Last month, we asked you to vote for your favourite boutique coffee shop. Here are your top 10 in London. Stay tuned for the best in the UK...

1. Monmouth

There are always fans queueing for their daily caffeine fix here and it’s worth the wait. Monmouth has been roasting since 1978 and its espresso blend is regarded as the best. 27 Monmouth St, WC2; 2 Park St SE1; 34 Maltby St, SE1; monmouthcoffee.co.uk

2. Flat White

This Soho stalwart was one of the first to bring Antipodean cafe culture to Britain, with the best (you guessed it) flat whites. 17 Berwick St, W1F; flatwhitecafe.com

3. Workshop Coffee Co

Perch at the bar for an expert espresso and a view of the huge roaster. The corn fritters are a must-try. 27 Clerkenwell Rd, EC1; workshopcoffee.com

4. Taylor Street Baristas

The skilled baristas create works of art with coffee crema that are almost too good to drink. The counter is piled high with brownies and other treats. 125 Old Broad St, EC2; Unit 3, Westminster House, TW9; 22 Brooks Mews, W1K; 28 Queens Rd, Brighton BN1; taylor-st.com

5. Shoreditch Grind

Its cinema-style sign displays cheeky slogans such as ‘The Perfect Cupsize’, but inside it takes its coffee seriously – their own blend is roasted daily and changes seasonally. The carrot cake is great, too. 213 Old St, EC1; shoreditchgrind.com

6. Kaffeine

This laid-back cafe has super-friendly baristas and was also voted by its peers as the best independent coffee shop in Europe. 66 Great Titchfield St, W1; kaffeine.co.uk

7. Sacred Cafe

A proudly New Zealand-style cafe, Sacred has grown into a mini empire with six locations serving its own Fairtrade roast. Enjoy your coffee with a savoury muffin. 13 Ganton St, W1; Highbury Studios, 8 Hornsey St, N7; Kingly Court, W1; Westfield, W12; Stanfords 12-14 Long Acre, WC2; Torrington Place, WC1; sacredcafe.co.uk

8. Nude Espresso

Try the signature intense ‘east’ espresso blend, aged for seven days, for a long-lasting crema, with their divine feta and spinach scones. 19 Soho Square, W1; 26 Hanbury St, E1; nudeespresso.com

9. Allpress espresso

Linger over a latte made with beans roasted on site, or if filter coffee is more your style, choose a single origin brew served in a dinky teapot. 58 Redchurch St, E2; allpressespresso.com

10. Federation coffee

This buzzy cafe is the place to get the perfect cup south of the river in London, made with beans from its own Brixton roastery. Save room for the amazing cheesecake. Unit 77-78, Brixton Village Market, SW9; federationcoffee.com
