Department of Coffee & Social Affairs opened its first shop in 2010 as one of the original pioneers of the London Coffee scene. As of December 2018, we have 20 cafes in the UK and our own roastery and bakery, and we plan to continue to grow with our eyes set on more sites in London and across the UK. 

We were very proud to win UK and Irelands Best Coffee Chain at Allegra’s 2018 European Coffee Awards in Milan in November 2018 and plan to continue growing with our eyes set on more sites in London and across the UK.

We strive to offer the best quality product and customer service, all day - every day, and we can’t do this without amazing people working with us. Working at Department with such a talented, diverse, experienced and professional team will enable you to broaden your knowledge and experience through your shared love for coffee.
