In September 2017, e5 opened the doors of a new café called e5 Roasthouse, situated in Poplar Union. One of their aims for opening the new cafe was to provide employment for the participants who had taken part in our Just Bread training.

Along with roasting coffee, they were making flatbreads, and serving breakfast, lunch, pizzas, cakes and pastries. Their lunch options were inspired by flavours from the Mediterranean and Levant regions, and were organic and sustainably sourced where possible.

The Roasthouse collaborated with the Refugee Council to provide employment and training for refugees, and our aim was to donate 30% of profits from e5 Roasthouse to support refugee organisations.
