London Coffee

£20.00

Product Information

London is without a doubt home to some of the world`s best and most interesting coffeehouses. London Coffee tells their stories: of the people, the places and the history.Coffee drinkers in the 21st century have developed a taste for single origin and light roasts - they`ve come to learn terms such as terroir, crema, microfoam - they read tasting notes and understand what different roasting profiles actually taste like in the cup. This newfound public interest has spawned hundreds of coffee shops, speciality roasters, equipment suppliers, and dedicated festivals. However, what is oft-forgotten is that London has been home to coffeehouses since the 1650`s - populated by intellectuals, writers, businessmen, dissidents and academics; these were hothouses of debate, community-gathering places, and the birthplace of business.Some of these historic places are still around, flush with their vintage charm and scuffed vinyl seating. In our city, they sit alongside new, crisp Scandinavian-style coffee shops, small-batch roasters who serve steaming cups right in their workshops, and Italian-style cafes passed down through generations of the same family.
