Since 1864, we’ve been supplying UK businesses with the freshest, tastiest coffee known to beankind. Along the way, we've led the UK's espresso revolution - we even introduced the world's first triple-certified espresso back in 2004. But our passion for coffee innovation didn’t stop there.
From sustainably sourcing only the freshest, new season harvests from around the world, to supplying industry leading coffee machinery & SCA accredited barista training - we understand that perfecting each part of the bean-to-cup journey is crucial in helping our customers deliver the best cups of coffee possible to their patrons.
What we discover in our Coffee Lab really does make a huge difference to the way we operate. Through our work with local universities (and students from around the world), we've carried out dozens of studies on the science of flavour, freshness and much more.
From our crazily accurate roast temperature and clever nitrogen-filled packs to our intricate cryogenic grinding techniques - we go a long way to help you serve the freshest, tastiest coffee around!
Sourcing the tastiest green coffee takes a lot of hard work and dedication. We have our own in-house green coffee buyers. Following four key principles: trading relationships, certifications, direct trade and new crop flavour, they are able to guarantee the quality of the beans.
