CLAYGATE Coffee Shop

Our Story

Our family-owned and run coffee roasting business, Capital Coffee, spans multiple generations and has a history going back almost 40 years.

By 2010 we thought it was high time we we put into practice everything we knew about successful coffee shops run by our customers and opened Caffè Capital in Claygate.

It’s given us a valuable insight and respect for the challenges faced by the independent coffee shop.

It’s not easy. It’s not exactly glamorous, but it’s a lot of fun.

The biggest lesson we’ve learned?

People come back for good coffee that’s well made.

No prizes for guessing whose coffee we use.

Coffee Menu

Our Claygate coffee blend has proved very popular, making reliably excellent Espresso and also amazing Flat Whites.

All of our coffee available in Claygate is hand-roasted in small batches by our master roaster.

    5 star review  Stopped here for a quick bite of lunch whilst hiking in Surrey. The staff were friendly, the coffee was delicious as were our Tuna Melt Paninis and the cakes we enjoyed as a treat to keep us going on our 20 km winter walk. It is a lovely place to relax and enjoy coffee inside the cafe but we also noticed several people enjoying the winter sunshine and sitting outside.

Did you know we roast our own coffee?

Our coffee roasting began in 1982 and has progressed from there, with our roasters based in Wimbledon and now our 2 shops.

We love what we do, and love sharing our delish coffee with you all.
