  • I find the service in my local independent coffee shops is amazing and their home baking is up there too. I only really go to bigger ones if I’m killing time for something that happens to be next door but I’ve nothing against them

  • Big chains use really cheap coffee beans because they usually get asked to pour milk in it and that hides the crap quality. I like espressos and that means I have to go to at least a decent coffee shop rather than a chain to get my coffees because otherwise it is just bitter and horrible. I would recommend ginger & whites in Hampstead who do pretty decent espressos.

  • I'm a mixture. If I know the independent (like one near my train station) I prefer to support that. But if faced with choice of Starbucks or an unknown independent, I'll go Starbucks. I know what I like there.
