LONDON | Department Of Coffee And Social Affairs have expanded quite a lot since they first opened in Leather Lane back in 2010. The focus here, other than on great coffee is on people and each location is purposely allowed to have its own identity and atmosphere. One thing that’s consistent across all of the location is the quality of the coffee. Beans for filter and espresso come from a sourcing chain that extends from the farm and workers, to picking and packaging, screening and grading, brokerage, shipping, roasting and coffee making. At all steps of this process, Department Of Coffee And Social Affairs is involved. The end result is fantastic coffee for you, which you can enjoy in store along with some simple breakfast and lunch options and baked goods, or to take home in bean form.
There are 2 single origin espresso options along with 2 filter options and a feature coffee on cold drip. The equipment used is impressive too – there’s a La Marzocco FB80 3 Group EE ‘Felicity ‘Flick‘ Belle’, Mazzer Robur E, Mazzer Super Jolly, Marco Filtro Shuttle, Mahlkönig Tanzania, and Hario Cold Water Dripper.
There are 8 Department Of Coffee And Social Affairs locations throughout London but we’re partial to the Lowndes Court location due to its convenient location just off Carnaby Street, which gives us a great option when shopping in this part of town.
