“Do yourself a favour”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Stop by for a takeaway coffee. Step outside (sorry no seating here, in or out). That's ok. An ordinary coffee might require a chair, this one doesn't. Close your eyes. Inhale. Slowly sip the heavenly nectar. Yes, this is what life is for.

“A must for coffee lovers”

Hidden away in the hustle and bustle of soho is this fantastic coffee haven with walls lined with coffees from around the world. Staff are friendly and excellent with recommendations of coffee blends if you wanted to try something new :) excellent value for money.

“A bright Soho gem that you'd miss if you weren't paying attention”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

We were walking down Old Compton Street and happened to pass this little beaut. I personally am fanatical about tea and coffee, and wouldn't have even noticed this dark little shop window if it weren't for the vast array of Turkish coffee equipment lining the bottom of the display. I thought I knew a lot about tea - it turns out that this place is my dream. I bought some utterly amazing Milk Oolong for £12.50 for 125g, worth every penny. There were also a large range of South East Asian coffees, some rarer varieties from the Americas (including Hawaii) and some very unique blends.

I'd just stocked up on loads of coffee before noticing this shop so didn't buy any, but for teas they stock everything from your basic BOP teas for £1 to the rather luxuriant, much rarer specialties for about £20 for the same size bag.

The staff were amazingly enthusiastic, helpful and knowledgeable. I'll be visiting their website defiitely!
