LJ Coffee House was established in 2008 with the aim of bringing a true 'Coffee House' atmosphere to the heart of Soho, London. Our philosophy is simple: The best coffee, ethically sourced and perfectly served in a relaxed atmosphere. It's what we like to call "Coffee as it should be".
All of our coffee beans come from Union Hand Roasted, an independent, award winning roastery out in East London.
Since our launch day we've featured on LBC radio, The Independent Newspapers 'Top 50 places for coffee in the UK' list, The London Coffee Guide Top 100 and we've been awarded a full 5 stars by ViewLondon.
Our website is a place where you can find out more information about who we are, what we believe and information about the coffee we serve as well as some very useful information for the budding home barista. Please sign up to our mailing list by filling out your details on the right - we'll keep you posted with our latest news and some special offers just for you.
You can also visit our 'Home Barista Web Shop' by clicking on the supplies, coffee & gifts link to the left. This is where you can buy our coffee on line along with some specially selected tools of the trade, ingredients, gadgets and specially selected gifts that are ideal for birthdays, anniversaries, fathers day, Christmas etc. In fact you can get just about everything you could need to make 'coffee as it should be' from the comfort of your own home! Our Home Barista Web Shop is a brand new venture for us and we'll be adding lots of products over the coming weeks, so keep checking back. If you are looking for something specific, drop us a line and we'll see what we can do. All of the products in our webshop are also available in our London store.

We're right behind the Queens Theatre which is currently showing Les Miserables.
For now, for the caffeine connoisseurs you are, or are soon to be, I leave you with this:
Caffeine is my shepherd; I shall not doze.
It maketh me to wake in green pastures:
It leadeth me beyond the sleeping masses.
It restoreth my buzz:
It leadeth me in the path of conciousness for its name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of addiction,
I will fear no equal.
For thou art with me, thy sweetness and thy crema they comfort me.
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of my barista:
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over.
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the house of LJ's forever.
