The Book


Get your espresso fix in a gentlemen's toilet. Sip a cappuccino in a café-cum-upholstery shop. Scoop up a vintage Hermes scarf while you wait for your macchiato. London's new and adventurous coffee culture is full of exotic surprises and unexpected entertainments. Coffee enthusiasts in search of the best brew in town are being spoiled by baristas who have turned coffee-making into an art form; many cafés today roast their own beans, combine coffee with art, music, and literature, sell equipment for home brewing, or can be found in unusual locations such as lavatories and barber shops. This modern guidebook takes you on a caffeinated journey to the capital's hippest, tastiest, and most unusual coffee shops.
