With over 30 years specialist experience in the coffee business, we pride ourselves on understanding & exceeding our customers’ needs for the best coffee, machines and related products.
Starting as coffee & tea retailers in the 1980s with coffee roasted for us in nearby Richmond-upon-Thames by Francois, a dear friend and experienced coffee roaster, we soon opened a café on our own premises. It wasn’t long before other cafes and restaurants were asking us to use the same coffee, so we decided it was time to start roasting.
Our original, rather old roaster was sited in our Surbiton shop which meant that the beautiful smell of roasting coffee soon pulled in extra customers. Over the years we have changed roasters a few times and still hand-roast our coffees on a Samiac roaster. With demand increasing we have more recently installed a Neotec roaster alongside the Samiac drum roaster.
