Kobo Cafe coffee




Coffee is a way of life for us. Whether it’s an espresso or Swedish style batch brew you’re after, we can guarantee you’ll love our coffee made with Caravan coffee beans.

If you’re not a coffee drinker, we also have delicious loose leaf teas by The Tea Makers, and fresh cold pressed juices and smoothies.

We are happy to work with some driven and dedicated people to be able to do what we do.

As coffee and tea consists mostly of water, it is of utter importance to use clean and balanced water. We might even say that there’s a whole world of nerdyness when it comes to water used for coffee. Anyhow…. as we have a reverse osmosis sytem in house to purify our water, we also bottle this. We have decided to donate the profit (50p) to Doctors Without Borders, also known as MSF. Not only do we admire their work, commitment, morals and humanity, but also the organisation structure and transparency that could serve as a model for similar organisations. Please check them out on https://www.msf.org.uk/

Our teas are sourced by The Tea Makers of London. The quality and range is just outstanding and the teas speak best for themselves. Come in for a cup and try!

We are happy to serve a ‘Tea of the week’ alongside our Ceylon-based English breakfast tea so you can explore the world of teas without any fuss.a

As our main partners of coffee, Caravan Coffee Roasters provides us with a smashing house espresso blend. Only top beans gives the Market Blend richness, sweetness and complexity that is hard to beat as a house espresso. We also get some other beans from their ever-changing range to fill our V60, batch brew and Aeropress. Super nice crew that works their magic just a stone throw away from Kobo.

We use high quality, sustainable ingredients

Ingredients, Allergies & Nutrition

We are quite particular when it comes to sourcing our ingredients. It should be of highest quality and as sustainable and good as possible. Otherwise we look elsewhere.

Most of our food and drinks are free from the some of the most common allergens. We have plenty of cakes and snacks that are naturally free from gluten and lactose and we keep almost everything away from refined sugar.

For our drinks, we have a selection of nut and oat milks which gives good options. We don’t use the “nut”milks that contains more emulsifiers, stabilizers, sweeteners and other crap. Our nut milks contain water, nuts and a touch of sea salt. Nothing else.

At Kobo Cafe we use a lot of nuts and seeds. We know that allergies to these products can be of a sensitive nature, so please let us know if you have a nut allergy so we can make sure that all is safe.
