We love a family business here at London Food Essentials and our weekend inspiration this week is London's H.R. Higgins, purveyor of coffee and quality teas. This third-generation business first sold coffee from an attic room in South Molton Street W1 before opening its retail store on the same street two years later. H.R. Higgins was a true connoisseur, a man of vision, steadfast in his conviction that Londoners were ready to appreciate the art of good coffee. In 1986, H.R.Higgins moved to its current location in Duke Street, opening its tea and cafe salon downstairs. A wonderful British institution and one of London's first generation of coffee roasters.
