One of Liverpool’s most beloved coffee shops is coming back.
We get up, we get ready and we all find ways to get through the day. We find happiness within chaos and balance within variables. Some find solace in privacy and silence and some escape through the company of others. Enter Bold Street Coffee, where both are welcome and the one constant is good coffee. We weren’t the only ones left heartbroken after Bold St Coffee’s doors spontaneously closed due to landlord issues but the good news is they’re back after smashing their Kickstarter target.
Bold Street Coffee was more than a coffee shop: it fuelled Bold Street’s growing independent community for nearly a decade. When they had to leave their home on 89 Bold Street it was bad news for customers, staff, and the street they love. But, in a brilliant twist of fate they’ve found a way to reopen in the original site. Launched on 28th May, the Bold Street Kickstarter campaign looked to raise £30,000 and ended up surpassing it.
Whilst the builders are in, Liverpool’s coffee aficionados will still be able to get their BSC kicks as the pop-up continues in Santa Maluco. Local friends over at Graffiti Spirits Group have been an amazing support for BSC, from hosting them in Santa Maluco to helping them get the lease back. There’s a real sense of community in Liverpool food scene at the moment, and once the money is raised, Liverpool can look forward to a brand spanking new Bold Street Coffee experience.
For those mornings our coffee needed a coffee, for the days we swore we’d never get through and for the Wednesdays Stan Ambrose plucked at his harp and our hearts. Thank you for the business meetings, the hellos, the goodbyes, the catchups. The first dates, the last dates and the ones in between. The sit downs, the takeaways and the “we’re closing now”s. Bold Street coffee was and is more than a coffee shop and it has been there for us for more than 7 years now but it’s now our turn to be there for it.
