What record stores were in the ’90s-obsessive, exquisitely curated-cafés are today. It was in celebration of this geek-chic moment that we introduced this category, topped by slow-brew leader Revolver (Gold), where process and product are inextricably linked.

Honourable Mentions to Clover machine innovator Elysian and to master chocolatier Thierry Busset’s jewel of a room.
