Hey all,
I am going into London tomorrow for personal reasons, and I was hoping the hive mind that is the internet might be able to make a few suggestions on where on could get a good cup of Joe. I am typically a brewed drinker, but that's mostly because I don't have time to pull a good shot for my self in store. All suggestions are welcome, but I am really hoping to find a place to talk coffee as well as drink it.
Brendan

I'm currently financing my addiction by working at Starbucks (Wellington St South in the Chapters) & I consider myself a talented barista, but some of my favourites would be

TG's Adisababba Ethopian restaurant on Dundas St. for an authentic coffee ceremony,
the Black Walnut in Wortley Village (pumpkin cookies, mmm),
The Fireroasted Coffee Company is in my opinion a freakin' stellar coffee roastery (you can get brewed coffee, roasted, green bean, they've got tea, syrups..),
Ben Thanh's or any similar restaurants usually have good Viet coffee,
I've heard good things about East Village

& a little outside of London I love Sputnik Espresso bar in Stratford & Brown Dog Cafe in St Georges, ON.

Also Hasbeans is great, the owner talked to me about roasting for evvvver this one day years ago and it kind of kickstarted my love of coffee.
