Monmouth opened its second shop on the corner of Park Street and Stoney Street here in Borough Market in 2001. The coffees on the counter are delivered every day from Monmouth's roasting site in Bermondsey.
Monmouth sells beans (whole and ground), single cone filter coffee and espresso based drinks. The cafe's organic Jersey whole milk is from Jeff Bowles in Somerset and the organic whole cane sugar is from Assukkar, Costa Rica.
