Following our relocation to Walthamstow we have quickly forged new links with other young businesses in this dynamic part of East London. Chief among them is Perky Blenders, the small-batch speciality roaster and café team making waves on the London scene and right on our new doorstep in E17. Perky Blenders already have a couple of cafes and have done various pop-ups alongside their core roasting business, but were intrigued by the exposure and reach a Velopresso could offer them. As we are near neighbours we decided to begin a collaboration, kicking off by teaming up for the Birchbox x Oliver Bonas pop-up in a central London gallery. We followed this up with coffee services for more local events including the Healthy Streets Conference (pictured) hosted by Waltham Forest Council where their ZED (Zero Emissions Delivery) bicycle courier service for local businesses was launched. Next up is Rollapaluza’s fantastic Urban Hill Climb bike race in Highgate. Keep an eye on Instagram to see where we go next with our Velopresso pedal-powered coffee trike ‘powered by’ Perky Blenders Forest Blend.
