The Oxford Mail correspondent has been busy trying out CBD coffee


Somebody who claims to never drink instant coffee, loves a flat white and knows the difference between all of the beans and their origin.

I’m not one of those people.

Don’t get me wrong. I do like a coffee but if I order one out, I’m guaranteed to get the sweetest thing on the menu – the caramel syrups, the pumpkin spiced latte, and if it comes down to it – extra chocolate sprinkles on my cappuccino.

But what’s the point of adding something that is supposedly relaxing, into coffee – which literally exists to do the opposite?

My tour of Oxford’s coffee shops starts on George Street at the Black Sheep.

It’s a Sunday morning – I’m not hungover, I had a good night’s sleep and I even walked into town. I’m feeling great.

I go into the shop – at this point, we weren’t allowed to sit inside. So, it’s takeaway only.

Inside, it’s fun. Graffiti and neon lights on the exposed brick wall, dark and moody lighting. It’s the perfect spot for an Instagram picture.
