Where, why & how?
Ideally, I would love to travel to each and every farm to select the coffee I sell myself, but the travelling would require time and resources I simply don’t have! When I am not roasting, I dedicate a lot of time to sourcing new coffees for the small but varied palette I like to offer. It is vitally important that I work with suppliers sympathetic to the Fair Trade ethos.
I roast on a Giesen 6kg gas roaster, and one thing I enjoy is the challenge of varying the roasting process to suit each coffee depending on its origin. I still roast the traditional way using my senses and you certainly have to be on your toes!
The roastery is everyone’s favourite spot, I don’t know if it’s the gentle tones of jazz, or the delicious and enticing aromas, or the opportunity of sipping a flat white or espresso but family and friends love congregating there. Along with our cats and dogs, you will frequently find our three chickens settled outside too!
our greener future
One of our main goals in the next coming years, is to focus on sustainability.
It is well know that coffees comes from exotic climates, from all around the world, this creates a carbon footprint.
To make a conscious change, and do our part as a business, we've decided to turn things around.
Currently the use of recycled plastic coffee bags, means we're stepping in the right direction not only as a business, but for you, the customer, as well.
Additionally, all our in person deliveries, in the local area, are being shifted to an electric powered vehicle only, which has been itself, carbon offset.
This is a small contribution from us, to be able to share a cleaner, safer future, together.
