International Coffee Day 2022: the top five coffee shops in London according to Tripadvisor reviews

Where to spend International Coffee Day this weekend in London? Londonworld is here with the top five coffee shops in the capital, according to Tripadvisor.

It’s International Coffee Day on Saturday October 1 in London so it seems the best reason to take a trip to a local coffee shop and sink a couple of espressos or a piping hot pumpkin spice latte.

International Coffee Day is organised by the International Coffee Organisation and each year raises awareness for the workforces behind the coffee making process; from coffee bean growers to baristas across the world.

“On International Coffee Day 2022, Members and partners of the International Coffee Organisation come together to move the coffee sector from a linear to a circular economy: to celebrate all those working hard to make the three billion delicious coffee cups we enjoy every day around the world.”

2022’s theme is based around the commitment the organisation has “to coffee farmers’ prosperity to reduce the coffee industry’s impact on the environment and mitigate climate change”

So to celebrate International Coffee Day 2022, Londonworld has taken a look at the five best coffee shops in London according to Tripadvisor.
