Visitors and residents around London need two maps. The London Underground Tube Map and The 2014 London ‘Coffee Stops Map.’ How many of you cannot start the day without coffee? Ever found yourself wandering around in London enroute to a show or studio in search of a good blend? If you have Chris Ward  “The boss who works from coffee shops” (BBC), author of the bestselling book ‘Out of Office’ created a map so you know where to go in unfamiliar surroundings. The best coffee shops London has to offer at each tube stop feature. This will be the answer to your prayers. The map is available as a limited run of posters. 100% of all sales will go to charity. This should be on the back of the Tube Map, do you agree?
