AWARD-WINNING COFFEE BEANS ONLINE
We actually started out in specialty coffee in the 1990’s after spending some time in Seattle, initially opening a coffee shop in Brighton’s South Lanes. In fact, we were called THE COFFEE COMPANY back then and after establishing something of a Brighton following things rapidly went south after a huge rent increase although that spurred us on to take over the Post Office in central Brighton and Redroaster Coffee Co was born. Roastery cafe’s were not common then, actually there weren’t any, and we began to roast the best coffee beans and sell them locally.
The cafe went from strength to strength and we built a wholesale coffee bean roastery close by to fulfil the orders from all of the Brighton cafes who had started to order our specialty coffee. We began selling coffee beans online in 2016 and we now offer our online coffee beans delivered locally by e-Cargo bikes and also delivered across the UK by Fedex and Royal Mail.
These days things are a little different. Our baristas and coffee roasters compete at international level, Redroaster Cafe was awarded Best Global Coffee House and lots of other lovely prizes but more importantly we have grown to become the UK’s most sustainable coffee business becoming a Certified B Corporation in 2023
We have now built our own schools back in Rwanda near the coffee growing areas for our farmers and their families (and medical centres/water projects/training/community centres and more), all paid for by the sales of our coffee beans online and the hard work of our whole team. And these days we are the largest employer of learning disabled young adults here in Brighton. Redroaster Coffee is twenty four years old already, let’s hope the next 24 are just as eventful.
