London's Best of the Best?

It's been a while since I had time in London to mooch around but may have a few days in Jan. With a couple of hundred entries on London's Best Coffee App and 100cups though deciding where to go is a headache.

 

So what's really the best of the best? Where did you have an espresso or filter that amazed you? Where uses an unusual roaster that you rate highly (i.e. not HasBean or Square Mile).

 

No dark roast places please.

 

Thanks!

I wouldn't call it the best but I do love Notes just behind St Pancras. Very smart new building and a very chilled out mezzanine where I basically stayed for about 4 hours chitchatting with old friends and drinking yummy coffee. Sausage rolls are also a bit special. Roastery is just off Caledonian Road so I would say its local!

Craft coffee

 

I agree it is Craft. In the last year I have tried mothers milk, Kaffeine, Monmouth, TAP, 3 places in Peckham, curators, Worksop (fitzrovia) and attendant.

Many nice coffees but nothing as nice as Craft. Also the granola fruit and yougurt is the bomb.

Is that the one in Shoreditch?

Store St Espresso - introduced me to the delights of Drop Coffee and Playground - so would tick your box of less usual coffee in the usual places. Timber Yard in Covent Garden was serving Barn when I was last in there and Workshop and the Department of Coffee and Social Affairs roast their own and are reliably good.

Mothers milk has closed??

 

Loved that place. Really nice guys and always willing to talk every coffee.

 

Don't the reason behind the closure but hope its not rising rent

 

Yep - see their twitter / facebook. Hopefully they come back somewhere else.
