Why: We chose this roaster due to their commitment to transparency. One of Craft House Coffee’s main goals is to make sure their customers are never left in the dark. They are all about involving you in understanding the culture which makes you love the product even more. Each and every coffee batch is tested using the power of technology to ensure the level on quality is uncompromised and consistency stays the same.
What's the story: It all began with an obsession to make the perfect brew. Spending many years working away in an old converted pig shed, Craft House Coffee’s founder, Tom, learnt more about the craft of roasting coffee though trial and error. After bringing the team together they were all curious to know what gives the coffee its characteristics? They concluded that it’s important to think, not just how, but what actually makes the perfect coffee. This obsession is what set them on the mission to better understand the coffee industry, Thus Craft House Coffee was born.
They source premium coffee from all around the world, either by direct trade or through trusted, dedicated origin partners with assurance that the farmers are well paid for the product they produce.
They believe in circularity and wasting less, donating their coffee chaff to local farmers.
Their packaging is 100% recyclable and they also support a number of local charities, giving back to their community.

On of Craft House’s most popular coffees; they purchase this direct from Melky Chavez on his family-run farm. This coffee is sweet and well balanced with tasting notes of berries, jam and molasses.
