    im not sure i agree with this. workshop, caravan, all the various places supplied by square mile, kaffine, espresso room, all better than what you can find in europe.

    the kiwis and australians (and later, the americans and the scandinavians) took coffee to far higher heights than anything seen on the continent and exported their knowledge to london starting around 2010ish

    only been to one of those places - I'm sure you can find good coffee, but it seems unreasonably difficult given the focus upon coffee shops in 2018. Best of Uk may be better than best of Europe, but I'd still rather take my chances in Europe in a random cafe - overall standard seems higher to me. Obvs have to take into account the massive influence of the chains.

    I dunno the difference clearly cos I like their coffee

    And on top of that I love all their overpriced sandwiches and cakes

    Just realised that BENUGO is one letter from BENUFO - coincidence?

    I'm a hopeless case when it comes to food

    I'm the type to order a hawaian pizza
