  • Coffee Cult visits: Taylor St Baristas in Mayfair

    Coffee Cult visits: Taylor St Baristas in Mayfair

    When it comes to caffeine, it turns out Coffee Cult is a raging capitalist – as discovered on a visit to Taylor St Baristas Mayfair branch. If it looks like a local independent, serves coffee like a local independent and has the friendly staff of one — then, we’ve officially sold out.

    It may have none of the frills and fanfare as might otherwise accompany a visit to an Australian cafe and it’s not a place to linger in the warm conviviality of it all.

  • Coffee Cult visits: Caravan at Exmouth Market

    Coffee Cult visits: Caravan at Exmouth Market

    It’s early Saturday morning in London and a look outside the window indicates the prospect of a long, cold, grey and bleak weekend. What’s more, I have £40 left in my bank account and a payday I know is far enough away to mean £30 of that amount needs to be set-aside for the good people at TFL. Or alternatively, the good people at Caravan, Exmouth Market.
