Since the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, we have seen a significant increase in the number of people ordering their coffee from us online. We are grateful for this and also, excited to see that the majority of our wholesale customers, who operate cafes and coffee shops are open again and adapting to the new rules.

We conscious of our responsibilities towards customers and our employees. We have reconfigured the roastery so that it is a 'COVID-19 Secure' workplace and where possible staff are carrying out some activities from home. The roastery remains closed to the general public at the moment but, you can buy take-away coffees and coffee beans from our new serving 'hatch'.
