It’s a pleasure to be a part of the Colne Valley’s ever-changing industrial and craft heritage. The climate and terrain of the valley shaped the early years of its history and now the landscape and weather-beaten weavers cottages and mills house a growing community of artisan and craft producers, supported by a network of independent, specialist outlets.

Pop up cafe day

Our pop up cafe days are back now (on the third Saturday of the month).
The main cafe is now pre-bookable to ensure a calmer environment to enjoy your coffee (it did get a bit busy before!). Just click the "More Info" link to follow though to the booking site. There are a few tables available if you turn up on the day but on a "first come first serve" basis.
We will have a great selection of cakes and pastries made locally, including some vegan and gluten free options.

If there is not space inside though, we do have our take away hatch running at the same time, to grab a coffee and sit outside on a few benches or by the river.

We will also have a shop running to stock up on all your beans from home and essential coffee kit.
We will be roasting in the morning and so you can always buy that days roast in any weight you like; even bring your own tub or jar along to save on packaging.

Everything will be running from 9.30 am until 3.00pm

As a food production facility, I'm afraid that we can not allow dogs in the building, but are welcome for those using the take away hatch.
