Coffee machine

Coffee experience

Visit the Coffee Experience and let our baristas help you choose the right coffee machine for you.

The journey will begin by taking you through different flavours of coffee and helping you to identify the right beans. The Coffee Experience zone will have three different types of coffee beans available to use in our demonstrations, a mild, medium and dark roast. The type of bean, origin, roast and grind will all affect the flavour of your finished cup.

Next the baristas will look at the amount of coffee you require, as well as the temperature and pressure as they all affect the final cup. It’s also importanct to use a grind that’s right for your machine. The baristas will show you how to pour your coffee, looking at the different amounts of espresso, hot water, milk or foam you need to create your perfect coffee.

Supporting our communities

Our aims

We're proud of the close links we forge between our Partners and local schools, charities and organisations. And wherever we do business, at home or abroad, we work with communities to make a difference. That's why:

  • Our Community Matters programme in our shops continues to support local charities and community groups.
  • We aim to give at least 1% of pre-tax profits to community initiatives.
  • We will continue to seek out projects that support the John Lewis Foundation at home and abroad.

If you'd like to nominate a good cause for Community Matters please complete the nomination form and take it to the Customer Services department.

The charities we've supported are:

  • Christmas Requests
  • Magic
  • The Trussell Trust
    John Lewis foundation

    Since the introduction of the law requiring retailers to charge for single-use carrier bags, our charity, the John Lewis Foundation, has been responsible for distributing the proceeds to UK charities. We’ve aimed to choose charities closely aligned with the principles of the Foundation, supporting activities that promote education and inclusion, and enable employment. We’re sharing the past year’s proceeds of over £155,000 between six charities.
