A new coffee hangout has landed in Shoreditch, offering great breakfast and lunch menus and arguably one of the best coffees served in the capital.
The article goes on to say...The coffee though is the real winner here. These people really know what they’re doing and they do it exceptionally well. Ozone has an in-house coffee roastery, which is responsible for the delicate, nutty aroma that fills the air. They can make a perfect flat white, espresso or latte. The cappuccino was faultless; smooth, rich and robust without a trace of bitterness.

London is a big city...you knew that...and with that alot of restaurants, cafes and bars....and alot of food writers, bloggers and critics.
Here is the latest press on us...some nice things been said.
Visit Britain.com (the official UK tourism website) has writted an article lists ‘12 GREAT coffee shops in Britain that offer bean-lovers and initiates alike unique caffeine experiences’. The article differentiates Ozone by mentioning ‘cupping’ and that the ‘Shoreditch café’ is ‘committed to the pursuit of coffee excellence’. You can view the full feature here: http://media.visitbritain.com/Story-Ideas/Coffee-It-s-the-new-tea-988f.aspx ">visitbritain.com
Ozone Coffee Roasters has also been included in Restaurant Magazine as the ‘Opening of the Month.’
The article includes details about the brand and describes how a ‘large espresso bar forms the centrepiece of the room where guests can pull up a stool and watch an enthusiastic team coffee professionals pull espressos.’
The piece also discusses the food offering ‘the venue is open for breakfast, brunch and lunch, serving a selection of fresh café-orientated dishes with the emphasis on quality, locally sourced ingredients.’
Laura Richards from www.viewlondon.co.uk has posted an excellent review about her Ozone Coffee Roasters London experience...."The denizens of Shoreditch and beyond should make this Kiwi café their brunch spot of choice. Its promise of making delicious coffee for the people is combined with a complex menu of egg selections and thriving buzz from energetic staff."

London Coffee Week is on and our series of Project Waterfall cupping sessions started on Monday night, with a keen group of customers getting a tour of the roasting operation and taken through the protocol of cupping coffees.
Karla and I are in London for this full on week of coffee events, which ends with the festival at the old Truman Brewery over the weekend and the UKBC Barista camps finals.
My first day here...and excellent times seeing the Ozone Coffee Roasters London setup, meeting their great team of staff and carrying a out heap of coffee tasting with James and Sean for a range of coffee projects we are working on together.
The end of the day saw a crew of us going down to the very cool Look Mum No Hands for a barista vs barista cycling event called Rollapalooza....another Coffee Week event....then on to what can only be described as the burger joint experience of my life at Meat Liquor....get the onion rings and the deep fried pickles with blue cheese!
To get the most from the coffee you brew at home make sure you use freshly roasted coffee, ideally grind your beans just before making each brew and invest in some small digital scales so you can weigh your beans and water.
HARIO V60 pour-over is an efficient and convenient way to enjoy freshly brewed pour over coffee. This method is designed as either a one or two cup brew. HARIO drip filter produces an excellent clean cup of coffee with plenty of body & flavour clarity.
YOU WILL NEED:
1. HARIO V60 paper filters
2. HARIO V60 dripper/cone
3. Your beans weighed & freshly ground for filter. approx 15gm for a 01 V60 or 30gm for a 02 V60 (we recommend trying a single origin coffee through your HARIO dripper/cone)
4. freshly boiled filtered water
5. Cup/mug/glass for serving.
Come in to 11 Leonard St and check out our range of beautifully designed and functional HARIO brewing equipment, with package deals to help you brew great coffee with style.
The Perfect Trough is a food blogger...in his words "searching for the perfect feed" in London and further afield
Ozone Coffee Roasters is rather shockingly, a coffee roastery and café just south of Old Street, right in the heart of that ES mag darling and odious political trophy of the future, "The Silicon Roundabout".
Rather than being a slick urban Auckland operation they’re actually from the small Kiwi city of New Plymouth. It’s hard to imagine a similar sized place in the UK (Dewsbury, Rugby or Cheshunt to name a few) having such a serious, global approach to coffee.
