Starbucks makes it very easy to find their stores, with store locators available on their website and on their app. Independent coffee shops can be harder to find because you actually have to go looking for them. Now, it doesn’t sound like it would be that difficult to locate a coffee shop – but when you want to make sure you find a good one and you are on your way to work, all that wandering around puts it out of the question. If you happen to be in London, you might want to save this map (click map to enlarge) to your phone now because it shows you where some of the best coffee shops in the city are and gives their proximity to the nearest tube station. Now if only we can get a few more of these together for other major cities!
The “Coffee Stops” map is a hobby project of Chris Ward and it is being sold as a limited release print to benefit charity. The small version might not be pretty enough to hang on your wall, but it is enough to direct you to one of the cafes included on it. And keep in mind that you can always start your own wall-sized map at home, then save a picture to your phone for easy reference when you’re out and about.
