As a part of adding my favourite coffee shops to this site, I started noting how much I was paying for a long black in each location, which I've added to the coffee shop listing. Unsuprisingly there is a little difference between coffee shops so out of interest I've made the below chart so that we can compare the prices. A long black is a good benchmark as it really is just two ingredients of coffee and water which reduces the variable costs such as milk. It also happens to be the type of coffee I predominantly drink. If a coffeeshop doesn't explicitly serve a long black, I'll substitute it for an Americano.
Please don't read too much into these numbers as I know it's far from a proper survey, it's just as an item of general interest.
|Coffee Shop||Area||£ Price|
|Nude Espresso - Hanbury Street||Shoreditch||3.0|
|Allpress - Redchurch Espresso Bar||Shoreditch||2.7|
|The Larder||Bethnal Green||2.7|
|Kaffeine Eastcastle St||Fitzrovia||2.6|
|Mae + Harvey||Bow||2.5|
|Attendant - Fitzrovia||Fitzrovia||2.5|
|Caravan - Exmouth Market||Exmouth Market||2.5|
|Morty and Bob's||London Fields||2.4|
|The Peanut Vendor||Victoria Park||2.3|
|Paper & Cup||Shoreditch||2.1|
I have also recorded the general area in London of each coffee shop and have averaged the prices across the different parts of London.
I'm also tracking the overall average price per quarter.
