The idea of Caffeine&Machine is plain simple, but brilliant. It’s a petrolhead coffee house, licensed bar and restaurant, boutique b&b, and a living art gallery, C&M is designed very simply as a place to go, a destination in and of itself if you appreciate moving things. With fabulous food, mind-blowing coffee and high-end rooms, C&M offers everything you expect from a modern member’s club - except you don’t have to be a member to enjoy it.
Set in twelve lush acres just outside the glorious city of Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwickshire England, C&M provides a convenient hub for any motorised scene, a hub whose spokes reach out into every subculture, group, club and clan you can imagine - from supercars to rat rods, vintage bikes to drift cars. Anything that starts with a key, they embrace.
C&M is founded to provide a space in which people can meet, talk, eat, drink and inspire - a local and national centre for a world-wide and smile-deep community. A quick coffee or lazy lunch, a weekend away or an evening drink - it’s all ready and waiting.
We had a talk with Phil McGovern, one of the two founders of Caffeine&Machine about their crazy journey.
