Day 4, and my search for a reasonable cup of coffee in America continues. After I was here the last time I sought advice from the guys at Nude Espresso. They’re based on Hanbury St right around the corner from my studio and I think they possibly do the best coffee in London. They’re one of the leading lights in the 3rd generation of coffee shops in London, taking a more boutique and specialized approach to coffee after the years of caffeine rape by the unmentionable high-street chain cafes (I take this shit seriously).
Anyway, when I got back from the Eurotrash show in June, Sasha at Nude recommended I check out Intellegentsia Coffee and that I did.
They also recently collaborated with Madlib to develop his own blend of espresso.
