When we launched our crowdfunding campaign in summer 2015, our central promise was to build a state of the art coffee roastery to supply coffee to our locations around London. One year later, we delivered on that promise, opening our state of the art roastery in a converted warehouse in the heart of Shoreditch – alongside a barista training lab and space for the growing Grind HQ team.
Remarkably, the building has a long history with coffee - it was originally built for coffee storage in 1895.
From here, Head Roaster Howard works with his team, and Grind Head of Coffee Sam to taste, select, and roast the coffee before it’s packed and delivered to our locations around London each week. Howard and Sam work closely with a team of boutique importers, guaranteeing fair pay to farmers, as well as investing in projects to improve the communities that they rely so much on.
