Kaffeine at 15 Eastcastle Street, Fitzrovia opened in March 2015, just over 5 years after the original store opened on Great Titchfield Street. Located on a street that runs parallel to Oxford Street, Eastcastle is known by Londoners as the street to take when you want to escape the hustle and bustle of Oxford street and as a great way to walk between Oxford Circus and Tottenham Court Road. It is also known as a new and upcoming street for restaurants, hotels, art galleries, wholesale fashion and the media, design and advertising industries and now, specialty cafes.  

With five years experience running the café on Great Titchfield Street and drawing on 25 years experience in hospitality, we have taken and improved upon some of the features of the original store but also taken the design ethos to a new level. The 5.5 metre long counter is clad in copper and features beautifully against a back wall of black oak panels, featuring a Kaffeine logo in bright yellow neon from one of London’s best neon designers. We have wonderful 6 metre long bench seating along the wall, with high tables to perch at, or you can sit at the high stools at the massive sun filled front windows and watch the world go by.

Eastcastle Street serves espresso based coffees from the newly released Black Eagle Gravimetric Espresso machine by Victoria Arduino, loose leaf teas by the Rare Tea Company and a small selection of English juices and Italian soft drinks. It has a different food menu to the original store, that changes weekly and is made on site each day by professional chefs, focusing on seasonal, fresh, market driven produce with some wonderful special baked treats available as well.

Welcome to Kaffeine at 15 Eastcastle Street. Discover it for yourself.

 

 

     
           
           

coffee philosophy

Espresso Machine
We are very excited and proud to have one of the first Nuova Simonelli Victoria Arduino Black Eagle Gravimetric Espresso machines in the U.K. Designed in conjunction with James Hoffman from Square Mile Coffee, the Black Eagle takes the art and science and practice of making espresso coffee to a whole new level. It has a built in gravimetric weighing system, incorporated directly into the grate above the machines drip tray. The weight of the shot is then displayed on a digital read out above the group head, allowing the barista to assess the beverage weight immediately. This is the future of espresso making, please feel free to ask us for a demonstration.

Grinder
In order to get the best possible espresso, it is imperative to have the best possible grinder and so to work in harmony with the Black Eagle, we have the Nuova Simonelli Mythos One on the bar. Designed by four of the best baristas in the world, one of the Clima Pro’s main features is that it keeps a stable temperature throughout the day, between 35 and 45 degrees. Combined with other barista led features, this grinder provides the all-important consistency in the grind that all professional baristas have been asking for since the beginning of specialty coffee.

Beans
Square Mile coffee is owned by the 2007 world barista champion, James Hoffman and the 2007 world cupping champion, Anette Moldvaer. They have a reputation for being one of the best coffee roasting companies in the world. We also profile a guest roaster from the UK, Europe or the Americas every weekend as well as sell their retail beans.

Cup Sizes
We have specifically chosen these cup sizes to reflect and respect the true flavours of the coffee. All our coffees are served as a double shot as a standard; that is approximately 50mls of espresso in each drink.

· Flat whites and Long Blacks are served in a 5 oz cup
· Cafe Latte are served in 7.7 oz glass
· Cappuccino, Americanos and Hot Chocolates are served in an 6 oz cup

Take away drinks are all served in the same above volumes but in an 8 oz cup

Baristas
Our Baristas have at least three continuous years experience behind a professional espresso machine. They are continuously in pursuit of perfecting the art of espresso making.

Milk
We only ever use absolutely fresh, organic milk. We are using Bonsoy milk for soy drinkers.

Cleanliness
Our machines, grinders and the surrounding work areas are always kept impeccably clean.

Taste
We drink and check the taste of our coffee ourselves. All the time.

Questions
If you have any questions or queries on how we make our coffee, or if you wish to watch while we do so and we are not too busy, we are more than happy to spend time with you, just ask.

We look forward to seeing you.
