Founded 30 years ago, Monmouth sets itself daunting standards for quality and ethical trading, and meets them consistently. This is pre-eminently a place for single-estate and co-operative coffees. You’ll always be able to find a good Kenyan coffee here, and Central and South America are represented by excellent ranges. Founder Anita Le Roy is an industry leader in the campaign to help growers improve quality and earn higher prices. The original shop-café in Covent Garden is tiny and cosy; the Borough space is larger and serves fabulously moreish cakes and savouries to enjoy with your fine brew.

The go-to spot for delicious coffee - never weak and always well made. Friendly staff serve behind a long bar counter scattered with pastries from the Little Bread Peddler, and although seating space is limited the cafe has a bustling vibe. It's also the perfect location to grab a takeaway and explore the surrounds.
I believe in the merit of focusing on just one thing, but excelling at it, and this is just what Monmouth does! The place is not fancy, and you could easily walk past their Covent Garden branch, if it wasn’t for a massive queue that never quite disappears from their door. You might have to wait for few minutes and share a table with a bunch of strangers, but the BEST COFFEE IN LONDON (UK? World?) makes it so worth it!
Used to use the Borough Market but working in the Covent Garden means buying my bag of coffee, and I love that they will let me taste 2-3 coffee to help me choose!
There's no avoiding the fact, these guys' Joe is pretty special. Have always been baffled by the big queues to get in but after a visit you understand why people bother.
