Purveyors of the best espressos in London.
Credited with serving the best espresso in London, if coffee is your thing you really can?t walk past Caffe Vergnano 1882 without popping in. A glass counter, neat wooden tables, black and white photos, and clean cut d?cor all make the caf? appear fairly ?de rigeur?, on first sight. However, look beyond the standard set-up and looming impressively from the back of the counter is Caffe Vergnano?s piece de resistance - a gleaming, chrome Elektra Belle Epoque Q1-C espresso machine. Exceptionally rare, the Belle Epoque represents pure coffee heaven and as a result drinking an espresso here is like swallowing down an aromatic slice of velvet. Supplied on a pewter tray, with a glass of water to cleanse the palate before diving in and a small bitter chocolate, this is a caf? that takes coffee seriously and presents every cup with pride and perfection. Every macchiato comes complete with the perfect rosetta on top and not a hint of bitterness. You?ll go in for one espresso, leave having drunk four, and return soon for more.
Excellent espresso and the Elektra Bell Epoque Q1-C espresso machine.
