The Missing Bean is an independently owned and run espresso bar, set up to bring the artisan Antipodean style coffee and laid back atmosphere to the heart of vibrant Oxford.
“Best coffee in Oxford” - Great coffee by people who know and love Coffee. Made with passion in the Italian way. Great La Marzocco at work too.

“The rumours are true” - This really is the best coffee in Oxford (maybe in England...?) - have been addicted since day one! Only downside is how busy they get - don't expect a table.

“Great cappuccino” - I'm a coffeegeek, roast and brew my own coffee and usually am dissapointed by coffee that gets served up in cafes or restaurants. Not here. I needed a caffeine input so risked their coffee. I immediately ordered another cup. Full bodied, smooth and a LONG after taste. If I lived locally I would be there every shopping day.

“Wonderful!” - I love this place, the coffee is really really good. I also adore the Italian hot chocolate (simply amazing) and the hot apple juice with cinnamon. The place is small and it gets busy quickly but it still feels like a place to sit and relax. These guys are doing an amazing job!

“Best coffee in Oxford”- The Missing Bean easily offers the best coffee in Oxford - silky smooth with a great flavour. It's a busy and popular spot, and offers a very tasty and simple selection of food. They don't have multiple options but the food they do offer is good quality and ideal for a light lunch or snack. The only thing is that people do tend to linger with laptops and iPads, meaning that it's hard to get a seat. And there are no toilets...But this is outweighed by the sheer quality of the coffee. It's definitely not to be missed!

Easily the best coffee in Oxford! Run by ex-antipodeans who know their coffee, and who make super espresso-based coffees. Best coffee this side of the Tropic of Capricorn.

There are not many places that fill me with joy when it comes to great coffee outside of London, but the boys and girls at Missing Bean have certainly mastered the art of everything great when it comes to coffee and nothing but the coffee. Keep up the great work, and all credit to you and your roaster.
