Wholesale Coffee Beans, Coffee Supplies & Barista Training in Nottingham

Nottingham truly is a modern city. Although it cherishes its cultural history, to walk down its streets is to walk through a city that feels European, exciting and welcoming. The home of Robin Hood and the lacemaking industry is now the home of a thriving student population and is one of fewer than 30 UNESCO Cities of Literature. The city surprises the newcomer with all the things which make the locals so proud of it: from culture, literature, art and history, to its cool, hip Hockley quarter or the market square where children splash in the fountains and where friends and families meet beside the famous carved lions.

The city of Nottingham has a thriving food and coffee culture and the Midlands’ second largest city has room and hunger for more. The shoppers, students, tourists and all those excited cricket fans fresh from national and international games at Trent Bridge who pour through the town are eager for a taste of premium, world class coffee.

Here at Iron & Fire we are ready to help you bring truly great coffee to Nottingham, from the key ingredient of the very best roasted coffee beans to selling or renting you the coffee machines which are the core of any coffee shop. We are here with the equipment, support and training which can make you a highly successful part of this highly successful city.
