Who we are
Old Spike isn’t your typical specialty coffee roaster. It is the UK’s first Social Enterprise, Specialty Coffee Roaster.
We source, roast & pack some of the finest coffee available whilst offering meaningful employment to those affected by homelessness. 65% of our profits are used to support people affected by homelessness through a dedicated barista training academy in partnership with the Change Please Foundation. Put simply, every bag of coffee you buy goes some way to helping end homelessness here in the UK. We also do our bit for the environment and plant a tree for every bag purchased.
We think coffee tastes better with a hint of social purpose, we hope you do too.
What’s it like to work for Old Spike Roastery?
We are a small, ambitious team with a mobile workforce. We pride ourselves on our coffee quality, social impact and environmental sustainability. These core values are at the heart of our business and how we operate.
Our head office is based out our roastery and training academy in Peckham, South East London.
‘Always fantastic coffee, and wonderful friendly service. Great place and ethically sourced too.’
‘Amazing coffee shop in Peckham! Awesome values and the coffee is so good. Bought some beans too, they kindly ground the coffee and it’s packaged beautifully! Great gift for a coffee lover.’
‘Coffee roasters of experience: Thomas, a friendly ninja, both light of footstep and deft of hand with V60, made me a nice brew and insisted upon it being done the proper way. It tasted good. Best cup in peckham. Maybe London, even. They roast their own beans and sell them and give homeless people jobs. Do you need to go there? Definitely, yes.’
