We thought it was about time to add some more delicious coffee to our offering and where better to start than with the original speciality coffee Social Enterprise.
What we love: Old Spike’s primary mission is to help reduce homelessness in the UK through training and employment within speciality coffee. Whether that's assisting the head roaster at the roastery or working in one of the cafes as a barista, Old Spike are committed to supporting their trainees from training to employment.
Old Spike's ethics are based on the principles of direct trade, quality and seasonality. Sourcing direct from the country of origin and working only with high grade, seasonal coffee, they are able to secure a better price for the farmer which can be 4-5 times higher than the Fairtrade minimum.
