We roast all of our coffee using our beautifully restored vintage Probat roasters:Dorothy and Penny.WE HAVE BEEN ROASTING COFFEE IN OUR FACTORY NESTLED IN THE DEVON COUNTRYSIDE SINCE 2009.We have spent a lot of time carefully adding simple updates to Dorothy’s hardware allowing us to make the most of the reliability of a classic coffee roaster while giving us more control over the roast than would have been possible when she was the first cast. This allows us to accurately and consistently roast our speciality grade coffee, to bring out those unique flavours that we are known for.While we use Dorothy for the majority of our roasting, we recently acquired a smaller vintage roaster - Penny, which we use mainly for small lot premium coffees and custom roasts.
Meet Dorothy and Penny.
We don’t offer sustainability as an extra or selling point, we think that it is just the way that things should be done to ensure the future of the coffee industry, and to protect the planet. We source our coffees from suppliers who are committed to paying the farmers a fair price for the quality of their coffee. The producers receive higher than fairtrade prices so they can continue growing great quality coffee using environmentally friendly techniques while paying their workers a fair living wage.
