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.
There are 15 Coffee Spots on the shortlist this year, all listed in order of publication.
Reusable Cups, A Year On
Coffee Lab, Stockbridge
Uprising Bakehouse, Exeter
Krema Coffee Guildford
Short Long Black
Glasgow Coffee Festival 2018
Melbourne in Lichfield, Bird Street
A special mention needs to go to the following:
- Coffee Spot Guide to Reusable Cups: last year‘s runner up would have won had it been published this year with a massive 4,000 views!
- Sage Barista Express: third last year, the Sage Barista Express would have come second this year with 2,500 views!
- Made by Knock: Aergrind: last year‘s winner still got over 2,000 views this year, which would have been good enough for third place this year.
- The Philosophy of Coffee: although published this year (like my book), I felt obliged to exclude it. It would have finished third as well! Damn.
- Speciality Coffee in Capsules? the winner of 2016’s Award, this still had a creditable 800 views this year.
- Coffee Lab, Winchester: although it was published in 2016, the Coffee Lab was also viewed over 750 times this year, easily enough to get it onto this year’s shortlist.
