  1. As the title says really. I know it's a bit of long shot, but we're going to the Munch exhibition at The British Museum and was hoping to have a stop off somewhere between there and The Hawksmoor at Seven Dials.
  2. As per Glenn's suggestion here's a new thread for the autumn / winter season London Meet Up, shout out to @jlarkin, @hotmetal, @Hibbsy, @MediumRoastSteam from the old thread and happy to see anyone new interested I'm free most weekends and I do understand it might be hard to pick a date which works for all, but lets try anyway I'll kick it off with: who's available in Sept (weekends, probably best to opt for Saturdays as some places might be shut on Sundays)? T.
  3. If you'd be traveling tonight and wanna bring some fresh local beans on a budget to a friend that really likes espressos and ristrettos which roaster would you recommend? I know there are tons of threads on the topic, but wanna read some updated and variated feedback ...
  4. Hi Everyone, At the moment I'm considering getting a KVDW Speedster for home use, after being enamoured with the Spirits they have in coffeeshops. 1) Is there anywhere around London that one could go and try out the Speedster or have the coffee from it? 2) I was thinking of matching it up with an EK43. Any thoughts related to that? Thank you, Raman
  5. I am considering a trip down to London, maybe a day trip, maybe a weekend. I want to do a bit of a pointless coffee tour, drink some great coffee and see a bit of the city. Any suggestions for cafes or coffee related venues that are worth a visit?
  6. Hi all, I'm visiting London next week and wanted to buy green beans from a vendor who has a physical shop(not online) in central London. Any suggestions?
  7. Another interesting initiative. I'm not sure that it is ground breaking but the cause is undoubtedly a good one. https://www.ucl.ac.uk/news/students/072015/072015072015-ucl-student-initiative-second-shot-tackles-homelessness-one-espresso-at-a-time?utm_source=UCL+(Internal+Communications)&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=5926321_The+Week%40UCL+-+Issue+206
  8. [h=2]About Our Client[/h]Julius Meinl was created in Vienna, Austria in 1862. To this day, they are still privately owned by the Meinl family and are currently in their fifth generation. The Meinl family have always been entrepreneurial and have various other businesses. Julius Meinl is so well regarded in Vienna; he has his own street named after him! When it comes to coffee, their mission statement is at the heart of the business and it centres around striving for excellence, to serve the best possible quality for their consumers. As well as a broad range of coffees, in 2012 they officia
  9. Not a part of London I spend a lot of time in but I spotted this place and liked the look of it after a morning of terrible meeting coffee. I had a delicious Ethiopian brew on the advice of the crazy (in a good way) person on the till. I'm now adding brew to my options. Really delicious. Nice ACME cups too.
  10. In London for the day - best coffee shop near London Bridge? Ta!
  11. Hi I'm looking at buying a Rancilio Silvia hopefully with a vario grinder. Ideally I would like to try before I buy but as much as I would like a trip to London I would prefer somewhere in the North East of england. Does anyone have any ideas of who sells either this or something similar who would be willing to demonstrate what the setup is capable of before I spend my money. Regards, John
  12. Finally visited Kaffeine in Great Titchfield Street this week. Brilliant place! Great, great coffee, very friendly and a good place to hang. Excellent - it has even overtaken Monmouth as my new favourite. I wrote a little review of Kaffeine here: http://philwbass.posterous.com/kaffeine-coffee-bar-london-0 I had less favourable experiences on my two visits to Taylor Street Baristas in Richmond, very disappointing given what I'd heard. Another great recent find though is the Espresso Room opposite Great Ormond Street hospital. The full London coffee review (so far) appears on my
  13. Hello, I have been following coffee forums for most of this year but this is my first introduction. Planning Kaffeine has been taking up loads of my time, as well as finishing at my old job at Lord's Cricket ground at the end of July 3 weeks before we opened. Now my life is totally immersed in coffee and I am loving it. I am originally from Melbourne, have worked in Hospitality for over 20 years and just love providing great food, service and products to people. Kaffeine is my first place with my business partner who is from New Zealand and we look forward to providing our patch of l
