Small but compact specialist shop in Soho - difficult to look around if you are carrying a lot of stuff and wearing a rucksack! Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Coffees available to go at a good price. Lots of coffee types available and like how there was a description of the blends. I brought a few different types of coffee... More

I had meant to go and check this store for a while as I work nearby. I finally did and I loved it! The smell when you enter the shop is wonderful. I tried the Vietnamese and the Vanilla and Almond. Both absolutely excellent! This is definitely THE place where I'll buy my coffee from now on!

Most amazing coffee selection I've ever seen. Unfortunately it is a very small space, so it is not a nice place to browse.

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

Buy your beans there and have a shot of real Espresso. Excellent choice from all over the globe. Great teas and chocolates, too. It's an institution!

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
