Like many great coffee shops, we work hard to deliver the best coffee and exceptional service to our customers – however at One Twelve Coffee, we do things a little differently. We’re a non-profit coffee shop who invests in people who are vulnerable or have experienced homelessness, helping them to get back into housing, work and society.

Through innovation, creativity and great coffee, we’re on a mission to put an end to homelessness in Wales. Ambitious, of course – but we have faith in our people and we’re not going to give up.

So, join us, sit back, relax, enjoy your coffee and know that you are making a positive difference to people’s lives. Thank you.

It starts with coffee

As part of the Pobl Group, we have worked tirelessly for decades to help people get back into housing and we’ve learned that everyone’s situation is unique. Despite our tenants being in a safe and secure home, we know the job doesn’t end there – Hence One Twelve Coffee.

Coaltown Coffee Roasters

The coffee in our cups is the current selection of seasonal coffees roasted weekly at Coaltown’s Ammanford Roastery, Wales.

Breaking the cycle of homelessness

Our staff that serve you are on our excellent barista training programme to gain skills to provide the perfect coffee. If our staff decide to move on from our coffee shop, they will have the experience to get a job in any city in the UK giving them a far better chance of avoiding homelessness in the future.

An exemplary place where they serve very tasty food. There is not a very big variety but what there is is very good, made with a lot of love and it is not expensive. It is run by volunteers and everything they earn goes to homeless people, which is another point in favor to visit them.

Each time our carers group have visited for a coffee /tea cake and chat we have had amazing service, super tasty food and delicious drinks but what makes it so special are the staff, who look after us all so well. Thank you all.
