Down a quiet side street in Clerkenwell, is one of London’s most famous specialty coffee bars, Prufrock Coffee. Founded by Jeremy Challender and Gwilym Davies (2009 World Barista Champion), this fine coffee bar has been setting the bar high ever since it opened its doors in 2009.

During my visit on a hot summer day in the summer of 2014, former Prufrock barista Will Brooks, who operated Mother’s Milk for a while, advised I should go for the iced Kochere and a sourdough sandwich with avocado, chilli and lime to cool my head and warm my heart.

Prufrock also run a highly-respected training center where the likes of former Swedish Barista Champion Mattias Bjorklund pass down their wisdom to other coffee aficionados with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge.

The lovely open kitchen and bar area allows everyone to feel part of the buzz and observe, at close range, how the wonderful staff prepare each drink with the greatest care.
