At the time of writing this, snow is definitely falling on E17.
It seems appropriate somehow, given the sort of launch planned for Leytonstone on Monday morning. A hot coffee to cradle while waiting for your Central Line of choice being the only perky thing we can think of for a bitingly-cold Monday commute. And on Valentine’s week, no less.
Because yes, folks. We are indeed launching in Leytonstone on Monday 13 February. Our first permanent E11 kiosk will be tucked just inside Leytonstone tube station, and open at 6.00 a.m. There’s something brilliant about saying ‘permanent’, as we’ve popped up in Leytonstone before but only for short-stay. This time, we’re laying down roots to become part of the fabric, and we couldn’t be more excited.
For those who know us from Walthamstow, or from our award-winning coffee subscription service, it’s the same epically-sourced, hand-roasted specilty grade coffee you’re used to from us, just a few postcodes over. There’s a lot going on with Perky Blenders at the moment, from the new website (thank you, we like it too) to this new kiosk, but there have been no compromises. Taste is still paramount and sourcing is everything. We’ll let you know if the mission changes but we can’t see it, really!
For those we haven’t met yet, well hello! Do pop along for a short one and a chat. The story is much better told in person, and anyway, that’s a whole other blog post.
