Giant cat and bastion of cuteness Hello Kitty is this year celebrating her 50th anniversary – and what better way to announce your arrival into middle age than by teaming up with an equally cult-ish coffee brand?

To celebrate her birthday year, the Sanrio character is going to be appearing in person (in kitten?) on the first day of the pop-up at the Grind coffee truck in Old Spitalfields Market, east London.

The pop-up will take place from May 23 to June 6 and will be in honour of the Grind coffee brand’s limited edition collab with Hello Kitty.

The special Hello Kitty coffee – an iced strawberry matcha – will be available for the duration of the pop-up, and there’ll also be a range of exclusive Grind x Hello Kitty merch, including t-shirts and travel coffee mugs, for sale. 

The first 500 customers to visit the pop-up will receive a free Hello Kitty sticker pack.
