Kin – Fitzrovia, London


The second stop on our London Coffee tour took us to the relatively new (opening in May 2014) Kin, a speciality coffee shop and vegetarian cafe focusing on fantastic ingredients with a real emphasis on sourcing environmentally and socially sustainable produce.

This fairly unassuming looking cafe that one might miss when passing was a breath of fresh air with its attitudes towards sustainability with top quality coffee and food without feeling like its being pushed upon you.

The staff at Kin were extremely friendly and took the time to talk to us about their beans and philosophy and explain what Kin was all about.

On entering the shop we were welcomed by a bright and airy space, a perfect haven to relax away from the busy streets. Angular lights and clean lined counters and tiles gave a modern and contemporary look, with a living wall in the corner which was a nice touch.

The coffee served was a Burundian bean from the roasters “Notes” which had a bold but smooth taste, this is being changed to a new bean shortly from Clifton Coffee Roasters which will be interesting to compare.

The food menu was fantastic and everything looked so appetizing, a large selection of cakes and pastries along with soups and fresh vegetarian and vegan offerings was available.

This is definitely one to try if your ever in the area, and even if you’re not its worth the travel… you wont be disappointed.
