We can finally go public with the news we’ve been waiting to share with you. From Christmas Eve Peloton Espresso will be taking up residence at Quarter Horse coffee shop at 76 Cowley Road.
Quarter Horse have decided to close their Oxford shop so they can focus on their place in Birmingham and on their roasting and wholesale operation – so they were looking for a buyer for their Oxford store and we’ve reached a deal to take over from Christmas.
So from December 24th the store will cease to be Quarter Horse. New signage will go up and from early January (exact date to be confirmed) Peloton Espresso will open it’s doors for the first time.
All the things you love about Quarter Horse will stay the same – great coffee (we will continue to use Quarter Horse coffee) and friendly service. The layout will stay pretty much the same (with one or two tweaks) as will the set up and the machine etc.
But Dan Roiser (formerly of Zappi’s Bike Cafe) and Matt Rees will be bringing their passion for cycling culture and coffee culture together in what we hope will be an exciting blend.
As well as great coffee and a new expanded food selection (with some savoury light bites for lunchtime back on the menu), and a focus on retail coffee for home brewing, Peloton will stock a special selection of cycling journals and magazines, second hand cycling apparel, and will screen races throughout the pro season. All the spring classics will be shown live on screen as well as the Grand Tours later in the year.
But if cycling is not your thing Peloton will still be a great place to meet friends, work, and get one of the best cups of coffee in town.
We look forward to getting to know you in the New Year!
