Kiss the Hippo opens Covent Garden café

Kiss the Hippo, London’s first carbon-negative coffee company, has opened its seventh café in London’s Covent Garden.

Situated at 24 New Row, this latest addition to the Kiss the Hippo family has welcomed guests from 28 January, offering a coffee experience in one of London’s most vibrant neighbourhoods.

The expansion follows the success of its other locations in Richmond, Kings Cross, Shoreditch, Fitzrovia, and Chelsea. The Covent Garden café is poised to be a standout destination, showcasing the brand’s commitment to sustainability, exceptional coffee, and care in everything they do.

Guests can enjoy the house blend, known for its rich notes of chocolate, butterscotch, and berries, or explore a variety of single-origin coffees. The menu features espresso-based drinks, drip coffee, chai lattes, matcha lattes, hot chocolate, and teas, all complemented by a selection of pastries and sweet treats.

The new café boasts both indoor and outdoor seating, offering a welcoming space for guests to savour their coffee while soaking in the ambience of this bustling area.

Kiss the Hippo’s ethos centres around environmental responsibility. As a carbon-negative operation, it is dedicated to sustainable practices, from sourcing organic beans to its partnership with On A Mission, contributing to reforestation efforts worldwide.

For customers who make their coffee at home, the coffee brand has compostable pods, coffee bags, equipment, a subscription service and coffee workshops such as a Latte art course and home brewing course, also available.  

The creative director at Kiss the Hippo, Maya Zara, said of the opening, “Everything we do here revolves around care – from how we meticulously source and roast our beans, to the thoughtful design of our spaces. We’re beyond excited to bring Covent Garden the most delicious and sustainable coffee, handcrafted with passion and precision.”
