Hey folks,

The new [email protected] has opened on Tower Bridge Road at last, I went by there the other day.

It's big and bright and well-lit - not gloomy like the one on Bermondsey Street.

Mind you, it depends on whether you want to be seen!

I hope that they can make a better espresso that the Bermondsey Street branch!

I had a filter coffee from the Bermondsey St branch on Monday, and it was truly terrible. The worst coffee I've had in ages.

Yes, definately avoid the filter coffee at bermondsey street. But I like the americano there.

Perhaps showing my coffee naiveity here but what's the difference between an Americano and a filter coffee? I always thought they were the same...

Americano - a shot of expresso topped up with hot water.

Filter - coffee that goes through one of those percolater things slowly and then sits in the glass pot on a hotplate to stay warm.

I think their americano is pretty good too.

Well you live and you learn! I shared your opinion Jonathan

At least [email protected] has filter coffee! One of my pet grievances is going to a coffee shop, asking for a filter coffee and then being served an Americano, as if they're the same thing.

Yes, but if it's as bad as it is here there's barely any point, is there?

And less than 18 months later, [email protected] bridge rd has closed down.
