Our hometown, Ammanford is a former bustling mining town that once produced the finest anthracite coal around. A staple resource during the industrial revolution, it was deemed Black Gold by many and it kept the country alive.Unfortunately, Ammanford colliery closed in 2003, which brought with it the depression and slow demise of the town. High unemployment levels have left virtually no prospects for the young school leavers of today, and have sent them elsewhere looking for work.Ammanford is a good town full of good people. That is why we decided to open our specialty coffee roastery here. With it, we aim to breathe life into our community, provide opportunities for employment, and ultimately bring back the Black Gold that the country was once so proud of.Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
