Our Story : About Iron & Fire Coffee Roasters
SPILLING THE BEANS…
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!
What started as a passion soon became a mission. A mission to bring a more exciting and rewarding coffee experience to UK coffee drinkers whilst supporting the people at the heart of the industry. In 2012, Kev made it his goal to bring something new to the table for coffee lovers now with a full team of experts, Iron and Fire has over 20 perfectly roasted/crafted coffees, carefully sourced from across the globe.

COFFEE WITH A CONSCIENCE
Iron & Fire is a family business with a strong ethos central to all our business operations. From our sourcing to staffing to our high level of customer service, our social and environmental purpose is at the heart of everything we do.
Improving the quality of people’s lives is what matters to us. Whether it be helping a business owner succeed, improving the satisfaction of a customer or giving opportunities to young people in our industry.
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.
We are conscious of our environmental impact and work with environmentally conscious organisations where possible. We embrace compostable materials in our products such as our compostable coffee packaging, and takeaway cups.
