London Coffee Shop Awards 2014


The results are in! And the winners of the first Coffee Stop Awards have been announced.

Over 18,000 Londoners voted in the awards, which were announced at an event in London on 23 April 2014. Londoners have started to take their coffee drinking very seriously in the last few years. This has partly been driven by discerning Australians and New Zealanders coming to London and moaning about the quality of the coffee. Eventually they have done something about it, with coffee bars such as Flat White, and the guys running Caravan, putting coffee up there alongside the British thirst for tea.

More and more pubs seem to be closing in London, but coffee shops are under no such threat, with big chains such as Costa Coffee and Pret a Manger opening as fast as they can. But it’s the independent places that are proving the funkiest, and more places than ever are displaying a “we serve Monmouth Coffee” sign.
