The Journey So far...

  • July 2018

    Our Humble Beginnings

    We opened our doors on a hot, sunny day in July 2018 after months of planning and building. We had just finished our barista training and had no experience of the coffee business. We even didn't know if anyone would show up... 

  • July 2019

    But You DID!

    Over the past year we have worked with many amazing people. Along the way we served a lot of coffee, and made many new friends. None of this would be possible without the help and support of our family, friends and valued customers. Whether you've shared our journey from the start, or recently discovered us. THANK YOU!

  • Looking Forward

    To the Future...

    We hope to share a happy and successful future with all our friends and customers, both old and new, as we move forward with increasing optimism. There is a chair waiting for you...
