Specialty Coffee on Campus

We are excited to have partnered with Dark Arts Coffee Roastery, based in Hackney, London for our newest coffee shop! 

If you love your coffee as much as we do, you’l be interested to know we have chosen a natural processed Yellow Bourbon from Brazil, with notes of chocolate, black grape, brazil nut and caramel in the cup.

If you’re in a rush, you should speak to our baristas to see what our monthly specials are on filter. Head barista Diego selects his favourite pair each month to bring you a delicious, ever-changing coffee offer. 

Want it at home too? You can pop in and purchase your beans to go!

Good Food, Good Mood

Our fresh selection of pastries are always something to look forwards to for quick breakfasts on the go, or mid-morning pick-me-ups! 

For lunch you can enjoy sandwiches, fresh sushi, salad boxes and pastries as well as hot daily soups with crusty bread.
