Menu May 10th - Financial Times Article

Today we are very happy because the Financial Times has written a wonderful piece about coffee in London and in particular, Kaffeine. This is a proud moment for us all, as we have worked very hard to create a special place in London for coffee and food, and to have such a reputable newspaper acknowledge this is high praise indeed. We are very grateful.

It is also great to see the mainstream media putting out a positive review about a growing and exciting industry. Having the media back independents in this way is also much appreciated. This is how the industry grew so well in Australia, and if it helps create more independent cafes in opening because this media attention and also a greater consumer demand for better quality espresso drinks, then London really will become the coffee capital of the world once again. We can only keep working at it.
