Please help us keep our dream of Chapter Coffee Roasters going. We're relatively new to West Kensington but even so we've built a great team, we feel part of the community and we've managed to win a number of Great Taste Awards. We know we can prosper in the future, but we need your help to get through this crisis.

We were delighted that The Mayor of London chose Chapter Coffee House as the first business to visit after lockdown (2nd July 2020).  Vinny & George chatted with him about his "London is Open" mantra and how grateful we are to be part of his Pay It Forward crowdfunding campaign.1593699118_img_5977.jpg

We don't believe in money for nothing so we've put together a list of special offers and exciting new experiences as rewards for anyone who helps us to save our beloved coffee house. You can buy for yourself, as a gift for friends and family, or we've even got some NHS thank you packages.

Our passion for our business started with us as individuals. (To learn more please take a look at the video above.)

Vinny: "My journey to roasting my own coffee started age 9 at Papa's roastery in Brazil. I like to think every cup of coffee at Chapter has in it the skill and attention to detail I learnt from my Papa. He taught me that each bean is individual and you can sense what the coffee needs by listening to it at its peak tasting point, known in Brazil as the 'first crack'. My skills have developed alongside new technologies and my goal is to use them to create the most delicious coffee for my fellow Londoners at our Coffee House in West Ken."

George: "I love cakes and baking. After years of delivering sweet treats across London and beyond I was in search of the perfect coffee to go with them. That's when I found Vinny roasting in his back garden, the rest they say is history, but we want to keep adding to that story!"

We have found an equally passionate team to help us build up Chapter Coffee House into the community hub we've dreamt of. Just before Covid-19 hit we'd struck the winning combination. During lock-down our priority stayed the same as it always has been:

Take care of our team, keep our coffee tasting great for everyone in need of that perfect cup and make sure everyone helping us can take care of their most important assets: their people.

Now we are asking you, our loyal customers, friends, Chapter Coffee and Story Time family extended family of wonderful suppliers and Londoners in general for support. We want to be there for you when you need a take-away coffee, a friendly chat, or an amazing breakfast. Supporting us in this way will ensure that we are here for you when we all get back on our feet. With your help we can look forward to that day!

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
