Peloton Espresso opened here in January 2017. Its owners Matt Rees and Dan Roiser come from Zappis bike and coffee shop in central Oxford. It retains many features from the previous occupants Quarterhorse and still sells Quarterhorse coffee, roasted in Birmingham.
2012 - 2016
Quarterhorse Coffee, owned by Nathan Retzer, was a speciality coffee shop. In the time it was here, many new cafes opened along Cowley road and it became one of a number of speciality or 'hipster' coffee shops with small tables, fast wifi and single-origin brews which have become such a common sight since 2012.
An interview with the folks who ran the coffee shop can be found by clicking this link.