  14. Tweets this morning indicate that Coffee by the Clock is open - 186 Fleet St, London This is another venture by the Flat Cap Coffee Co and Notes Music & Coffee lads Robert and Fabio If you're in the area please stop by and check them out - and please post a review here too
  15. Hello, I've been in and out of the forum for the past year, and pursuing better espresso the entire time. As the one year mark is approaching, I'm extracting espresso far superior to that of any high street chain (he says) and I'm now taking the financial plunge into rounding off the experience with a IberItal MC2. The question is...Is it worth looking into coffee bean subscriptions or are these a way of roasterys shifting slow moving beans (maybe I'm a great big sceptic) Has anyone had experience with sub's in the past. My gf does work a few seconds walk from the Nude
  16. Hi everybody, I'm really glad I found this forum. I'm a little bit confused... Let me begin by saying that I'm an Italian living in London, we share the same passion for some good coffee My current coffee machine doesn't satisfy me anymore (Krups F880). I use Illy ground coffee (black label) but it seems that the quality of the coffee my little Krups produces has been decreasing over time. In these days it tastes like dirty water...I descaled and took care of this little coffee machine, it's 5 years old and I live in London. Perhaps the hard water has taken its toll?!? I
  17. Iberital MC2 grinder for sale at £85 (plus postage if required - would prefer pickup in London) Grinder and burrs in great condition. Bought on here 5 months ago, and has had very light use since (only used weekends for 1-2 coffees each day). Originally bought in late 2012. Reason for selling is I just upgraded to a Vario. Here are photos from the previous sale - can upload more recent ones if people want, but there's no change!
  18. Hi, I have an older Gaggia Coffee Classic, descaled it a few times but the water is still only dripping out of the shower head. When switching the pump on it first makes a louder noise which then gets much quieter after a few seconds. Does anyone know someone in London who services these machines, or and idea about the problem or maybe a description on how to service it yourself? Steam / water is coming fine out of the steam pipe.

  20. Hi all, good to be here. I'm a coffee roaster helping with a new roastery called Brew Coffee Plus in Streatham, South London currently. Started as a barista years ago so nice to be moving forwards in coffee. We are planning to do some experience days / courses / serve coffee on weekends at some point if anyone is in the area. I'm sure we can fit people in to visit also if you are keen as we tend to just roast 1-2 days a week currently. [email protected] is the place to go for that. Looking forward to some good reading/posting in the group soon. Best, m
  21. Hi all, I'm Caroline, I've been using the forum anonymously up to now for info whilst starting up my own coffee business, so it's about time I joined properly. I've got a Fracino contempo dual fuel machine and mazzer grinder in a Piaggio Ape van. I've gone from working in an office, to a coffee shop, to outside with my van in the last year. Currently looking for more work bookings in London (markets, events, private parties, etc.), so any tips on getting these would be welcome Thanks, Caroline Perky Coffee http://perkycoffee.co.uk
  22. Did anyone head over there this weekend? I'm thinking of getting the train up tomorrow, is it worth it? http://www.londoncoffeefestival.com/
  23. Hi everyone, My name is Julius Ibrahim, I’m looking to launch Second Shot Coffee, a social enterprise café in London that will train, employ, and support the homeless. I really want to start a movement to push social enterprise into the mainstream by tackling homelessness one espresso at a time! I’m currently crowdfunding to get the initiative off the ground at http://bit.ly/secondshotcoffee and we’ve got one week to go to raise as much funds as possible to help us get started. Would really appreciate your support with pledges but also spreading the word to help us launch and
  24. If you're heading to London this weekend (or next) then you might want to check out this link for the opening hours for some of London's finest cafes Phil Wain (a real coffee lover and Coffee Forums UK member) has collated this information, in a similar vein to his Xmas / New Year 2010 list Thanks Phil
  25. Hello all, I'm interested to find out from you all out there what you think the scope is for another London-based wholesale coffee company? Also, whereabouts in London do you think is in dire need of a new cafe serving damn fine espresso and filter blends? Any comments/suggestions most welcome thank you! Curiousgeorge.
