Wood St Coffee - a month old today

Happy birthday Wood St Coffee! You're a month old today!

The first month has gone swimmingly and we've already been asked if we're going to be open on more days of the week or do something more permanent. The answer is - we'd love to! But being practical souls, we're planning to take things one step at a time and try to grow the business organically rather than take out a giant loan or rush into something before we're ready. 

Starting something new is always scary and there's rarely reward without risk. Currently, our mantra is something like the below: 
Thank you!
So... potentially big things ahead. But really we want to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone that has supported us so far. Friends, family, regulars, one timers. Everyone that has tweeted about us, liked us on Facebook or told their friends about us. 

Your feedback is what inspires us so please continue to let us (and the world) know what you think of our coffee. We'd really love your help to get the word out so if you have a spare few minutes and want to recommend us on your favourite website, or tweet your favourite magazine please do! Introduce us to your friend that writes a blog and we'll shout you both a coffee. If you need photos or want to chat to us just let us know - you can tweet us @woodstcoffee or email

Wood St Coffee - week 2

So, last Sunday the weather was Hot Hot Hot and looks like this weekend will be the same. The surprising turn to summer prompted an emergency dash for another cool box and a shed load of ice so that we could rise to the occasion with some iced coffees. 

After some careful research we settled on the cold brew method to delicately extract the coffee over 12 -14 hours so that the flavour is still there (and the caffeine) but without any bitterness. We were pretty impressed with the results, and so were our customers:

"So excited about @woodstcoffee - loved my iced coffee this morning. See you next week"

"An ice coffee of champions from @woodstcoffee. Good on you @WoodStMarket"

"@woodstcoffee best ice coffee ever. Top work guys!"

Andy Murray may have stolen everyone away in the afternoon but with that winning performance we suppose we can forgive him!

We'll be serving cold brew iced coffees again tomorrow - see you for a spot in the sunshine and a some ice cold refreshment! 

Open Sundays, 11 - 4 
Wood Street Indoor Market (Marlowe Road entrance).

Wood St Coffee, Walthamstow, E17

We've arrived! 

Last week saw the first Wood St Coffee pop up at Wood Street Indoor Market E17. It went down a storm, if we do say so ourselves, with most people seeking us out after hearing about it on Twitter. It seems like there's a massive demand in the local area for good coffee and we're more than happy to oblige. Here's some of the love we received on the day:

“Happy to report it’s now possible to get a flat white (and a good flat white at that) in #woodstreet thanks to @woodstcoffee.”

"Such good coffee! Think @WoodStMarket will be regular haunt on a Sunday from now on."

"Finally, good coffee has arrived in Walthamstow! Thanks @woodstcoffee."

"@woodstcoffee @WoodStMarket Thanks for the great coffee, & even a sunny spot to enjoy it on Marlowe Rd."

With beans from Climpson’s and Sons; organic milk; and cakes made right here in Walthamstow by Norman Loves and Lucy Scott Traybakes - really, we're just a platform for East London to show off!

Furniture restorer The Chair Man has kindly extended his ‘chair testing area’ so you can settle in and enjoy your coffee whilst listening to the soulful sounds of Hypstz’ extensive record collection or opt for the outside area opposite the park on Marlowe Road.

Here's our menu in case you're thinking of popping by and some pictures from the first day. More to follow!
