Black Sheep’s Leman Street coffee shop may be overhung by the faceless bulk of Aldgate Tower, but that’s no reflection on the quality of their brew.
I first encountered Black Sheep Coffee at the London Coffee Festival about four years ago, and was so struck by the unusual depth and richness of their free sample that I bought a kilo of beans to take home.
Since then the company has gone from strength to strength, and their four-shot flat whites are a fixture in my office-based mornings.
When my energy runs low I’m also partial to their delicious, witty take on the bulletproof coffee craze: ‘Bullet-hoof coffee’, a kind of latte made with coconut milk and coconut cream.
Next time you dash out of Aldgate East tube station, make sure you break away from the herd for long enough to treat yourself at this cute little hole-in-the-wall café.
