Coffee Shops With Classes
London has lots of offbeat and quirky places. Every city has, London is no exception, but because of the sheer size and scope of the city, it’s often difficult to find them. If you don’t know where to look, then you’re stuck with the inevitable dreary franchise, with overpriced watery coffee and indifferent service. Coffee Shops With Classes In London explores the best of them.
I like my coffee served in style because I take my coffee very seriously as far as I am concerned coffee is an art form rather than a drink. I would rather have tap water than instant coffee, and I want a Mecca of knowledgeable Baristas! Some of the London coffee shops are quirky because of their surroundings. There is one that celebrates cereals that is breakfast cereals. Seriously, I want personally a decent cup of coffee, not a quirky surrounding. So the following ten coffee shops are about the celebration of drinking coffee rather than being surrounded by cereal packets.
They don’t all have classes some of them have workshops. The community cafés such as Canvas offer workshops to locals. Whilst the Barista classes at Prufrock appeal to a wider audience.
Some of these cafés offer excellent food including a fabulous vegetarian option such as the draughts cafe, whilst others concentrate on the learning aspect.
