So says Square Mile Coffee Roasters!
The award winning coffee roasters based in East London decided to host a special evening for their customers (speciality coffee shop owners and baristas in and around London) this week. With talks ranging from Sustainability in Coffee from the guys at Bio-Bean to Opportunities for Staff Development by one of the Founders himself, James Hoffman, the theme was to help promote positive change in different areas.
They passionately source, buy, import, roast and deliver the best coffee they can get hold of to make London famous for good coffee. To ensure that they serve the best coffee on the night, Allison Scott, their Wholesale Manager, decided to do something even more special to create that positive change. She wanted to add a drop of social conscience into every beautifully crafted cup of coffee.
Having stopped by at our pop-up stand last year at Southwark Cathedral to buy the MyLondon 2016 calendar, Alli remembered our strap line which is 'where homelessness, great art and coffee meet', and decided to invite us in to decorate an entire wall with wonderful art and photographs to showcase the talent to their customers.
We jumped at this offer and had the room transformed in no time, with the help of one of the artists/photographer, ROL. Many thanks for the opportunity, Alli and big thanks to everyone at the Square Mile Roasters.
Hope the guests loved the added drop of positive change .....!
