Hi! I am Bex, a London-based blogger, coffee addict, hamburgerologist and film fan. Double Skinny Macchiato is dedicated to the search for cracking coffee, brilliant burgers and marvellous movies in London and on my travels. You can read more about my blog's name here.

The five coffees pictured in my header are (L-R): Bluebird, NYC; Fowlds, London; The Keen Bean, Oxford; Omotesando Koffee, Tokyo; and Grind Coffee Bar, London.

I take all of the photos on this blog myself, unless otherwise stated; photos of me are taken by friends, family or self-timer. If you would like to use any of my photos, please contact me first. Between 2011 and June 2013, most of my photos were taken with my beloved Canon PowerShot S95, which I cannot recommend highly enough; it's tiny, but punches way above its weight on photo quality. In July 2013, I finally caved and bought a DSLR: the Canon EOS 100D, which is small and light enough to carry around easily and which takes great photos. I'm still learning how to use it and mainly use Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 and Canon 20mm f/2.8 lenses. Since the start of this blog, BlackBerry and then iPhone pictures have also featured; this—plus a few manual blog template updates—means that image quality in early posts isn't great.

If you work with a brand that you think would be a good fit with the content of my blog and would be of interest to my readers, please feel free to email me on doubleskinnymacchiato@gmail.com.
