Coffee & Tea

Housmans is proud to stock Zapatista coffee from our friends at Cafe Libertad. Cafe Libertad workers visit Mexico regularly to keep in direct contact with the coffee producers, collectives and insurgents. We have no doubts about the value this coffee plays in supporting the revolutionary struggle both in Mexico and worldwide.


We have a huge range of postcards, political and otherwise, for you to send to your friends, stick on your wall or start a collection. We stock vintage protest and peace movement postcards, as well as contemporary.



We always keep a large selection of badges, including some archival classics. 50p each, and metal pins for £2.50.
