Leicester Café Creates Coffee Brand to Support City’s Homeless
Posted on 19th December 2023
CAFÉ NO:7, which is located next to the Guildhall and Leicester Cathedral, has created its own unique coffee brand to support One Roof Leicester - a homelessness charity who are deeply rooted in Leicester.
Founded in 2012, the charity provides accommodation and support to single people who are homeless in Leicester to recover, reset and rebuild their lives.
Run by the team at St Martins House Conference Centre, CAFÉ NO:7 will serve One Roof Coffee for customers to enjoy in its café, to take-away or buy to take home. The espresso blend is sustainably sourced from small cooperatives around the globe and is made up of 100% arabica coffee beans, with notes of cherry, chocolate and toffee.
The coffee is supplied by Jute Coffee, an award-winning coffee supplier who roast all of their beans by hand from their small roastery in the Northamptonshire countryside. They are also the UK’s first coffee supplier to introduce a zero-waste system whereby the coffee beans supplied to commercial customers is delivered in reusable tubs.
For every coffee sold, CAFÉ NO:7 will donate money to One Roof Leicester to support their vision of eradicating homelessness through positively transforming people’s lives.
Nigel Jobson, Business Director of St Martins House Conference Centre, said “We’re proud to support One Roof Leicester and help them ensure that all people experiencing homelessness are provided with sustainable housing and ongoing relevant support. Every cup of One Roof Coffee our customers buy will help change someone’s life for the better.”
Salma Ravat, CEO of One Roof Leicester, said “We’re so excited to have a coffee brand named after our charity and we are very grateful to the team at CAFÉ NO:7 for choosing to support One Roof Leicester in this way. We are experiencing a significant increase in demand for our accommodation and support, therefore every penny we receive in donations goes towards providing safe and secure homes and intense support which enables our residents to positively move into long-term accommodation.”
CAFÉ NO:7 is open Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 3.00pm and 9.00am to 3.00pm on weekends at 7 Peacock Lane, Leicester LE1 5PZ.
