Coffee in north Norfolk
We opened The Black Apollo Coffee House in Holt, north Norfolk in the summer of 2014. Situated on the bustling High Street of Holt, we focus on serving delicious coffee in north Norfolk. Our coffee is roasted in our micro roastery just a few hundred yards from the shop.
We also offer a wide selection artisan cakes and pastries from local bakers. Alison, of The Sugared Rose Cake Company in Holt supplies us with her delicious Victoria sponge, chocolate sponge and lemon sponge. Alex of The Norfolk Patisserie supplies us with lots of amazing cakes and bakes, including a fantastic orange pudding cake. Pye Baker of Norwich supply our amazing pastries and bread.
We also serve a variety of light lunches, made to order.
We are only a small establishment but we alway do our utmost to accommodate. During the summer months we a have a couple of tables and chairs outside in our little yard, to the rear of the coffee shop.
Our house blend is Holkham Bay and our guest blend is usually our Marsh Harrier. Both blends change frequently depending upon what coffee is in season. The Marsh Harrier tends to be a more fruity, adventurous blend.
As well as the espresso based coffee we also offer brewed to order filter coffee using the Aeropress, V60 and Coffee Gator. Our shelves are also adorned with home brewing equipment and bags of our own retail coffee. Our 250g bags of coffee are extremely popular with visitors and locals alike. The bags contain whole beans but we are very happy to grind to suit your coffee making equipment at home.
We also cater for those of you who prefer tea. We have 12 different teas for you to choose from, all of which are loose leaf and served in a glass teapot on a slate tray. The Breakfast blend and Blue Lady being particular favourites with our customers.
Our toast with real butter and jam or marmalade is a very popular light breakfast for many of our early morning customers as are the large freshly made, warm croissants.
