Wholesale Coffee Beans, Coffee Supplies & Barista Training in Birmingham, West Midlands

Birmingham is no second city, or the second anything. It is modern, vibrant, and like us, was cast in iron and fire.

The ‘City of a Thousand Trades’ was born in the heat of the Industrial Revolution. That drive continues today as the city’s reputation has spread across the world and now forests of cranes stripe the sky like industrial chimneys did a century ago. Businesses start, thrive and are cherished here.

An international reputation brings an international population and industrial melting pots have become a social melting pot. On any street you will hear half a dozen languages. In shops, galleries, cafes and bars people meet and talk and eat and drink.

Coffee culture is at its soul multicultural. In coffee shops heat and pressure bring together beans and people from across the world and the thriving coffee scene is one which we can help you to join and become a part of the excitement and success of a truly great city.

We offer stock, services & supplies to UK coffee businesses. Overall, the business of coffee in Birmingham is booming, and we’d love to help Birmingham coffee businesses to make the most of this trend.

Our range of premium quality wholesale coffee beans have proven to go down a storm with customers on both a local scale and nationwide. Our beans can be purchased as whole coffee beans, green coffee beans or freshly packaged to your desired grind.

We also offer a very affordable rental service for high-quality machines that otherwise
may be out of your price-range. The great advantage of renting one of these machines is that they can very quickly and easily pay for themselves, allowing any profits they make you to be reinvested into the business.
