In our coffee, we only use 100% Arabica coffee beans. Our master roaster chooses the highest quality beans sourced from Ethiopia, India, Brazil, East Timor, Nicaragua, Honduras and Mexico.

Our robust selection process ensures that our coffee has body, aroma and a superb crema for fine blending and a balance on your palette.

Coffee Shop Franchises

As the British cafe culture grows last year the UK spent over £7.9bn in coffee shops.

The number of coffee shops grew to well past 20,000 in 2015, driven by a 12% increase in the number of branded coffee shop chains, according to the Project Cafe 2016 UK report from Allegra World Coffee Portal.

Costa, Starbucks and Caffè Nero, which when combined control more than half of the branded coffee shop market, led the coffee shop sector with a growth of 15% to an annual turnover of an amazing £3.3bn

With this sort of grow you can see why some many successful coffee businesses decided to franchise to enable them to compete with the major brands and take a slice of this ever growing market. Some of these coffee franchises are the traditional coffee shop like the above major brands but some have also been innovative and even made mobile coffee shop franchises, a coffee shop on wheels by converting vans to deliver to offices, industrial estates etc which both lower the businesses overheads and also brings coffee shops to more people that maybe would work too far away from a traditional coffee shop.
