A Coffee Revolution?
— Nigeria is slowly joining the coffee revolution. Actually it’s really just Lagos. Two new cafes, MyCoffee Lagos and Blueberrys Cafe opened recently on the Island. The reception for MyCoffee, the Ukrainian-franchise coffee shop run by Ukrainian(s) in Lagos has been positive so far (see here and here).
— The homegrown coffee brand, Cafe Neo has closed the Angelika location and relocated its HQ to Agoro Odiyan Street. We also understand Yaba is the likely location of the first Cafe Neo mainland branch which is due to open in Q4 2016.
