About us

Bean Smitten was founded in June 2014 by Darren Tickner, a former finance executive who became fascinated by the world of speciality coffee.


We are located just south of Tunbridge Wells on the Kent/East Sussex border. We roast only premium (speciality grade) coffee. Always fully traceable and fairly traded.


At the roastery we hand-roast batches no more than 6kg at a time on our Giesen W6A roaster. We cup (taste) the coffee each time we roast and play with the roast profile until we are satisfied we have achieved the optimum balance of taste and mouthfeel.


We roast to order, so our product is always fresh. Well sell our coffee in 250g and 1kg bags. Whole bean or ground to your specification.
