Hard Lines– Matt & Sophie's wondering bastion of specialty coffee and oh-so-groovy musical wax – is a very welcome permanent addition to the already fantastic Castle Emporium (a city centre hub for pop-ups, boutiques and feel-good independence).
Once inside, you'll find yourself enveloped with the aroma of freshly percolated single-origin beans and a soft, rhythmic record player crackle. The chipboard caffeine station doubles up as a record cabinet, too, so - if you're anything like us - the prospect of flicking through a few EPs whilst waiting for your V60 to finish its dripping should be nothing short of irresistible.
It's a lo-fi treat for the senses, but - as you'll discover - Outpost are undeniably high-tec on coffee (provenance, proper process and a premium product are all of paramount importance).
