With Kiwi influences and kiwi food Tamper Coffee brings a taste of New Zealand’s best to the independent coffee shop scene in Sheffield. The pride and joy of the business is, rightly so, their coffee. With a variety of different brews and blends available Tamper is worth a visit if only for a cup of their coffee.
Tamper Coffee has two cafes; a larger branch called the sellers wheel and a smaller shop in Westfield terrace.
The sellers wheel Tamper Coffee is hidden away in a 19th century former silversmiths in Sheffield’s Industries Quarter. It’s clever and contemporary interior allows the café to accommodate for its popularity, although a wait for a table is to be expected during lunch times. The lunch and brunch menu of kiwi cuisine is regularly updated to provide fresh and seasonal ingredients. Of course, there is a large coffee selection and a choice of baked goods from Sheffield’s Depot Bakery.
On Friday nights sellers wheel is open till 10pm for cocktails, craft beers and wine as well as a monthly menu of small sharing plates. Located a two-minute walk from the train station makes it a good spot of an arriving or leaving drink.
In the centre of Sheffield is Tamper Coffee’s smaller café on Westfield Terrace. With more of a focus on the coffee, the menu is small and limited but compensated by the large selection of Depot Bakery cakes and pastries. Being a very intimate coffee shop just off the busy Division street, it’s often best for a coffee to go but none the less a very charming environment if you do find a seat.
