The Coffee Lover's Guide To South London

The Coffee Lover's Guide To South London

Hands up who is needing coffee to get through this week after the bank holiday? Us too. Coffee has its humble roots as a popular drink in 15th Century Yemen, originally used for staying awake for religious rituals. Well, flashforward to the 21st Century and coffee has fast become the best friend of the perpetually tired and occasionally hungover. Coffee has not just become a popular drink, it has taken on a life of its own, with coffee chains relentlessly lining every high street to give people their caffeine fixes. But here at the South London Club, we think it’s the hidden gems on the high street that provide the best roast, rather than Starbucks or Costa. Thus our guide to getting coffee at the best independents was born. We’ve got you covered for every sort of day. Those days when you’re dashing along the London streets, takeaway coffee cup in hand, the days when you’re tapping away on your laptop in the window of an indie coffee shop, sipping on a latte and even the days you’re downing espressos at a rate to rival teenagers in Ibiza.  So without further ado, it’s time to find your new favourite cup of coffee in South London. Expect latte art photos that will make your mouth water.
