An Interview with Gwilym Davies

The capital’s top coffee haunts
Prufrock Coffee has been featured as one of London’s Top Coffee Haunts by Delicious Magazine:
Coffee-making as a competitive sport? You’d better believe it, and the brains behind Prufrock Coffee is none other than Gwilym Davies, World Barista Champion 2009. Davies is at the forefront of coffee’s ‘Third Wave’ – a movement to raise awareness of coffee as a hand-made product, focusing as much on provenance as wine-making does – and he brews a damn fine cup.

Davies has been crowned the “world’s best barista” for the coffee that he brews up at his market stall in the Barbican. Raised in Yorkshire, lives on a canalboat and likes to wear fine tweeds and a signature flat cap.
