I hate queues but...



I hate to wait in line, but I'll always be happy to wait for the best coffee in London.

Monmouth Coffee Shop, Borough Market, Saturday 21st February

Ian,

I am reminded of "Mr. Coffee, I'm So Frothy" who strategically has placed a Vespa vending cart directly across from the Finsbury Station Starbucks' location. Seems coffee drinkers have no hesitation for standing in a queue to see how frothy Mr. Coffee can make their brew. I have tried unsuccessfully to bring the Vespa refitted carts to the US as the costs are prohibited but anytime I'm in London I always visit our friend Mr. Coffee and take glee in the knowing that he has a built client base provided free by Starbucks.
