Change Please are thrilled to be collaborating with singer-song writer Mark Owen to launch our exclusive coffee blend, Shine.

As a hugely successful solo artist and part of British pop royalty, Take That, Mark’s incredible career in music continues to go from strength to strength, earning numerous accolades and awards along the way.

Truly inspired by Change Pleases' work supporting people out of homelessness, a cause close to Mark's heart, together we've developed the perfect blend, Shine. Shine epitomises just that, an uplifting and empowering coffee with a dreamy blend of dark chocolate, hazelnut and caramel notes.

50% of the profits from Shine coffee will be donated to the Change Please Foundation, continuing our mission of helping people experiencing homelessness by training them to become baristas, supporting them with everything they need to turn their lives around - a living wage job, housing, therapy, bank account and onward employment opportunities. It all starts with a cup of coffee.

Wake up and Shine with Mark Owen.

Since Take That first burst onto the pop music scene in 1991, Take That have so far achieved 28 top-40 singles, nine UK number-one albums and received eight Brit Awards.

In 2012 they received an Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music. In 2024, Take That embark on their UK and Ireland stadium and arena tour, spanning 44 dates, before they head off to play across Europe and internationally later on in the year.

In Mark’s solo career he has released 5 studio albums, the most recent of which, Land of Dreams, made it to number 5 on the UK album charts. Marks passion for coffee and coffee culture started when he would regularly visit his favourite mobile coffee van at the train station on his travels and he has been hooked ever since.

Mark loves enjoying a delicious cup of coffee wherever he is, whether at home, sitting outside his favourite coffee shop in LA or whilst rehearsing and then going out across the country on tour.

Mark discovered Change Please and was truly inspired to work with us and create his own coffee blend to allow him to enjoy his favourite blend wherever in the world he might be. At the same time, by collaborating with a social enterprise, it also contributes towards another of Mark’s passions, tackling homelessness and supporting people who really need it.

Mark came to Change Please to select the beans to create the flavour profile he was looking for – something sweet and indulgent to keep his sweet tooth happy. And the result is Shine!


When Mark is on the road, his preferred method for getting a pre-show caffeine boost is the classic Cafetiere brew! Here is how to make coffee the Mark Way...

To make two 250ml cups of coffee, weigh 30g of your Shine coffee and add to your Cafetiere.

🫗 Pour 500ml of just-off boiling water in a circular motion into the Cafetiere, ensuring all the grounds are covered.

⏲️ Leave to brew for 3-5 minutes depending on how strong you like your coffee. 4 minutes is perfect and enough time to listen to Shine!

 🥄 Scoop off any excess foam from the top.

👇 Plunge just under the surface of the water

☕ Pour into your favourite mug and enjoy!
