Brockley Central Perk: Coffee Hit comes to SE4

We're always excited when a new business chooses Brockley, except possibly when they're a van-hire company that chooses to locate on a roundabout with nowhere but pavement to park their vans.

Businesses add life to the area and help sustain shops and cafes during the day. Anecdotally, there seem to be an increasing number of small traders choosing to locate in Brockley and Coffee Hit is another welcome addition to Brockley.

Coffee Hit is a supplier to speciality coffee houses and the owner Paul is a friend of Ross Brown, of Browns of Brockley, himself an ex-coffee industry exec.

They've just signed a lease to move in to the Brockley Cross Business Centre and Paul explained why they chose Brockley:

"I came across Brockley when I visited a customer of ours Ross who owns Browns of Brockley who recently opened on Coulgate Street. We got talking about his great location, easy access to the city and affordable rents.

"I'd been racking my head for a few months on where our new premises was going to be but on my visit to Brockley I knew I had found my location. It had everything I was looking for.

"Our new premises will allow our business to grow, with better storage, distribution and access for and to our customers. It will also allow us to open a showroom where we can display the products we sell and customers can come down and try the products and see if its the right product for them.

"Our customers are the new wave of speciality Coffee shops that are opening up around the UK at present. Nearly all of these, like Browns of Brockley, are independently run by passionate individuals who really care and have love for the coffee they sell. Also, home users who want to make great coffee at home. We can set you up making delicious coffee cheaper than you think.

"With the World Barista Championship in London next year the worlds attention is now on London and the UK and the buzz that its creating is great to watch and be part of. We hope with our move to Brockley we can bring some of that attention to Brockley."


Thanks to Paul and welcome to Brockley!

Top story. I hope Lewisham Council notes that Brockley is attracting businesses which could take their pick of London areas. They deserve support and investment, as does the wider neighbourhood.

Can we have some coffee in Nunhead and Queens Road please? It's not fair that Brockley is getting it all.

Hey if we're begging for cafes, New Cross needs help the most I'd say!

Pretty please

New Cross isn't quite a cafe desert - Goldmsiths cafe for a start.
And Anon - if you're in Nunhead, then Frog on the Green does better coffee than I've had in Brockley.

I was ready to slam my fist on the desk at the prospect of another cafe.

But a press release about a new supplier without another tedious mention of organicness or fair trade 'ethics'?

For once, I say welcome aboard

Just for the record, it wasn't a press release, I heard about it via the power of twitter.

I didn't mean "press release" in the negative sense :)

Now we have two things to thank Browns of Brockley for - the best coffee in the area and attracting additional business to Brockley. Go Browns!

Absolutely

I like the Lavazza in the Brockley Barge - just over a quid and perfectly good while waiting for a train. But I'm a savage.
