C1 Espresso is an iconic Christchurch cafe that's renowned for its pioneering espresso, big breakfasts and vibrant atmosphere.
We reopened in the old High Street Post Office after our original premises were destroyed in the Canterbury earthquakes.
C1 proudly sources and produces many of its own products in a green and sustainable way. We're a creative team, and you'll notice that we do things a bit differently. At the heart of our café is our passion for quality.
Order a set of sliders, delivered to your table through our pneumatic tubes. Try a Colombian cold drip or freshly squeezed orange juice on a hot summer's day, or grab a coffee made to perfection by one of our talented baristas.
Established 1996. Re-established 2012.
