Our subterranean soup shop located in Old Street Station is run by a small, loyal dedicated team. Team Members spend up to 3 months learning every aspect of the business from baking cakes, cooking soups, preparing sandwiches, frothing cappuccinos, squeezing juices, to simply manning the tills. We rotate positions every 2 weeks to provide job enrichment and create a strong multi skilled and adaptable team, essential to meet the challenge of making a fresh product from scratch every day. Team Members can opt to take on additional management responsibilities to further their skill set and salary. Meanwhile our dedicated baristas sleep breathe and consume all things coffee, attending trade shows, cupping events, seeking to develop and educate the team. We hold daily 'Team Briefs' to discuss issues and plan the day ahead, keeping the whole team in the loop.
