NO. 114 FITZROVIA
Like its sister cafe: T & P No.26, Tapped and Packed No. 114 is a joy to go to for those that love coffee. This one is slightly more spacious than its sibling and there’s a lot more natural light.
Today I went for a nice Has Bean flat white. I swear when I ask someone in the industry what exactly a flat white is, I get a different response every time. The difference at T & P was that the very kind barista serving me offered to walk me through how he made it, and even took the time to tell me about the areas where people clash over what constitutes a flat white (coffee milk ratio etc.). I think I’ll write a piece on that sometime soon. I need to get more explanations though. Maybe I’ll just choose the most popular response?
Back to Tapped and Packed: It’s a great coffee spot that hopefully will inspire others to open more coffee shops in the area of similar quality. If you haven’t been already, make sure you do.
I could probably come up with 114 reasons why you should.
