It all boils down to a love of coffee. Our story began 9 years ago in Sumatra, where we met a wonderful group of farmers in a region that we continue to support today. It was this meeting that brought to our attention the plight of many smallholder farmers around the world. We decided that if we could do something for them, we should, and so on our return to the UK, Rounton Coffee Roasters was born.
Our mission is simple. We aim to source coffees that guarantee a fair cut for everyone at origin, and we make sure that their hard work comes through in the taste of the coffees that we roast. The beauty of this mission is that it becomes more important as we grow. We find ourselves here today, having formed relationships not just in Sumatra, but all over the world. We believe that quality and sustainability can (indeed, must), go hand in hand.
Along the way, we’ve met countless brilliant people closer to home, too. We wouldn’t be where we are today without you - the people who have decided that coffee sourced and brewed with care is the way to go. Likewise, we should thank the businesses that we work alongside, who share our values and want to see sustainably sourced, specialty coffee become the norm. With this community at our side, we can continue to chase this mission. We’re excited to see where it takes us.
