The Lewisham Coffee Co?

OK, this has been bugging us for days now - and lots of you are wondering the same thing - what is "The Lewisham Coffee Co." and what is it doing with The Malt and Hops (formerly Albertines) pub on Lewisham Way?

The Malt and Hops only stayed open very briefly following its rebrand. Now it's closed and some "temporary signage" has popped up with The Lewisham Coffee Co. written on it. If anyone knows what's going on, please share.
