Coffee roasting requires more than just a love of coffee. It is the science of roasting that appeals to me too. The challenge of evaluating different coffees in the roasting and cupping process is what gets me up every morning.
— Vinny De Oliveira, Roastmaster

When you’re as passionate about coffee as we are, it’s important to make sure that every bean is roasted to perfection. We accept only the best – and so should you! We roast our beans in small batches, by hand, which allows for each bean to reach its perfect shade and flavour. We work hard to maintain the artisanal craft of roasting the perfect coffee beans.

What exactly is speciality coffee? Speciality coffee beans are grown in special and ideal climates and are distinctive because of their full cup taste.

As well as practising the best roasting techniques, it is essential that we feel good about the beans we source. We’re exceptionally proud of our beans – and not just because of their outstanding flavours. Here at Chapter Coffee, the livelihoods of our farmers and the quality of the beans we roast are at the heart of our sourcing policy. To us, it’s about more than simply paying a fair price – every farm, estate and cooperative that we work with around the world carries the same high-quality standards that we do. We’re proud that our beans are recognised by Fairtrade, the Rainforest Alliance and Soil Association Organic

When we’re not roasting, we’re drinking coffee, and when we’re not drinking coffee, we’re talking about coffee. Whether we are discussing the perfect growing conditions, or debating which type of bean belongs in an espresso or a milk based coffee – there’s nothing we’d rather be doing. As part of efforts to champion fantastic coffee, Chapter Coffee is part of the Speciality Coffee Association, which connects us with thousands of other like-minded speciality coffee enthusiasts within the industry.  

So, if you’re looking for coffee with exceptional taste, warmth and aroma, you’re in the right place. Let us be part of your story.
