Cup #17, 18, 19 – Dose

Saving one of the best for last… I headed back to the Barbican area (seems to be a hub for good coffee shops…) and met up with Thommy for my last stop on my London Coffee Crawl. The place is called Dose Espresso and is doing some cool stuff with coffee.

My first coffee was an iced coffee served with sparkling water. It was a bit shocking at first but the bitterness of the espresso and the bitterness of the carbonation really matched each other. Then went for just a second espresso.

After watching and smelling everyone around me have a filter coffee. I couldn’t stop thinking about it so I ordered my 19th cup! Honestly, I couldn’t resist. It just smelled so good in there.

The best moment in Dose was after I was happily 3/4 way down my last cup and I overheard the barista trying to convince an American tourist that she really should try the filter coffee without milk because it lets you experience the full flavor of the coffee. He was so keen and quite convincing if you ask me! But alas, some Americans will never come over to the dark side. I appreciate the effort though!
