We are Lisa and Andrea, longtime pals.
Lisa loves making good food, Andrea loves making good coffee and here's how our journey started:
Streatham, Spring 2019
Hey Lisa, I like what you cook.
Oh, thank you Andrea. I like the way you make my cappuccino.
Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
Yes, I really need a cappuccino. Can you make me one, please?
No, I mean... Yes... but What I meant was: why don't we open our own place?
OOOH, I see. It's a great idea! let's do that.
Great, can I have my cappuccino now?
Streatham, Winter 2019
That cappuccino was great and Green Cactus finally opens its doors on December 15th.
WHY GREEN CACTUS
Green Cactus is the name we chose and it is coming from an idea to be
GREEN: a completely eco-friendly shop (more info on our mission here)
and CACTUS because it's a resilient, low-impact, humble plant that inspires us in our fight against climate change.
