Square Mile is a working coffee roastery and as such during normal working hours our staff, visitors, deliveries and daily activities may incur some noise. We reserve the right to decline requests for hire, access to and use of certain equipment.

“The lab and classroom at Square Mile is amazing. It’s spacious, well-equipped, filled with light and is perfect for focusing on the coffee without distraction. Q classes can be long and sometimes tedious, so the quality of the space really matters. I’d highly recommend taking a class there. It’s been a joy to teach in that space”

“On several occasions, Falcon Specialty have hired the SCA campus ( cupping lab) to host Q Grader courses at Square Mile Coffee Roasters in Bethnal Green, East London and we have been most impressed by the quality of the facilities. Both the cupping lab and classroom are extremely spacious, airy and full of natural light (though black-out blinds are provided for blind cuppings). The campus is very well equipped and fully meets the specifications of CQI and SCA.
A bonus is the lab’s perfect location with excellent rail and bus routes on the doorstep and it’s just a few minutes stroll to the happening Broadway Market where there are plenty of good restaurants, cafes, bars and hotels.”
