Wow, 2020. What a year you’ve been. But among the chaos, there’s one thing we can be thankful for: those independent shops that have been able to remain open to power through these difficult times. At Coffy, we pride ourselves on supporting local independent coffee shops in London and strive to give them the love they deserve. We want to encourage coffee lovers to step away from big chains and enjoy great coffee at the finest independent coffee shops in London.
Local high street shops are at the heart of every community and a thriving high street is key to boosting the potential of a village or town where people socialise and shop. So let’s talk about some of these wonderful coffee shops in London who have been carefully selected to partner with the Coffy app!
Coffy picks stores that take pride in their craft and want to go the extra mile for customers. Green Mosaic have a state of the art pizza oven and hand make their own dough. They use a special ‘healthy flour’, so customers can enjoy pizza with no guilt attached! Like all of our stores, Green Mosaic are a local coffee shop team who want to please customers and love serving great coffee and amazing pizza.
Situated on the busy Putney high street, Social Brew offer a calm amidst the storm. They have Açai bowls, Union Coffee and a welcoming environment to enjoy brunch, get work done or meet a friend (when restrictions permit). Freshly made bread in-house means you can take home a taste of local too.
Many of our London coffee shop partners stock items that are made locally and aren’t available elsewhere, bringing something unique into their community. These include rare finds and exciting items that aren’t mass produced so you’re spoilt for choice when you pop in for your coffee. Beans and Bubbles sell coffee cups made from coffee waste. Kaffeeform is a sustainable material made from used coffee grounds and other renewable resources. As a coffee cup it’s given a perfect new life, and a perfect start to being more eco-friendly. Beans and Bubbles are an eco friendly store, so you can shop locally knowing you’re doing good for the environment as well as the community!
Our partner stores are often run by people who live nearby and are within the community themselves. As we all continue to recover from the pandemic, the experience of buying locally and from a friendly face offers a dose of normality. You’ll find that every one of our coffee shop partners are different and bring in some of their own cultures, stocking products from their hometown and maintaining the essence of their roots in-store. Coffee Boxx in Walthamstow bring a taste of Mumbai to their contemporary cafe, so you can indulge in a taste of the Indian West Coast when you try their offerings. They use different spices as toppings on their array of brunch options and also make their own Chai in-house, so you know you’re getting the best and freshest ingredients!
Coffy is proud to partner with such a diverse range of stores all of whom are independent coffee shops. Download our app and start discovering and supporting independent stores who really need you right now!
