It all started with our first business called Towability founded in 1983, Towability convert and build catering trailers. We kit many of these out with commercial coffee machines and that’s where the idea for Bella Barista started.
Bella barista was founded in 1998 with the thought that people must want high quality espresso machines for their homes. Bella Barista achieved success offering customers across the UK cafe quality coffee equipment for the home. Customers would visit the showroom and enjoy the buying experience learning about the machines and receive barista training. as time went on we realised we were sending people away with these coffee machines but no coffee!
From this we setup The Roastery in 2014 to offer customers pick of the crop Arabica Single Origin coffee freshly roasted. Since then, we have gone from strength to strength, supplying many local coffee shops, cafes and restaurants with our freshly roasted coffee as well as individuals all over the UK with our coffee subscription service and online shop.
After the Roastery has been running successfully for a few years now we decided it was time to go the next step which was becoming organic. Marcel the managing director of the company went out to visit our coffee farms and saw first hand the amount of chemicals they put on coffee and what it is like in these countries for farmers that have a middle man. As you can imagine marcel decided to make a change and make it fast. From then on we have made it our mission to be solely organic and deal with direct trade only ensuring our farmers are getting all the money they deserve for all their hard work, we wouldn’t have this amazing tasting coffee if it wasn’t for them.
We are now up to date and we have just taken our next step which is ensuring we are 100% toxic free, to make sure of this we get all of our coffees tested in a UK lab.
We pride ourselves on giving the members of public not only the best tasting coffee but the best coffee for your body, even now people are unaware of just how many toxins are in your daily coffee intake and how this can affect your body.
1% for the planet
After spending a lot of time perfecting our coffee we knew we could do more!
Putting everything aside the most important thing in this world we live in is our planet, without our planet there is nothing. We are all becoming more aware of the affects we as humans have caused our planet and it is hard to accept but it’s real and it’s happening so we need to make a change.
So we decided to become members of 1% for the planet, we now donate 1% of our revenue regardless of wether we make a profit or not to the planet, when you buy from us you are helping and right now everything little counts! We are sure this is just the start for The Roastery, along side this we are also in the process of changing all of our packaging to ensure it is the best we can use for the planet as we all the best for keeping our coffee fresh.
We are on a mission to spread the word and have fun while doing it. We cant wait to continue growing with you lovely bunch by our side.
