All In London Review

Impeccable design and even better coffee

Artisan coffee shops aren’t such a rare sight in London these days but that doesn’t mean to say that there aren’t still some that make you stop and pay attention. Located on Leather Lane, Prufrock is one of those that makes you take notice.

Usually coffee shops in London settle on a good bean supplier, expensive grinder and the classic La Marzocco espresso machine; and there’s nothing wrong with that. Prufrock takes coffee even more seriously. It’s baristas are trained by a world champion and it is unsurprising to find out that in the venue’s basement they hold courses and seminars on the processes of coffee making. The building is spacious and neatly designed with bare floorboards, whitewash and some impeccable design touches. Prufrock doesn’t just feel like a place to come and get coffee, it’s a place you want to stay a while and enjoy the space.

The baristas take their craft seriously. You’ll notice the classic espresso machine but you might be more unfamiliar with the halogen lamps, jugs, test tubes and other seemingly random (for the uninitiated) coffee making gadgets. Beyond the excellent coffee you’ll find pastries and light lunchtime snacks. If you’re serious about your coffee or even just intrigued as to what counts as one of the best cups in London, Prufrock is on hand.

What does it take to make a truly great coffee shop? Well, we're about to tell you...

Coffee is a serious business and we’re not just talking about the progression of latte art that we all love so much. No, what we mean is the attention to temperature, weights, cupping and roasting. Prufrock covers all the bases that coffee pedants expect and it is without doubt one of the leaders of London’s coffee scene. The spacious venue on Leather Lane is also a lovely place to hang out and watch the world go by.

Standing at the counter and watching the drip, drip, drip of coffee filtering through some crazy looking contraption has become a bit if a habit.

Tasting it brings you out of the daze. I don't think I've found better coffee than this in London. And Prufrock is also a relaxed place to stay a while.
