2018 Awards – Most Popular Coffee Spot

The new Aergrind from Knock, with its top off and loaded with beans.So, here it is, the final Coffee Spot Awards Shortlist for 2018, 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 2018.

Last year this was won by Made by Knock: Aergrind with 2,124 views. This year just one Coffee Spot broke the 1,000 views mark. Of the 15 most viewed, 12 are Coffee Spots (11 from the UK), while the remaining three are Saturday Supplements.

This is, in some ways, my favourite Award since I don’t have to make any decisions. After 19 shortlists, it’s quite a relief not to have to decide who’s in and who’s out, although I did decide to exclude the post about my book, The Philosophy of Coffee, which otherwise would have come third…

You can see the shortlist after the gallery.
