The best weekends are those in which you don’t have too many plans; last weekend was one of those. Sunday morning we decided a day trip was in order.

I had recently discovered a photographer named Rick Nunn and in one of his pieces of work, The Edit Station, he mentions a coffee shop in Lincoln called Coffee Aroma. It is listed as “One of the best 10 coffee shops in the UK” (Guardian Newspaper). I wanted to go and try it out and fortunately it’s open on a Sunday.

Lincoln is about an hour and 40 minutes away from Burton but it was well worth the drive. The coffee was fantastic! I had a single origin filter coffee first which was from Ecuador followed by an espresso. They use beans supplied by Has Bean and their espresso blend changes each week. The expertise and care that goes into making each drink is a pleasure to watch and the presentation is fantastic.

We will definitely be returning to Coffee Aroma and if you’re passing through Lincoln it is definitely worth paying a visit.
