Morning latte decisions are about to get harder in London.

Blank Street Coffee, the fast-growing Brooklyn, N.Y.-based chain, is bringing its inexpensive espresso to the U.K.’s capital in June. The first location is set for Fitzrovia, near University College London. The company plans to open additional locations in quick succession in the area while expanding into the residential Marylebone neighborhood.
