Mike and Joanne began their coffee enterprise in 2007 at a railway station in the Cotswold’s, eventually operating three take away outlets, and quickly became known for their cheery welcome and conversation even at 5.30 in the morning!
Establishing Diplomats Barista in 2014, Mike and Joanne set out to create a unique coffee outlet at the iconic TWO Snowhill in Birmingham’s Colmore Business District. Giving a warm welcome to a civilised modern space, in which customers can enjoy what Mike and Joanne believe is one of the best Italian style coffees, as well as a range of excellent teas and quality local food, fresh throughout the day.
Great coffee and a great team. I would recommend others to visit and take the time to enjoy the food and artwork on show.
The unique architectural design, which was a fusion of personal taste, the iconic style of the Snowhill building and inspiration of the pre-existing pipework, offers a work space away from work, a space for meetings and a space to relax surrounded by superb art.
Our unique cantilever counter combines functionality with a bit of magic, giving the impression that the coffee machines (all 140kgs of them) defy the laws of gravity.
The cafe is divided into a grab & go area, specifically designed for busy people with minimal time, to purchase a take-away lunch, a relaxation area, with bucket chairs around the tables and perch stools at the large panoramic windows to give you a bit of peace over your food and drink.
