Being a city of study and culture, Coventry attracts a lot of coffee lovers.

The popularity of coffee among students is almost fanatical, in fact, after surveying 1,000 UK students, the National Union of Students found that cafés were the highest used campus facility, with half of all students surveyed claiming it was their most important facility.

With such a large student population, its easy to see how this could have impacted Coventry’s place in coffee culture.

Another factor contributing to the growth in popularity of coffee in Coventry is the rich culture available within the city. Coventry has been host to many large historical events during important eras, such as medieval times and WW2.

The city is also home to many famous playwrights and was the first to introduce the revolutionary Theatre in Education model to the world.

Cultured people bring with them great coffee, and the cultured people of Coventry know a great cup of coffee when they taste one. We’d love to help Coventry based coffee businesses to keep growing and expanding both in terms of business and beautiful tasting coffees.

We offer stock, services & supplies to UK coffee businesses.

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.
