To all those sleep-deprived, caffeine-addicted students out there you’ll be happy to know that it’s International Coffee Day!

It’s trending on Twitter, Costa is giving out free coffees and we’re all just a little bit more awake than usual.

While I can’t deny myself a Starbucks or a Costa on the regular, it’s important to support your local independent coffee shops too. So to make it easier for you, here’s a list of the 7 best independent coffee shops around our campuses.

Regent’s Street/Cavendish/LTS

You’re in central London. There’s likely a Starbucks, Caffe Nero or Costa on every street corner. Why not try somewhere different?

Marylebone

Even though I’d argue Marylebone is central too (coming from a person based in Harrow), there are still plenty of options in the area for independent coffee shops.

Harrow

Oh Harrow – we all know it’s in the middle of nowhere, so you might have to go a little further to find a good independent coffee. But don’t worry, I’ve found a couple for you.

6. Miriam’s Munchies – 405-407 Station Road – HA1 2AT

Coffee is certainly an essential part of my life, especially with the whole ‘having to get up early for university’ thing going on right now.

So if you’re nearby one of our campuses, why not give one of these places a try?
