A recent forum thread posed the question where one can find the best cup coffee in Putney?

Considering there are now more than 30 places on or around the High Street, is Putney a utopia for caffeine lovers or is there still room for improvement?

Pondering this issue and being unable to drink that much coffee ourselves, we decided to ask the caffeine lovers of SW15 to help us compile a top ten places to get your caffeine fix.

To get the ball rolling I’ll start with my favourite which is Cafe Nero who, in my opinion, make the best strong skinny cappuccino in town after the smoking ban it is no longer a smokey environment which previously was off putting. Followed by Moomba on Lacey Road if I am wanting a more relaxed environment for a longer coffee!

If you would like to nominate your favourite, email me on including the name of the establishment, name of coffee you order (though results will be decided upon number of recommendations for establishment), and the cost.

The only constraint on nominations is that the café / bar / restaurant must be in SW15. Results will be published in due course.

*Your nomination could make you a winner!! Based in Putney the Swiss Company Emmi are offering the winning nominator a cool bag filled with Emmi Caffè Latte.Emmi Caffè Latte is a premium iced coffee drink which is made from hand-roasted coffee beans which are specially selected from premium coffee plantations across the globe. The fresh espresso from these beans is then blended with Swiss alpine milk to create the delicious taste that is recognisable Emmi Caffè Latte.
