WHo We Are
An ethical coffee shop? I hear you question, everything we do we do with the environment and suppliers in mind. From ethically sourced beans from the pharmacy roasters in Brighton, to organic milk from local dairy farmers, we use compostable coffee cups and try to be as carbon neutral as we can.
On the face of it, we could very well say that Ground is about serving deliciously prepared food and drink with warm and attentive service. And, along with a good deal of cleaning and maintenance, that’s pretty much what we do everyday, enthusiastically and consistently.
We buy our single origin coffees from local eco roasters Pharmacie Coffee Roasters and our loose-leaf tea is the finest from Canton Tea Company.
We make most of our food from scratch in our kitchen, using a great deal of locally sourced, organic and/or seasonal produce. Our milk is organic.
What We Stand For
We believe in hiring nice people and bringing out the best in them by asking them to simply be themselves. They all work very hard and, apart from the occasional drama, there is a great chemistry between them. It’s a winning formula and, needless to say, this hiring approach won’t be changing anytime soon!
We could go on to say so much more about the shops and what we think makes us ‘Ground,’ but it’s probably best to hear it straight from the people who matter most – our customers:
‘I’m quite fussy about good coffee and Ground never disappoints. Consistently great coffee, good food, friendly staff. There is a nice cosy feel to the place and you could stay there for hours… It’s always busy which is a great sign.’
‘…you don’t needs points out of ten on lots of factors, because Ground just *feels* right. It’s about very high quality coffee (superb flat white), for sure, and great beans to take out, but it’s also about the vibe – great music, relaxed feel, lovely staff.’
It’s very simple, really. We like what we do and we want to share it with others. For more details you can check out the rest of our website or, better yet, come by one of the shops.
