Second Shot Coffee is an incredible café based in Bethnal Green, London. Working with Café by Crisis and The Connection at St Martins in the Fields, Second Shot Coffee is staffed by formerly homeless individuals. All profits made from the café are used to give those members of staff training and one-to-one support to get them back into secure employment.
As well as serving high quality food and drinks, Second Shot Coffee also acts as an after hours hub for the homeless community providing support and advice, food drives and takes part in a Pay It Forward Scheme.
As part of this social and philanthropic ethos, Second Shot Coffee is working with local vendors who share this approach to helping change lives. This includes The Dusty Knuckle, Luminary Bakery and Rise for beautiful bread, cakes and quiches as well as ourselves supplying Second Shot Coffee with the full range of Kettle Shed teas.
Second Shot Coffee is open from Monday – Friday, 7am-6pm and from 9am-7pm at the weekends. It is located on Bethnal Green Road, just a short walk from the tube station. So, why not pop in on your way to work and help support this fantastic social enterprise!
Remember, at The Shed, we really do ‘Give A Cup’! Every time you buy a box of tea, we donate tea directly to homeless shelters across the UK. Our packaging is made from recycled cardboard and our fuso tea bags are biodegradable, so we don’t harm the planet.
