This photograph is of my great grand farther, Ben Addis (Far Left) in 1956. He worked in the collieries his entire working life from the edge of 14. He was a craftsman, an artist of his trade. his image is from a golden ear in our a history something that will come around again, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
We are a specialty coffee roastery and as such we focus on sustainable and transparent trade with small farms from across the coffee belt and aim to uphold quality at every stage of our production. We are driven by remaining ethical, and by our desire to roast delicious coffee that's full of personality.
Unlocking the unique flavours within the world's finest coffee beans begins in the roaster. Hand-roasted in small batches, our Roastmaster is able to judge the timing and temperature to perfection, delicately drawing out the complex flavour notes from raw green beans. We carefully study how the beans turn from green through to straw yellow and then finally to rich, sumputuous brown, ready to be brewed into perfect espresso.
Our Roastmaster has been trained within the guidelines set out in the Speciality Coffee Association of Europe's (SCAE) education programme. We roast our beans every Monday and Tuesday to guarantee that you are drinking the freshest coffee around.
