It’s no secret that London is addicted to coffee. Today’s flat white drinkers are well versed - with a taste for single origins and light roasts - but what is often forgotten is that the city has a rich history of coffeehouses going back to the 1650s.
Bestselling author Lani Kingston and photographer David Post have captured the stories of the most inspirational modern-day artisans, roasters, growers, innovators and entrepreneurs who make London, once again, a world capital of coffee.
This book comes with a fold-out map featuring 50 of the best London coffee shops.
