Owner Pete Watkins has been serving coffee and breakfasts to happy South Londoners since 2006. Now relocated to York, he is bringing his coffee expertise to Spark:York.

CWTCH (Welsh for a little hug) are looking forward to working with people and connecting them using amazing food and coffee. Spark:York’s social purpose was the biggest attraction for Pete when he heard about the project.

He says, “Coffee and food is a fantastic way of building and connecting communities. The first community we build at Spark will be our team. We will look to train a wide range of different people from all sorts of backgrounds. We will then look at building a broad community of customers.”

CWTCH will run a ‘Suspended Coffee’ program, which allows people to buy an extra coffee to be donated to someone who needs support.

In addition to coffee, CWTCH will be serving a range of food including granola pots and breakfast rolls.
