaying coffee syrups and teas available to purchase.
Behind a full width wall of clear glass is the working area where Rob roasts and blends sacks of coffee beans to meet customer requirements.
So good was the coffee we enjoyed on our first visit, we made a second visit the very next day. Those of who usually have sugar in our coffee were particularly impressed with the lack of bitterness in our full flavour coffees.
If you’re in the general area, would definitely recommend you pay a visit, especially if you also want to buy some beans or ground coffee to enjoy at home.
