Event Details

Prepare your taste buds for International Coffee Day with Second Shot Coffee

We invite you to be part of this cupping where you will be able to know the importance of the origin to pick your coffee as well as the different processes which the coffee goes through. Led by Guy Spurr the Head Roaster of Cast Iron Roasters and our Head of Coffee and accredited AST trainer Emilio Rodriguez, we’ll guide you through a blind cupping and have an open discussion about notes, origins and deepen your understanding of the wonderful world speciality coffee. We will taste coffees from 5 different countries and discuss the flavours and much more.

As one of the few truly multi-roaster coffee shops in London, we take pride in our rotating brewing menu and bringing some of the best beans in the world to Bethnal Green. So to celebrate the International Day of Coffee on the 1st October, we’re kicking off our event series with a cupping to give you a wider scope of the different roasting profiles and flavours of coffees. It’s a great opportunity to meet some cool people, relax, and celebrate all that is holy about our most favoured caffeinated beverage.

About Second Shot Cafe

Second Shot Coffee is the East London cafe bringing people together by tackling homelessness one espresso at a time.
At Second Shot you can get incredible coffee, great food, and a unique atmosphere, and we just so happen to be changing lives.

We employ people who have been affected by homelessness, train them as top quality baristas, before transitioning them on to past or preferred employment. We’re committed to taking our staff from where they are to where they deserve to be.

No one chooses to become homeless. A relationship breakdown, or losing your job, people that are homeless are victims of circumstance. The average person in the UK is just 2 pay checks away from becoming homeless.

We operate a pay it forward system. This is where customers can pre pay for food and drink, and later someone in need can receive the goods free of charge. When you buy a pay it forward at second shot, you can either draw on our pay it forward wall, or get 3 stamps on our loyalty card, drawing on our pay it forward wall, and then later someone in need can receive the goods free of charge.

After regular opening hours, the cafe reopens as a hub for homelessness. We partner with charities such as Finest Foundation, Providence Row Housing Association, and Who is Hussain to provide food drives, give out our pay it forwards, as well as provide advisory services to the homeless.
