Popular London chain choose Chiswick as their next venture
Chiswick High Road is soon to have another coffee shop, after Black Sheep Coffee announced its intention to take over the premises at number 322 – formerly occupied by the Joy Boutique.
The company, which is a common sight in northern and eastern parts of central London, says it is the only coffee retailer in the world to serve 100% specialty grade Robusta Coffee in a market dominated by Arabica.
It was founded in 2013 by university flatmates, Eirik Holth and Gabriel Shohet, and has expanded from a stall in Camden to over 35 branches across the capital. Most recently, it opened a new branch in Fulham.
Its signature flavours include Robusta Revival, Rebel Decaf and Blue Volcano. They also serve Norwegian waffles.
The café will be 105 sq meters and fit 46 covers according to designs submitted for planning permission. They have also applied for advertising displays outside the premises.
A spokesperson for the group said:
“We are opening in Chiswick because our mission is to rid the world of average tasting coffee, so Chiswick is the next spot that needs some Black Sheep Coffee!”
