Known as “the coffee nerds” and with stores spread across the Mediterranean, Coffee Island specialises in the fine art of specialty coffee brewing. Sustainability, customisation and unique products are the core of Coffee Island’s philosophy. Its first London shop has just opened in the effervescent West End, on 5 Upper St Martin’s Lane (WC2H 9NY; two minutes from Leicester Square tube station, 5 minutes from Covent Garden tube station).

Additionally, it is a member of the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA), the world’s largest coffee trade association counting nearly 3,000 company members. Four Coffee Island staff members are Q Graders.
