We believe everyone should have access to great coffee, so we offer lessons at our SCAE (Specialised Coffee Association of Europe) coffee school here in Bermondsey: a haven of caffeine, where coffee wizardry can take place without all the demanding distractions of everyday life. We also offer students hands-on experience making and serving coffee in our shop alongside our staff.
We love being part of the local community, and we run several projects to encourage disadvantaged young people to learn new skills and get involved in our national network in the hospitality industry. Thanks to our network of blue chip clients and friends, we are able to offer great opportunities to people wanting to build a career in London’s exciting coffee scene.
