Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

Status Details

  • The coffee machine appears to work but has some flaws
    • pressure appears inadequate - maybe descaling will help
    • the lid where water goes in has no handle
    • we don't have a tamper for pushing the coffee in right

Using the coffee machine

  • You need fine ground espresso coffee.
  • There are loads of coffee nerd sites. Read one of those about how to use a proper espresso machine.
  • Remember to clean up afterwards.
  • Remember to give offerings to the caffine Cthulhu otherwise he will decaffinate (or recaffinate depending on what you don't want) all your coffee.
