A fresh well-crafted cup of coffee is one of the simple pleasures of life.
Piping hot espresso in the freezing winter and iced latte for when it’s a bit warm- there’s a coffee for every season and every mood if you are in London.
So we put together some of the best places that appreciate a cup of coffee as much as we do (well, possibly much more than us).
Drop in at these lovely cafes for coffee so wonderful that you can’t help but order every time:
Monmouth Coffee Company
Located in Covent Garden, The Borough and Bermondsey (open only on Saturdays), they source coffee from small farms in countries such as Colombia, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Indonesia and Kenya in small quantities.
This practice ensures sustainable and quality trade since coffee is seasonal, and the natural cycle of a coffee plant yields only one to two crops a year. Hence once a particular lot is over they move to the next one they bought.
They also deliver the coffees of your choice via their website. But if it is in small quantities, you will find it only in the shops.
Department of coffee and social affairs
They brew single origin coffee, that is, their coffee comes from only one producer, crop or region in a country. The coffee once imported, is roasted at their roastery in East London. Their coffee thus remains of the same quality and taste and is 100% traceable.
They have a cold brew coffee lab where delicious experiments with coffee go on.

Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, Fabrique Bakery uses traditional methods to make artisanal sourdough bread by hand and bake it in a stone oven for a light, fluffy and soft texture. In addition, their coffee comes directly brewed from Sweden.

The Gentlemen Baristas
The shops here bring back the charm of an old English coffee shop. The motto ‘Well-mannered coffee’ guarantees good service, food and of course, coffee.
