It took Sonam Sherpa one week to put together his cafe. There’s not much to it. White walls. One bench. A fern.
When his previous venue (the Place Holder pop-up) closed, he wanted to continue the steadfast format: takeaway coffee done well.
To achieve this aim he uses Small Batch's Candyman blend and a white La Marzocco Linear. He also sells pressed juices by health-food wholesaler, Matchless Goods, and a small selection of Jo Barrett cakes and Loafer pastries.
It’s a solid little local, and Sherpa’s the kind of guy to remember your name and coffee orders by heart. There aren’t too many distractions.
