The Tampered Press is an ideal place for writers wanting to escape noisy cafes to work on their masterpieces, as well as readers looking for a comfortable atmosphere to enjoy that delightful book in the company of a delicious cup of joe. Though the atmosphere is often a quiet one, conversations are also welcomed. The pace here is laid-back and serene. It is a calming contrast from the busy city life, so if you are looking for a mellow escape, this is your place. With its colourful mix-matched chairs and mirror window frames on the wall, The Tampered Press provides the coffee goer not just great coffee but also a great space to enjoy the coffee.

The staff is always friendly and they know what they are doing when it comes to the brew. From their americanos to their lattes, they are serious Baristas. Their drinks are full of flavour and every cup is made with care. Unlike other cafes, the lattes here do not taste like hot foamy milk. The rich flavour of the espresso in a cup of latte at The Tampered Press is perfectly balanced with the amount of steamed milk so that the coffee drinker can still taste the elegant flavour of the espresso, which is how a good latte should be. If you are looking for a hot cup of steamed milk, the lattes here are not for you. This place is for serious coffee drinkers who enjoy the bold taste of strong coffee.

If coffee is not your cup of tea, The Tampered Press also offers other non-coffee beverages. Their tea selection will please any tea lover. Their London Fog, Earl Grey tea with steamed milk and vanilla syrup, is by far the best in the city in my humble opinion. The Earl Grey in this London Fog is unlike any other. The flavours are so rich that it will make you rethink your idea of how a proper London Fog should taste like. I also like that it’s not too sweet.
