Prav and James, aka My New Canvas, you’ll remember from their recent 500Cups project where they gave away loads of cups of coffee around Christmas & New Year, now they are back bigger and better with a popup coffee shop in the Portsmouth & Southsea train station. The shop has been open for a few weeks and is a coffee/espresso bar serving a local cup where the bean is roasted in Winchester and the milk is fresh from cows on Hayling Island. Very local. The blend itself is called ‘Dr Drake’, which is 40% Colombian, 30% Brazil & 30% El Salvador and roasted by The Roasting Party in Winchester.
All the profits from their social enterprise are going into projects helping those affected by drugs and alcohol – plus they’re also working on an number of other interesting social projects too.
