There's Been A Wonka-Esque Addition To London's Coffee Scene

There's Been A Wonka-Esque Addition To London's Coffee Scene

You know what's been missing from your daily cup of java? The chance to sup it in an awesome sci-fi setting. And Roasting Plant Coffee near London Bridge is as darn near to Starbucks-meets-Interstellar as you'll find. It's no gimmick either.

The centrepiece of this US-import is the JavaBot, which uses transparent, pneumatic tubes to whizz coffee above visitors' heads, transporting the beans between storage, roasting and cup. They say the impressive process isn't just for show, and we're sure they're right, but that doesn't stop it from being entertaining to see in action.

Roasting Plant Coffee is located at 4 Borough High Street, SE1 9QQ.
