Darkroom Espresso is a specialty coffee shop in Swindon town centre.
Darkroom Espresso was founded in September 2014 by Jacky Collyer and Andy Carter. The two wanted to bring the kind of quality they had experienced working in cafes in Brighton such as Taylor Street Baristas and Flint Owl. The idea behind the name is that making excellent espresso takes the same, artistry, science and craft as developing photographs in a darkroom.
Now Darkroom is run by a small, dedicated team. We work hard to maintain the ethos of serving the absolute best coffee possible, providing a relaxed creative space, and generally making people feel welcome and well caffeinated.
