About Us

We are an award winning coffee roastery founded in 2015 and based in Brixton London. Here we roast some of the world’s highest quality coffees using precise roasting methods and offer them via our webshop or via our wholesale partners in some of the best cafes and restaurants here in the UK and around the world. 

How did it all begin?

In the summer of 2014 we began by calling together cafes and restaurants in the UK to share their experiences and help define what we could do as coffee roasters to genuinely be different.

Six months of listening and meticulous planning later we emerged with our vision to source and roast the highest quality specialty coffees in the world while also being a coffee roastery that would, first and foremost, maintain a customer perspective and be dynamic, innovative and responsive in the way it works with its wholesale partners. We would go on together to create our packaging, coffee illustrations, our coffee catalogue, insight reports and much more through collaborative working and with the shared aim of creating innovative solutions to industry challenges.

In April 2015 we officially launched as sponsors of the inaugural Coffee Masters at London Coffee Festival and there began our journey.

We believe in:  

  • Quality both in terms of a consistently excellent product and also as a mechanism whereby producing communities can be paid more for their work

  • The power in community and that, whether web customer, wholesale partner or staff, each individual’s experiences are unique and their input grows the whole.

  • Innovation is key for specialty independent coffee to grow in the UK and should be shared openly. 

  • Ethical trade is a responsibility of all participants in the coffee supply chain and, as roasters, we have an obligation to embrace our part by actively contributing to origin initiatives and by sourcing, trading and promoting coffees which we can be certain are perpetuating sustainable livelihoods for farmers.
