Combat2Coffee

We are an Ipswich based not for profit, using coffee as a social and wellbeing engagement tool. Our Coffee Hub in Ipswich Town Centre is where we serve coffee, but also use that contact to have conversations about wellbeing and promote support services available for veterans and their families. We train aspiring baristas and support the skills and community engagement of veterans in custody - have established coffee bean roasteries in local prisons which support veterans in custody. As lockdown releases, we’ll be back attending community events with our Combat2Coffee mobile units. Visit our website and follow our social media. Changing the world with one sip at a time!
