Ground Espresso bars are scattered far and wide through out Northern Ireland, with new branches opening all the time. We visited the new Bangor branch again, it's located on the ring road beside Pure Gym. There will also be a second Bangor Ground concession inside the new Next that's being built at Bloomfield Shopping Centre.
The easiest way to see if there is a Ground branch coming to your town is to join their Facebook page.
Last month we visited the new Bangor store and tried their special coffee brew bar experience. This time around I chose from their selection of Suki loose leaf teas, picking Apple Loves Mint.
Suki Tea is blended in Belfast and Ground are proud to source local products when available. If you are unsure which loose leaf tea to go for, ask a barista can you smell the different aromas on offer.
Your tea will be served in a classic Suki Tea Pot, which are also available to buy in store, or on their website.
The food choice at Ground are also sourced locally, and hand finished in store.
Today my choice was a big, soft, lemon & blueberry muffin. Smix had his favourite, Nutella Cake.
So why not support a local coffee shop and visit a Ground Espresso Bar this weekend?
