With a mixture of both sadness and optimism for the future, we regret to inform you that we will be permanently closing the Nicolson Street branch of our Machina Espresso cafes this Friday at 5.30pm.
Whilst this hasn't been an easy decision to make, it comes off the back of the rapid expansion of the Machina roastery and wholesale business, and the need to prioritise time and resource on it’s development. This also comes hand in hand with an exciting commercial opportunity to sell the Nicolson Street site to a new buyer.
It's at this point, we'd like to extend an enormous thank you to the incredible team (both past and present) whose tireless work have made Nicolson Street such a successful part of what we do here at Machina and such a wonderful space for people to come and hang out and drink great coffee.
We'd also like to thank all the people who have supported the cafe since it opened in August 2016 and been regulars fixtures at Nicolson Street. We appreciate you will be as sad to say goodbye as we are, however, our Brougham Place Cafe will remain open, business as usual. New season opening hours are Monday to Friday: 8.30am to 5.30pm and Saturdays & Sundays: 9.30am to 5.30pm, so do come and see us to get your regular Machina coffee fix!
It’s also worth saying that we plan to open more cafes in the future and will be sure to update you on any developments on this front via our blog, emailing list and social channels.
Thanks again for all your support,
The Machina Team
