In search of the perfect latte... in Brockley

Good coffee and Kiwis go together like the English and their tea.

Having spent the past few weeks around home and unable to get my daily Latte fix from the Monmouth Coffee Company in London Bridge, I decided to Shop Local, and in the interests of withdrawal headaches and Brockley's property prices have subjected myself to a scientific experiment (as most Kiwis do) in which I sample a latte from every Brockley establishment, rating it according to a series of factors. The results are to follow...

Thanks Nick. Should have the final results up this weekend. Progress has been slighly hampered by my emerging lactose intolerance, and a nasty encouter with a toothpick in my BLT at Jam Circus affecting my typing finger. Still, in the name of science, my work must go on...
