Modern Coffee.

Watch House Somerset House

Coffee by day, wine by night

When the opportunity arose for us to inhabit one of London’s most iconic cultural institutions, we knew it was the perfect place for our next House. Inspired by the incredible Neoclassical architecture, our design team sought to highlight the existing beauty of the East Wing whilst adding a contemporary touch. At one end you’ll see commissioned artist Richard Hind’s hand drawn mural of the London skyline, and at the other a dream-like room home to a living tree!

Boasting a state of the art brew bar, Somerset House offers a little more than our usual daytime wares. By night you can enjoy a carefully curated wine list and small plates menu to see you through late into the evening.

    Coffee Matchmaker

    Rituals, Ventures or Rarities? All great coffees, so which to choose? Let us help you find your match in 6 simple steps.

    Start Matching

    How experienced are you with coffee and flavour notes?

    Great! Now, How curious are you about developing your palate for more complex flavour profiles?

    Nice. Ok. What brewing method do you like to use?

    Which of these best describes your favorite coffee?

    Right. Last one, Do you take milk?

    Rituals

    We think you'll love Rituals — those things in our life which ground us, be it a morning run or some evening journaling, our rituals are things we wouldn’t be the same without.

    Ventures

    We think you'll love Ventures — selected as coffees which can open up our minds further to the potential of coffee. These cups will highlight more fruit forward or floral characteristics but with the balance of sweetness to back it up.

    Rarities

    We think you'll love Rarities — our rarities are designed to blow our preconceptions of coffee out the water. Each month this category allows us to showcase cups which have flavours even we would not have thought possible from our humble coffee seed.
