We’re launching the World’s Most Sustainable Coffee Shop in London and we want you to join us. From April 18th to April 20th, we’ll be setting up shop in Old Street Station for a jam-packed, caffeine fuelled couple of days, with a finale event hosted by Time Out. Spoiler alert: espresso martinis galore.

Our daily coffee habits are far from sustainable

It’s time to make a change. There are 2.5 billion single-use coffee cups thrown away every year in the UK and we want to help you make a difference. We’ll only have reusable cups in the shop, which will be available to buy. Once you buy a forever cup, you’ll be able to get free refills for the rest of the pop-up.

We’re not stopping there though, even if you bring your own Keep Cup, you’ll get a free cuppa too.

Not only will we be highlighting ways you can make changes to your daily routine, but also showcasing the importance of ethically sourcing your beans and how you can be more mindful, from realising just how far your beans have come to learning how recycled coffee grinds can be used.

The beans we’ll be using are our Next Generation Coffee beans, sourced directly through a project that educates, trains and supports the younger generation of coffee farmers in Colombia and Tanzania. You’ll get a chance to see some of these farmers yourselves, by trying our VR glasses in the shop.
Next Generation sustainable
These beans will also be available for you to grind yourself and take home with you. Our award-winning Nespresso compatible, plant-based – which means fully compostable – capsules will be available to buy there too.

Find us!

We’ll have loads more quirks and activities in the shop too, so come and say hello, have a cuppa and make a change.

Where? Unit 8, Old Street Roundabout, London
When? 18th & 19th April: 7.30am-6pm and 20th April: 7.30am-4.30pm, followed by a Time Out event (get your tickets here!)

In celebration of National Chocolate Soufflé Day, we’ve teamed up with our friend Amie to bring you these gorgeously gooey Coffee Chocolate Soufflés.

These decadent little pots of joy are not only delicious, but easy to make and the perfect treat for any occasion.

soufflés
Amie’s recipe replaces traditional butter and sugar ingredients with coconut based alternatives as she prefers to use the least processed ingredients. Our All Day Americano works well in this recipe as the chocolate notes in the coffee complement the chocolate base of the soufflés beautifully.

This recipe takes about 15 minutes to prep, 15 minutes to cook and serves two.

Ingredients

2 tbsp. coconut oil (solid) + extra for greasing ramekins
1 tbsp. hot (not boiling) water
½ tsp. Percol All Day Americano instant coffee
55g dark chocolate
Pinch salt
1 large egg
30g coconut sugar + extra for dusting

Method

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200 °C.
  2. Grease two ramekins with coconut oil and dust with a little bit of coconut sugar.
  3. Mix the water and coffee until granules have fully dissolved and leave to one side.
  4. Melt the coconut oil and chocolate in a bowl over some boiling water, then take off the heat.
  5. Next, whisk the egg yolk into the melted chocolate and coconut oil mixture and add 1/3 of the coconut sugar along with the coffee and set aside.
  6. In a separate bowl beat the egg white until it forms stiff peaks.
  7. Add remaining coconut sugar to the chocolate mixture and fold it into the egg white. 
  8. Evenly distribute the mixture between two ramekins and pop in the oven straight away to bake for 15 minutes or until they have risen by around 2cm.
  9. Take out and serve immediately, before your soufflé even thinks about sinking. We’d serve it with frozen coconut yoghurt but you could also add cream, ice cream, or anything else that takes your fancy.
Enjoy and share your pics with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!
