About Us

How We Started

Having survived a career in IT for over 30 years, I have naturally had to drink a lot of coffee! The more coffee I drank, the more interested I became in the whole roasting process.

I have spent over 15 years studying and researching the art of coffee roasting. Buried deep in the cellar of my Yorkshire home, using green beans imported from all over the world, I have experimented with a multitude of different blends and roasts. Spurred on by family and friends I began to produce small batches to sell locally. I am passionate about roasting coffee that can be enjoyed whatever your taste.

Having outgrown the cellar, I built a roastery which enables me to produce the amounts of roasted coffee I need whilst still ensuring an artisanal, micro-coffee roasting & personal process.
