Our Story

How We Got Started…

In Early 2002, myself and my wife Jane started selling paperback books on Bridgnorth Saturday Market.

We came across someone selling coffee beans, who we got to know, but who eventually left in 2004. By sheer coincidence, that same person was passing through the Concorde Centre in Sedgley, where we had a unit set up. His wife was expecting and he had given up the coffee trade.

He suggested that if we wanted a change to get in touch with him, so we talked it over and decided that, with book business being in decline, we would take it on. From then he supplied us with various coffee beans.

Where We Went From There…

We started by selling the coffee beans, in bean form or ground, at craft fairs around the country and began selling at Stourbridge Farmer’s Market. Halesowen, Moseley and Kings Heath Farmer’s Market followed, and these were followed by Kings Norton, the Jewellery Quarter and a local produce market at Bewdley.

In late 2006, Jane decided to return to full time work including Saturdays so I decided to carry on with the Saturday Farmer’s Markets. I came across a micro coffee roaster in Stafford who imported his coffee beans form mostly small independent coffee growers from across the world and with that, I made an order.

What We do...

Today my main roaster is a micro roastery in Shrewsbury.

From the roastery, I stock coffees from Brazil, Columbia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Nicaragua, (to name a few) blended coffees and fair trade coffees. The countries and coffees regularly change due to the coffees running out. This is due to different countries having harvest times at different times of the year.

As well as many traditional coffees a selection of flavoured coffee beans are stocked.

The teas I stock include traditional teas, black, green and white, from Ceylon, China, Formosa, India and Kenya and blended teas. Flavoured teas which have a base of either black or green tea to which such flavours as Wild Cherry and Peppermint are added. Fruit infusions of mixed dried red berries which has no tea content and tastes like Ribena and Herbal teas which are parts of the herb or plant and have many medicinal properties.
