Whenever in London I always make sure I get to the Algerian coffee store as it has the best range of coffee I have seen. Polite informative staff and a friendly atmosphere makes for a pleasant purchase.

Algerian coffee stores have easily the best selection of whole bean coffees that I've seen in the UK. They may lean slightly more towards the traditional end of things rather than the speciality coffee market, but with a pedigree lasting well over 100 years, that's understandable. Handily located halfway down Old Compton Street in the heart of Soho, the shop... More

I have been buying my roasted coffee beans online from this store for the last 12 months. Great service, orders arrive quickly, very easy to use website and very fresh beans. It is a very old established business (over 100 years I believe) and I suppose I should not be surprised but my orders arrive tied up in brown paper... More

A huge selection of coffee and tea to buy. This small shop in Soho is filled to the rafters with bags of coffee and tea, equipment and accompaniments, and delicious coffee is served to take away - no space chairs. Worth a visit if in the area, and one of the best places to buy coffee beans. There appears to... More

This is an essential visit in London. The staff are lovely, knowledgeable and friendly. The coffee and tea choice is vast and good. Despite living outside of London now this place is the first on my list to visit when I come into town to replenish my tea and coffee stocks!

Really friendly shop selling freshly ground coffee - talk to the staff about what you like and they will make suggestions. They also have coffee making equipment including spare parts for coffee pots. Excellent tea selection as well and also different chocolates.

Despite being a keen coffee fan and something of a 'coffee snob', I have only latterly started buying beans here. I have taken their advice at the counter and the staff will give you as much time as you need. As for the beans, I went for their house espresso blend to use in a rather low-tech, non espresso machine... More
