2013 Awards – Most Popular

A deliciously sweet espresso in a glass from Boscombe's Cafe BoscanovaSo, here it is, the final Coffee Spot Awards Shortlist for 2013 and the only one that you, my readers, decide. It’s the “Most Popular Coffee Spot” Award, based on the total number of views received by each Coffee Spot in the year.

Last year this was won by Café Boscanova, with 125 views in 2012. To give you an idea of how much the Coffee Spot has grown since then, Café Boscanova actually had 199 views this year, which while beating last year’s total by 50%, only puts it 34th in this year’s list! This year’s winner, by the way, has received 999 views!

I’m presenting the top 10 Coffee Spots in the shortlist, nine of which are Coffee Spots proper, the other being my article on Caffeine Magazine. Nine of the top 10 were published this year, while one, Abriachan Campsite and Café, was published in 2012 (only the views in 2013 were counted for the purposes of this Award). Of the nine Coffee Spots featured, only two are from London, confirming the Coffee Spot’s national reach. Three are from Bristol, one from Southsea, one from Scotland and two from Newcastle. The top overseas Coffee Spots is the Pikolo Espresso Bar from Montréal, which came in 14th.
