"A fresh start sounds just like what New Zealand and Christchurch, especially, needs after the Canterbury earthquakes that occurred in 2011. Black and White Coffee Cartel wants to bring just that to our locals, initiating a new franchise of coffee shops that are determined to introduce their unique and funky vibe to the streets of Canterbury. This specific cafe is located in Bush Inn, a rather unique and small shopping centre in Upper Riccarton - they even provide free parking which is an added bonus!Keeping the idea of ‘the future’ in mind Bink Bowler - the founder of Black and White Coffee Cartel - is embarking on a warm atmosphere filled with the aroma of freshly ground coffee and relaxation no matter the person. Here at the Cartel you can expect delicious food, drinks and incredibly welcoming and personal service from our staff.But wait, just before you thought it couldn’t get any better, there’s a new spin to introduce - During the first year the team decided to liven things up by introducing New Zealand’s first ‘micro-roasting coffee franchise,’ meaning you can watch as your very own coffee gets roasted there on site! Along with this individuality, Black and White Coffee Cartel has loud music to enjoy, mismatching furniture from multiple eras, art coating the walls and relatable baristas that are just like you and me.And watch out, they even cater to all gluten and dairy-free lovers out there!So whether it’s in a suit, flip flops or work boots, come along to a Black and White Coffee Cartel near you - Wherever the location, you’re very welcome here!"

"Here at the Black and White Coffee Cartel, we are determined to make all of our customers feel welcome and have a positive experience at any location. We acknowledge that our disabled customers potentially face some barriers that we could help them overcome. Your server will have specific training around those barriers and what they can do to proactively make a difference.We can also understand that having a disability often means extra living expenses, and not being to flash with cash. For that reason, we’re giving you 10% off hot drinks. How sweet is that!"
