Algerian coffee store - London's hidden gem

Hidden among the endless number of Italian eateries, gay bars, Caffé Neros and Starbucks coffee chains in trendy Soho, the Algerian Coffee Store is a one of London’s hidden gems. This year they are celebrating 125 years of business, and their experience shows. The Algerian Coffee Store is the coffee lovers wonderland, where even the hardcore connoisseur will find something of interest among the 150 types of coffee and shelves crammed full of shiny coffee presses, percolators, beans, teas (250 types), spices and luxury chocolate.

Rain forest canopy - the natural habitat of the Luwak

Recently ousting Jamaican Blue Mountain as the world’s most expensive coffee, around 700kg of cat-poo (or more commonly Luwak) coffee are produced around the world each year, and can fetch as much as $770 a kg in London.

The coffee is made by picking out and roasting partially digested coffee beans from the feces of the South-East Asian palm civet or Luwak, that live around the coffee plantations.

Stevia the natural sweetner that may replace sugar

Stevia, the zero-calorie, 100% natural sweetener, is making its comeback. Banned around the world in the mid-80’s, Stevia Rebaudian (more commonly sweet leaf or sugar leaf), can now be found in food products on our supermarket shelves including teas, juices, cereals and ice cream. It has become so popular that even Coca Cola and Pepsi have gotten in on the act with over 30 of their own Stevia based-sweeteners. The all-natural sugar substitute has come a long way from its humble beginnings in the forests of Paraguay, but can it ever become coffee bar mainstream? We think so.
