Gamma has the enviable position of living across the road from local coffee roaster Mr Eion. Gavin, the shop's owner, has worked with Mr Eion to create a Gamma coffee blend and offers espresso-based coffees as well as a range of Mr Eion retail bags of beans. While Gavin won't give away his secret recipe, the Gamma house blend includes Indian Tiger Stripes and Brasil Daterra Sunrise among others and is big and rich.
You place your order at the counter and a delightful coffee will be brought to you at the high bench seating in the front shop window.
On the bicycle front, enthusiasts can expect some serious gear. The large, light-filled room is jammed with bikes and related paraphernalia that will tempt most into considering the pastime if they're not already addicted. Gamma also pffer a custom-build service to create the bike that's perfect for you.
This is a nice spot to drop by for a brew and, if you're a cyclist, well worth putting on your route.
