A short film documenting Kalle Freese & Erika Haa’s trip to London in March of 2013. It’s nice to see a capture of Protein, its feel, vibe and athmosphere. That energy lives on today at Sharps Coffee Bar By DunneFrankowski located on 9 Windmill Street, in Fitzrovia.
In March 2013 we took a train to London to visit our friends and discover new places. We went to several shops, but filmed only in a couple of them - Association, Workshop, Rapha Cycle Club and Protein. Protein was established as a pop-up shop by Rob Dunne, but nowadays he is running Dunne Frankowski at Sharps.
We buy a lot of coffees from different roasters around Europe such as Workshop Coffee, but how do we find the good ones? Some of them are our old friends, but we are looking for new exciting things all the time. In this series we want to tell you a bit more about this process, but also to showcase the makers behind these fantastic coffees and the coffee shops themselves.
Fox and Favour are a creative duo, based in London, who work in photography and film. "We create inspiring, authentic work with a keen attention on the visual aesthetic. We believe beauty is not what you are looking at, but how you look at it.”\
Recently we were lucky enough to be captured by the wonderfulPhilippa Langley in this photo set for the Coffee Guide.

No matter where I travel, people are going a bit crazy for ramen. As this trend is going global. Just as any other imported food which become’s a staple in our diet, simplicity and ingredients go a long way.
Here is a great short film about Ivan Orkin, who after opening two ramen bars in its heartland of Tokyo, is still a foreigner making ramen in Long Island New York.
The latest edition to East London’s fast growing food offering. On The Bab, a new Korean Street Food restaurant opening this week on Old St in Shoreditch.
This concept is brought to you by the proprietors of Koba & Nizuni, which can be found in Fitzrovia. If you have not been to either of their prior locations, you will definitely behearing about On The Bab. This place will be packed, the food in delicious, simply, fast and fun.
This past week, I had the pleasure of working at Frieze London. Each year, for the last four years, over 60,000 visitors attend Frieze London. These visitors included those with an interest in the art world, such as curators, artists, collectors, gallerists and critics, as well as the general public.
Our friend Hoi Chi Ng of Coming Soon Coffee was invited to design a bar for the event and sit within the gallery space, alongside the art works instead of the catering section. Hence the reasoning for the elaborate bar design. The beautiful realistic marble effect, was created using a technique called Needle Felting which was positioned on industrial white felt.
We were very lucky to be operating with equipment supplied by Macro Beverage Systems paired with Bespoke Water System, with the ever friendly chat of Chloe (The Faerietale Foodie)
