FROM BEAN TO BAG
We are proud to be the first coffee roastery in the UK where the beans are roasted and packaged by young people with learning disabilities. Our talented candidates are involved at each stage of the coffee production, from selecting and roasting the beans to carefully packaging them. Through this innovative project they grow as individuals, gaining essential work experience, learning important transferrable skills, and building supportive friendships.
