HR Higgins

Shopping, Off licences Mayfair

Established in 1942, HR Higgins is a family-run firm that has a deep commitment to quality in both fine teas and coffee. Teas include some Chinese rarities alongside a full range of both loose tea and teabags. Prices are on the steep side, as you would expect from a holder of a royal warrant (for coffee) operating in Mayfair. A list of the coffees available, from an after-dinner blend to yirga chefe produced by the Oromia cooperative in Ethiopia, are listed on the website and can be ordered online. A range of accessories is also available. Enjoy a cup of fne tea or coffee in the café downstairs (which shuts one hour before the shop closes).

I am always on the prowl for a good alternative to the usual chains and coffee is no exception. So it was brilliant to be introduced to HR Higgins. It has a delightful space in its basement serving coffee to drink – the perfect place for a break of nearby Selfridges. They serve cappuccino and espresso with their house blend of beans. For regular coffee they use the pourover method and you have a choice of three types of beans – depending if you want it light, medium or rich. On the ground floor they sell all types of coffee for home and their staff really know their beans – for espresso coffee makers to French presses. It is no wonder they are holders of the Royal Warrant and are the official coffee merchants. They are the true artisans of coffee.
