For many of us, starting the day without a quality cup of coffee is unthinkable. But in these lockdown days, normality has been turned on its head and quality coffee has been replaced by whatever’s left on the Mercadona shelf. Well, you can now restore a semblance of sanity, with divine offerings from some of the city’s best roasters, delivered straight to your door.
