Thought for the day...

in life, you get what you pay for…if you’re lucky!

At Londinium Espresso the focus is on quality at a fair price. There is an ocean of poor quality coffee, freely available on every corner. There is some expensive coffee out there that is not true to label, or more often does not taste true to label because it is stale.

Why would anyone buy pre-ground Hawaiian Kona or Jamaican Blue Mountain? It’s pre-ground; that means its stale before it leaves the store.

Why would anyone buy these coffees as a blend, particularly if the proportions are not disclosed – how much of the premium coffee are you actually receiving for your money? The delicate flavours of the premium coffee are swamped by the presence of an inferior coffee. What a waste of money.

All this leaves you bitterly disappointed when you expose it to the only opinion that really counts; yours. And possibly embarrassed if you have served it to your friends.

We don’t think it’s a contradiction to say we offer premium coffee beans that represent excellent value for your money. That’s why we have the Londinium Guarantee. If it isn’t the smoothest cup of espresso you’ve had, send it back for a prompt refund from ourselves.

At Londinium Espresso you get what you have paid for: premium coffee that meets or exceeds your expectations.

If you would like a particular coffee that doesn’t currently appear on our website, get in touch & we will promptly acquire it & roast it fresh for you.

in life, you get what you pay for…if you’re lucky!
