Our Story : About Iron & Fire Coffee Roasters


Kev’s lifelong passion with coffee started as a young boy, regularly dragging his Nan into the only local coffee merchant just so he could smell the aroma. That’s where the story began….

His love of coffee only grew and later, after 10 years in Melbourne where amazing coffee is a way of life, he took his passion, combined it with his science and engineering background and came up with a unique concept – a bespoke coffee roasting process specifically designed to bring out the very best in every bean.

Turns out he wasn’t the only one who thought this was a great idea and before long, Kev’s perfectly crafted coffees went from his Ironbridge workshop and the coffee loving locals, to being enjoyed in homes and businesses across the UK, Europe and across the world!

Many of our coffees are Rainforest Alliance and Organically certified. Those that aren’t have been selected from independent farms so we can support the growers directly. The proceeds from some of our coffees go towards some fantastic community projects in the growing areas of Africa, Central and southern America.
