Enjoying Some light roasted @unionroasted coffee at the @thepennydrop_london , deco has this scandi vibe which makes me feel right at home, but the owners are #aussie who woulda guessed.
The music is slow but graceful which creates a calm and relaxing environment.
Nice mix of people on their laptops, catching up or having their Espresso hit.
It's nice to have a light roast now and then, it does feel refreshing compared to med/dark roast, like a slow fix of caffeine rather than the jolt I'm used.
Will be back for sure. #london#coffee#mocha
- WHO I AM

I enjoy creating new and interesting flavours and the feeling that people experience upon tasting my new creations. - WHY SIMARA IS BETTER

Our current espresso is a single origin roast from Uganda, while our filter is all the way from Colombia. Both beans are roasted at @tate Britain roastery using the skills of our coffee experts to get the best taste possible and then delivered to each of our three cafes across London.
“wanna play?” Is one of the founding principles of @ShondaRhimes’ book, Year of Yes, which I’m currently listening to on @audible_com (and something I’d highly recommend. It’s read by Shonda and includes recordings from life speeches)
Anyway, back to “wanna play?”. What started for Shonda as carving out time for her kids ends up being a question she asks herself, permission to relax and enjoy something. It’s currently something im trying to ask myself, and now, you. Wanna play? .
Sometimes you just need cake. Or two. Or three. Or 400 million. @lanka_uk makes some beautiful cakes, even the matcha ones at Monocle in Marylebone (I think). You get the full range at their cafe up in North London #londoncafeguide
Big love to everyone for making the very busy weekend, a very pleasant one. Regulars, first timers and neighbours, we love having you inside. Especially when it’s arctic and snowing outside. See you tomorrow for another fab week of coffee, specials and love. St.Px.
