Artisan coffee shops are starting to pop up everywhere. Not just in London or Paris but Dallas and Chicago and other cities around the world. I love a great cup of coffee so I am very pleased to see a vast selection of different shops to try. If I am not drinking my rosé in Paris you can find me at a café with a cup of coffee! Before I headed to Paris I stayed in London for a week. I spent my time with no particular agenda so wondered around different areas snapping photos. One particular day I went to Covent Gardens (more photos to come) and decided to stop in Monmouth Coffee Company. I had taken a photo of it in passing and on my walk back home decided to stop in. It wasn’t until I heard someone say, “let’s see what all the hype is about.” And another say, “I wonder if it lives up to its reputation,” that I realized I was in one of those small coffee shops. You know, the ones that garner a reputation for being one of the best new coffee shops in town. That promises a small café feel and coffee which has been brewed some incredible way. This particular shop travels all over looking for the best bean and then roasts their coffee from single farms, estates and cooperatives.
When the moment of truth came I was anxious. Would this be the best damn cappuccino I have had in London? That would be a touch position to fill! However, it did! It passed any expectations I had. It was delicious! I really believe their coffee is divine and it is a great little escape from the bustling streets of Covent Gardens! Shall you find yourself in the area, try the coffee out for yourself!
