When Ground Coffee Society first opened its doors in late 2008, it wasn't just about the coffee. Dave (owner & founder) was a professional drummer, and had toured and played for many years of his life. So he opened a drum shop, with a twist - amazing coffee! After realising the queues going out the door weren't for the drums but for the caffeine on offer, Dave made a quick and easy decision to remove the drums from the equation and focus on the coffee being served.
As the years went by, word spread like wild fire that Putney was on the London coffee map. By now Ground Coffee Society was at the heart of Putney’s community, with coffee loving Aussie’s and Kiwi’s travelling for miles for their daily caffeine fix. Little to our knowledge one of those individuals was one of the UK directors of the Westfield group, who went on to offer Dave a short term space at the all new Westfield shopping centre at Stratford City for London’s 2012 Olympic games. This made Ground Coffee Society the most popular coffee spot throughout the games.
Now, 8 years on, we supply and work with world renowned sporting events within motorsport, sailing, tennis, golf, cricket and rugby; restaurants and cafés; and high end fixed venues, whilst our team at our own cafe in Putney continue make thousands of coffee’s, breakfasts & lunches that are enjoyed week in week out by passing cyclists, rowers, runners, business people, celebrities, musicians, actors & actresses, parents on the school run, and thousands of coffee loving locals that all want one thing... Great coffee, great food and friendly service.
