Spring Espresso destroyed

Look in Spring Espresso Lendal. I was looking forward to a coffee and a chat with the owner.

Something very very wrong, scruffy guys working there and on the shelves Small Batch. The owner would never stock Small Batch. I ask where he is. Person I am talking to barely understands, maybe Turkish.

I head to their other coffee shop, Spring Espress Fossgate. I suspect Spring Espresso had been sold. They confirm my worse fears, has been sold, sold to Coffee Smith, Vulture Capitalists buying up and destroying quality coffee shops.

Very depressing, two excellent coffee shops destroyed, all that more depressing that featured in Coffee Shop North.

But why, why buy and destroy two excellent coffee shops when there are mediocre coffee shops in York?
