Good coffee is hard to find. I'm on a mission to make it easier. I started in Korea, moved to Sweden, and now I'm in New York, hunting for the best, and sharing the journey with you here. Send me a tip, feel free to share your own experiences or questions in the comments, and above all, drink better coffee! :)

Searching for the Best Coffee in London (Part I): Notes Music & Coffee
