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.

Delicious coffee - but to be honest it is not the best coffee that I have tasted. If you go on a weekend, prepare to stand in a line for a while. If you can come during the week, the lines are much more manageable. I was a bit hesitant to use the sugar that they have in bowls throughout the coffee shop as I thought it was a bit unsanitary especially considering how many people visit and how...more
There's clearly a reason why Monmouth has a line down the block.
I've only been once, so I can't yet put them in the same league with Blue Bottle, Stumptown, Fourbarrel, or Cafe Grumpy, but the coffees we had were strong, flavorful, and well-made, if a bit small.
