A WINCHESTER coffee roaster is opening a store in a former sofa shop in Winchester.

Branding for Kavi Coffee has gone up in Jewry Street, replacing the former Sofa Workshop.

According to the government website Companies House, the business is owned by Dhan Bahadur Tamang and Dhan Bahadur Sakri.

Mr Tamang is also the founder of DT Coffee Roastery, in Moorside Road, which is a specialist retailer supplying coffee to businesses in the UK and internationally. Mr Tamang has been contacted for comment.

The store is yet to be refurbished, with the front door still boarded up. The windows have been covered with the Kavi Coffee branding, with the tagline “A revolution is brewing”.

The unit was previously home to Sofa Workshop. Two years ago, items in the doorway of the empty unit were set alight sparking an arson investigation.
