2014 Awards – Most Popular Coffee Spot

An espresso in one of the lovely Look Mum No Hands mugs. Sadly if you want one of these for real, you'll need to go to the Old Street store, not the pop-up on the South Bank.So, here it is, the final Coffee Spot Awards Shortlist for 2014, the only one that you, my readers, decide. It’s the “Most Popular Coffee Spot” Award, which is based on the total number of views received by each Coffee Spot in 2014.

Last year this was won last year by Look Mum No Hands South Bank Pop-up with a rather precise 999 views (and no, Im not making this up!). This year we have two Coffee Spots which have broken the 1,000 views mark, which I’m quite excited by. Of the 10 most viewed Coffee Spots three are from London, two from Oxford and there is one each from Exeter, Bath and Cirencester. The remaining two are Saturday Supplments. It’s also interesting that two of the top 10 were published last year!

You can see the shortlist after the gallery.

  • Colonna & Small's: not a great surprise that the Coffee Legend from Bath is so popular
  • The Exeter branch of Artigiano Espresso is one of 2014's top performers.
  • The Natural Bread Company, the first Coffee Spot I did from Oxford, was a surprise hit!
  • London's Continental Stores is one of my favourite London spots. And yours, I see...
  • The first of the Saturday Supplements and the Coffee Stops Awards proved a big hit!
  • The other Saturday Supplement, my London Coffee Fesitval piece on cups. Go figure.
  • The second entry from Oxford is Brew Oxford, proving very popular.
  • Since I tweet about Beany Green in Paddington ALL THE TIME, I'm not that surprised!
  • The first of two Coffee Spots from 2013, Vagabond N7, showing its enduring popularity...
  • ... while the second Coffee Spot from 2013 is Cotswold Artisan Coffee from Cirencester.

There are ten Coffee Spots on the shortlist this year, all listed in order of publication.


A special mention also needs to go to the following. Philadelphia’s La Colombe, Dilworth Plaza, was the most popular overseas Coffee Spot, while both South Coast Roast and White Mulberries (Coffee Spots from 2013) would have made the shortlist if I’d counted the number of views in their first calendar year. In that respect, both suffered from being published late in the year.

And the winner is Artigiano Espresso, Exeter
Runners-up: Continental Stores and Vagabond N7
