The Department of Coffee and Social Affairs (DoCaSA) has revamped its food offer, with a new range of breakfast, salad and sandwiches made in-house and available across all its full coffee shops.

The new menu will be adapted and embellished according to available ingredients, with a focus on minimizing waste, with adaptions to the shops made to cater for new offer.

Breakfast options will include filled pastries, avocado on toast, muesli pots and granola bars; sandwiches include a gluten free quinoa burger, avocado chicken ciabatta, and hummus and aubergine vegan sandwich; and salads include roast salmon, roast turmeric cauliflower, and tofu.

Previously the 17-strong group, which was founded by financier Stefan Paul Allesch-Taylor, had a limited savoury food offer in a third of its stores, which came from third party suppliers, with the new range to be made at the Soho site, or regionally in store. 

Alongside the new food, the speciality coffee group has launched a new cold brew range, which it will sell bottled in small batches.

It is also relaunching its app, giving consumers a free coffee when they download it, more generous loyalty benefits of a free coffee in every eight bought, as well as various other giveaways.

Meanwhile MCA understands DoCaSA has no plans to rebrand the recently acquired, three-strong Tap Coffee, and would prefer to continue to operate it under its own brand.
