We get loads of technical support, equipment and barista training and the coffee is consistently excellent. Highly recommended to any establishments out there looking for a new coffee supplier.”
“The coffee is going down so well, everybody loves it! They’ve said how smooth it is and the best coffee they’ve ever tasted. Thank you so much!”
“Definitely one of the most experienced roasters we have had the pleasure to try the Petroncini with. Knowing it now has your stamp of approval will give us even greater confidence for future demonstrations.”
“Honestly, the coffee is one of the best on the market. The passion shines through every bean. Think dark chocolate, caramel & strong coffee. Works superb in a moka. Top quality stuff!”
“I was over in the UK from Cairns, Australia, for 3 weeks and couldn’t cope 3 weeks without my coffee. I found Iron & Fire on Google so called them. They are so accommodating and I had my coffee within 2 days from order which I was very impressed with! Kev knew his stuff and quickly recommended a coffee to fulfil my tastes. The coffee is amazing in both a percolator and espresso machine. I loved it that much I ordered another KG to take back to Cairns and I am currently drinking a beautiful coffee now. The coffee isn’t just great but the staff here are so knowledgeable and efficient. Couldn’t recommend enough. Thanks guys!”
“At my age I thought I knew what good coffee was but then I happened to meet Joanna and Kevin. We got chatting about their coffee and they gave me some simple tips on how to brew a good cup and so I decided to try a one of their bags – now I can’t get enough of the stuff!!
I am now on a monthly subscription so I get to try interesting varieties every month and honestly… EVERY one has been delicious! Iron & Fire coffee is genuinely lovely stuff – and definitely way better than any high-street brand I’ve come across! Love it!”
“Our Coffee Stop is supplied by Iron & Fire’s coffee and we are so pleased we found them! The coffee is consistently delicious, we are currently addicted to Colombian Jazz which we would highly recommend! The perfect way to start the day. Not only are we really pleased with the coffee but we have had an excellent experience working with Iron and Fire, with Barista training and help when we really needed it. If you are a company looking for your new supplier, these are the brand you need! Ethical, delicious and friendly!”
“Firstly, I would like to say a massive thank you for everything you and Kev have done so far, you’ve been great! Last Friday really opened up my mind and gave me some really good ideas. Kev is clearly very passionate about what he does and that really came across and it was contagious! I feel quite comfortable in moving forward with your company and I know I will be in safe hands so that’s half the battle!”
“We would definitely recommend Iron & Fire. Really friendly, reliable service from a company that cares about what they have on offer and how it is being sold. Kev has been on hand with any problems, giving training to the whole team, servicing our machine, and even popping in last minute when we haven’t ordered enough coffee!”

SETTING UP A COFFEE SHOP
We work with a range of businesses from large established hotels, garden centres and cafes, through to small, independent coffee shops. We also work with many start up businesses and are always happy to offer advice and support. We find we get asked the same sort of questions again and again and so we have put together a few considerations into various blogs on this website about the many elements of setting up a cafe.
From our perspective, whether you business is new or established, great coffee always makes good sense. The market has changed and right now, the single most important factor and one that will make the most difference on its own, it’s your coffee offering.
