Coffee at Riptide Espresso & Records, Poole

 Yep, you read that title correctly, Becca now likes coffee. I spent the first 22 and a half years of my life thinking that coffee just tasted like soil water, and whilst it kinda still does, I'm very pleased to announce that not *all* coffee repulses me anymore.

My incredible friend Sam recently opened Riptide Espresso & Records with her boyfriend Aaron and, spoiler: I like it there, A LOT. 

On my second visit, Sam convinced me to order a coffee - a single shot vanilla latte - and I actually really enjoyed it. As someone that has always been a tea girl, this was big news. Whilst we're on the subject of vanilla lattes, I've since ordered one at Costa and it was actually pretty gross... Does this make me some sort of coffee connoisseur now?

Anyway, based in Poole, down by the quay, Riptide Espresso & Records is by far the most Instagrammable coffee shop in the area. With exposed bricks, loads of plants, little palm tree spoons, and rattan light fittings - the attention to detail is amazing. It's the perfect cozy spot if you're looking to take some pictures for the 'gram and have a good cup of coffee.

Now, not only are the drinks great but the brownies really are next level. Made by local company SoCo Brownie Studio, I've tried both the Vegan Biscoff Brownie and the Jammy Dodger Blondie. Both were a solid ten out of ten and I think about them regularly.

If you couldn't already tell, I can't rave about Riptide Espresso & Records more. The decor is amazing, the food and drink is amazing, the staff are amazing, it's a great place. If you haven't already been down and checked it out, I highly recommend doing so!
