How it all started
The founder, Olivia Nottin, is a nutritional therapist passionate about food. It was while she was helping her clients on their journey towards healthier eating habits, that she noticed their overconsumption of coffee and sugar-loaded lattes were particularly detrimental to their overall goal. Olivia recognised many couldn’t cut down on their habitual lattes and after discovering matcha, she felt it was the perfect alternative, with a very delicate taste, texture and many health benefits. Olivia is matcha obsessed and having searched high and low’s across London, she realised there was a gap in the market. It was this which provided the inspiration behind Matcha and Beyond and her desire to bring it to a wider and more curious audience.
Between 2017 and 2018 she travelled to the US and Japan to gather some inspiration in order to source the perfect matcha and open a matcha café in London and that’s how MATCHA AND BEYOND was born.
