EVERY DETAIL MATTERS.
The origin of the beans, the knowledge, the skill, the coffee machine set up, the grind, the weight, the timing, the temperature, the cup shape. Every improvement we make gives us another one to work on.
OUR GOALS.
We aim to offer excellent coffee in an inspiring environment. So only the best coffee beans, milk, coffee machine and cups, and baristas that are always improving. And we always listen to feedback, taking it into account as the business grows.
OUR BARISTAS.
Becoming a great barista is an endless process. We are constantly looking to perfect our coffee, by absorbing techniques, ideas and training. There are a lot of great independent coffee shops springing up and the competition is great for raising the bar.
NEVER AUTOMATED.
The quality of our coffee is controlled by our baristas, not our machine. We use a Marzocco Linea Three Group Coffee Machine, and a Mazza Super Joli Grinder. Both of which allow our baristas complete control of the process to create the best espresso shots possible.
GREAT INGREDIENTS?
We have our own unique blend of beans, while our filter and decaf are from Origin Coffee Roasters. Our Tea is by Teapigs. Our cakes are homemade. Our Chocolate is from Cadbury. There’s the Marzocco Linea coffee machine, geeky baristas, a Mazza grinder, a great atmosphere, the music, the location...

Once there was a writer who had a deaf cat. It used to sit on his desk in his studio while he wrote. The cat wasn’t an annoyance or a hindrance. It was like the other ornaments around his desk. It was there to calm him, cheer him and inspire him. Did it work?
        The writer’s name was Charles Dickens...
