No longer at Wigmore st (it moved to Barret st.). Normally didn't enjoy my previous visits to either Wigmore st. or the one on Portobello road (which is no longer open). This time i had a very nice batch brew of Miko (Rowanda) with a small cinnamon pastry - both great. Service was nice & informative too. Seating arrangement is so-so, but it's ok for having a quick cup.
Every time I go there, having being served by multiple baristas, my flat white is superb (and I am a coffee snob). The employers and baristas are friendly and accommodating. The space is quite small, which is nice and cozy however it's not really a coffee and study kind of place. Would definitely recommend!
When you enter workshop it's quite low key, minimalistic but still homely. Relaxed low seating is complimented by a low bench which aims you at where the action is. Staff were friendly and informative, which is what you need when dealing with different sourced beans. Delicious cortado on their house and an even better espresso on their Guatemalan single origin. The crema was enticingly thick on both offerings and their house was complimented with the dash of steamed milk. But the star of the show was the espresso where the light-medium roast allowed the fruit and berries to come through. Similar to an Ethiopian yirgachef but downplaying the punchy berry to have a butter texture and more rounded mouth feel to it. Highly recommend and less than three pounds for the quality I could not complain.
