Essential to us is a product of great quality which has been sourced ethically. Most of our produce is organic. We source directly where possible, and where not use suppliers who have a direct link with the source. Our milk, fruit and veg come direct from farms in Sussex and Kent. The meat we use is from a family butcher who source free range and organic meat direct from farms.
Our espresso blend is from an East London roastery who have worked directly with the same farmers for years building relationships which ensure the the roaster has the best beans available to him and the farmer has a regular secure income.
We also work with small roasters who are too small to buy direct but buy through two very reputable importers who buy beans through auction. This ensures the farmer who produces great quality beans is rewarded for all the hard work that that takes.
Based in a Grade II listed ticket office in Queenstown Road Railway Station, Battersea, we are an independent coffee shop serving exceptionally roasted coffees from the best coffee farmers in the world. We began our story in early 2006, with a little red coffee van in the ticket hall. At weekends we would expertly squeeze the van out of the station front doors down a ramp and head off to events and farmers markets arriving back in time for the Monday morning commuters at Queenstown Road. After a number of years of negotiations and renovations we opened the shop in the disused ticket office which dates back to 1906, together with a wonderful array of original features.
