let's make; beautiful coffee together

Bringing locally roasted artisan coffee to the streets and events of London

make; made it!

On 9 July make; coffee finished a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter and reached the target with £770 to spare. Two weeks later all of the pledges had been collected.. and once the fees had been paid, on 25 July make; coffee received the funds to pay for the van conversion. 

As the work had already been done and the van was ready to go, no time was wasted and it was delivered on the same day. I was returning home with my good friends Jonny and Alice, just after we had completed some further barista training at the roastery. And there we saw the little Piaggio being wheeled out of a big white van having arrived that evening from Newcastle.

I felt totally exhausted but extremely happy and the work which has been done is really beautiful. It was too late for coffee but we celebrated by making frothy hot chocolates in the dark!

Thank you so much to everyone who has already been a part of this. More news - and pictures -will follow shortly. For now I'm busy practicing with the new equipment and updating my budget with the final costs.

The make; coffee launch date is now set for Monday 11 August 2014 and I really can't wait!

a big make; coffee competition!

Exciting announcement today: make; is launching a BIG COMPETITION! 

Everyone who backs make; coffee on Kickstarter for £25 or over in the next five days - and those who already have - have a chance of winning a year's supply of glorious fresh coffee! 

Wouldn't that be pretty wonderful? You can choose either freshly brewed cups served to your exact requirements or packs of freshly roasted coffee delivered to your very door, along with tasting notes and brewing guides.

So tell your friends, colleagues, coffee enthusiasts... and they will all be entered into the make; coffee prize draw. With some lovely runners up prizes to boot!

Happy Thursday :) Thanks for all your support and backing so far. It's the final countdown!
