Time Out says

What’s that in the corner? Looking like a tiny steam engine, that my friend is a coffee roaster and it's the reason why caffeine heads flock here. The place is tiny, with a handful of seats along the bare brick walls or on the bench out front. Started purely as a roastery in 2014, it soon opened its doors to enthusiastic Peckhamites – and now runs coffee carts across the city, too.

You'll spot Old Spike’s seasonal, single-origin beans elsewhere, but the mother ship offers a freshly roasted espresso experience, plus interesting filters. Our Ethiopian Rocko Mountain was a super-smooth brew, fruity and chocolatey. Barista Lucy was Old Spike’s first homeless employee, part of its ongoing work with homeless charities (that’s why its nomadic carts are called Change Please).

Eats come from Crosstown doughnuts and there’s artisan hot chocolate and Good & Proper teas, too. But really, why would you, when the coffee’s this good?
