  1. If you're in Soho, Fernandez & Wells in Beak Street and St.Anne's Court make excellent espresso, their own blend (beans sourced, I believe, from HasBean) brewed in a Synesso Cyncra.
  2. With Soho being changed out of all recognition this is a nice reminder of the previous glory days of the coffee bar.
  3. The UK's espresso revolution began in Soho when, in 1953, an itinerant dental salesman from Italy installed a Gaggia espresso machine in a bombed out laundrette on Frith Street. It would become Moka Bar. Over the next 10 years, a cluster of bohemian espresso bars would appear all over Soho and the wider city: some gothic, some avant-garde. These, believe it or not, were the birthplaces of British rock and roll. Check out my feature in the Telegraph on the espresso revolution of 1950s Soho and mourn their youthful, counter-cultural creativity as house prices soar and the area is invaded by investment banks. Please share the article on Facebook and Twitter. It contains some amazing video footage of 1950s Soho. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/europe/uk/london/12096693/The-fascinating-story-of-Sohos-1950s-espresso-revolution.html
