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.

I will admit I am biased. I have been buying coffee, and more recently tea ( thanks doctor) from this store for forty years. Over the past ten years there has been a profusion of coffee shops in London, many selling their own unique blends attract the ever growing group of coffee snobs, who like their wine snob mates, talk...

Amazing aromas, beautiful coffee and interesting products. Droste drinking chocolate is delicious. Staff are very pleasant and the info leaflet is worth picking up.

Been buying my tea and coffee here for years and its got to be the best place to do so in London.I have brought coffees and teas from Fortum and masons but. The Algerian coffee stores beats them hands down for quality and price. I would recommend this place to anyone try it yourself.
