Every morning before we open our doors we spend an hour adjusting the parameters of coffee weight, water volume and grind size to get the coffee to taste the best it can possibly be.
This new technology, developed in Florence, allows us to vary the pressure in real time to extract the fullest possible flavour from the beans.
On the brew bar the German-designed Uber Boiler delivers water on demand at the perfect temperature for our filter coffee menu.
Downstairs our Reverse Osmosis water filtration cold brew coffee system ensures that every drop of water that goes into your drink is as pure as is possible. With London's hard water, we have found that this makes a huge difference to the quality of drinks we serve.
At the end of every day we spend over an hour cleaning and caring for our coffee machines and grinders - they deserve it.
Our food in the evenings reflects the seasons and lets produce speak for itself – along with Iain’s own dishes such as terrines, seared tuna and beef wellington there will always be a selection of charcuterie and cheese available.
- Both Notes sites are open from 7am (9am Saturday and 10am Sunday) serving pastries, home-made muffins, toast and granola alongside our speciality coffee and tea.
“ Our produce-driven menu reflects both the Antipodean roots of our chef and the best Mediterranean and British cuisine has to offer.”
Our range of wines by the glass and the bottle is available at both sites at lunch time and throughout the day.
A plate of cheese delivered weekly from the caves in France or a board of Italian charcuterie is an excellent accompaniment to a glass of wine (or a coffee) at any time but we have expanded from this to offer terrines, gravadlax, bacalao, bruschetta and other small plates which can either be enjoyed as an early evening pick-me-up or combined to provide something more sustaining.
Examples of our evening menus can be found here for Notes Trafalgar Square andNotes Covent Garden.
