Wake up and smell the coffee

Finally: here it is, my final London post. I feel so ashamed of myself, neglecting you guys for so long. You probably didn’t remember I existed, right? Since school started again, I seem to have no time to blog anymore and this post has been a long time coming.

As some of you may know, I’m a very busy girl. Going to school, doing an (awesome) internship, my theatre lessons and voice training sessions… these things really take some time and a lot of energy. Fortunately, I love keeping busy and being involved in everything. Now, since I am taking coffee classes next week, I’d like to tell you something about my love for this magnificent brew.

A couple of months ago we went to London and of course, we set ourselves a challenge: find the best cup of coffee in London. We visited Monmouth, Milk Bar and Kaffeine. In all of these places, we ordered a “Flat White”. To all of you coffee noobs out there: A “Flate White” is a coffee beverage. You can prepare it by making a single shot of espresso first. Then pour steamed milk over the top.

And the winner was… Monmouth!! They serve an excellent, delicious Flat White. Exclamation mark.


Milk Bar

This was our second preferred destination, the two guys behind the bar are absolutely A.W.E.S.O.M.E. And their bikes and flat whites too. Oh by the way, this place is actually an offshoot of “Flat White”: yes you are reading this right, it’s a company named after our favourite drink.


The last one we visited was Kaffeine. Their coffees were OK but not exceptional. I liked the interior better than the coffee itself. Which is not persé a bad thing. Regrettably it was too crowded and the personnel was not that friendly either. Probably because of the amount of people waiting. And for those who are interested: It’s a really good place to spot London Hipsters too.
