About Us

Who is Prufrock Coffee?

Prufrock Coffee came about to satisfy our personal urge to make nice coffee and show people how delicious it can be. In early 2011 Prufrock launched The London Barista Resource , a barista training centre for Central London at 23-25 Leather Lane. Here we can at last meet the demand from customers, baristas and business owners for information, training and education. And of course, fantastic coffee.

Prufrock Directors are:

Gwilym Davies – 2009 Uk and World Barista Champion
Jeremy Challender- Songwriter, UKBC Sensory Judge
Klaus Kuhnke – Baker, Artisan Foods
