we supply the beans


We’ve been supplying to trade customers since the very beginning and we now roast, pack and dispatch our award winning coffee to customers across the home counties every day, from our base in Ware on the Herts/Essex border.

We personally deliver to local customers in our distinctive LULU vans and to our customers further afield by overnight courier. By delivering the beans ourselves, we get to speak to our customers regularly, getting valuable feedback on our products, helping out with any issues and identifying any training needs. We think this helps us to build great relationships with our customers, and ultimately helps you to sell more coffee.

Training is a huge part of our wholesale offer, and we have a purpose built training centre in our Ware roastery to ensure our trade customers are always getting the very best from our products. Training is always free and we encourage our customers to keep on top of their skills. All of our training is overseen by someone that’s learnt the ropes in our own stores, having made hundreds of thousands of drinks themselves. This approach means you will not only have a great technical understanding of what goes into making great coffee, but you’ll have plenty of real world practical knowledge too.

Whatever your business, and whether you sell a kilo or a tonne of coffee each week, we can help you to deliver brilliant, local coffee to your customers.
