Copper Coffee Roasters
“When are we buying a coffee roaster?”
This was a fairly regular conversation that we had over our working careers, but it took us until 2020 to bring this plan into action.
We’d been working in the coffee industry for many years, and we finally decided to bite the bullet and fight for our dream.
You might think we’re crazy, and maybe we are, but we love great coffee and we want to share that with all of you!
We’re based at Bramley Hedge Farm in Surrey, where we’ve installed our brand-new Toper roaster in what was many years ago a former livestock barn.
It’s from here we’ll be roasting a range of speciality arabica coffee sourced from different countries around the world. We take great care in sourcing and selecting the best coffee beans we can find, and we hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we do!
We hope that we can help you learn more about the origins of coffee, and also about the many different ways of brewing and serving coffee. Our guides, blogs, and YouTube videos are full of information to help you improve in your coffee knowledge.
We have 3 main goals:
- Roast amazing coffee!
- Help you to make better coffee (to up your coffee game!) through our blogs, videos, tutorials, our accessories and, of course, our speciality coffees!
- Providing all that in the greenest way we possibly can.
As we continue to grow we will look at as many ways as we can to grow our portfolio of coffees and to minimise our environmental impact. Here's some of the areas we're focusing on:
Energy - We have partnered with Bulb Energy to power our roastery in Surrey. We specifically chose to have a fully-electric Toper Coffee Roaster, so our roasting process uses 100% renewable energy.
Packaging - We use biodegradable packaging for our coffees. We are currently using Omnidegradable® coffee bags from Tekpak. These bags break down into water, carbon dioxide, and biomass – all of which are beneficial to plant growth.
Coffee Grounds and Chaff - We have partnered with a local charity based in Weybridge (The Clubhouse Project) to deliver all of our grounds and chaff from the roasting process to their allotment.
