Climpson & Sons - London

Getting roaster details...

Founded way back in 2005 Climpson & Sons have spearheaded the evolving London speciality coffee scene. Their exceptional range of espressos, blends and single origin beans reflect their unwavering commitment to exploring the possibilities of flavour. Considered one of the inaugural venues for London’s Coffee Revolution Climpson & Son’s beloved flagship café is constantly stocked with their popular roasts and situated in the heart of Hackney’s Broadway Market where the company also run a stall on market day.

Nobody could deny that these coffee pioneers take their work seriously; with coffee brewing methods continually evolving Climpson & Sons constantly seek the best flavour profiles and extraction techniques to understand how their roasts react in coffee-making equipment. They have a strong commitment to sustainability and ethical sourcing alongside selecting coffee for flavour and quality – you can therefore be assured the coffees Climpson roast and sell have not only have character but also a transparent story! They reward this quality by paying a higher price to the producer in order to facilitate strengthening relationships for the future.

History

Climpson & Sons Coffee Roasters was born out of Burgil Coffee, a market stall established in the early noughties by an inspired Englishman, Ian Burgess, who returned from 5 years of drinking amazing coffee in Australia determined to offer the same quality coffee in London.

After a few years on the market circuit, he set up shop in East London’s Broadway Market, recognizing the potential of the location and taking on the name of the old butchers’ shop for the business: Climpson & Sons. In 2005 he purchased his first coffee roaster (a 3kg Whitmee) and created a new business supplying the busy café with freshly roasted beans.

As London’s appreciation of a decently made coffee blossomed, café owners both established and new sought a better flavour from their espresso shots, pushing the limits of coffee making skills to new levels and the standard of espresso service with it. Climpson & Sons became known as one of the pioneers of this new “third wave” of coffee style, exploring new coffee origins and presenting consistent and intelligently crafted coffee for the retail and wholesale market.

In 2008 he upgraded to a 15kg Toper coffee roaster, and in 2011 added a 25kg Probat to help keep up with demand. By mid-2011, Climpson & Sons had added the words “Coffee Roasters” to their moniker, signifying their intent to focus on sourcing and roasting quality green beans.

The arrival of Danny Davies in 2010 brought many years of roasting and coffee business experience to the equation. Danny supplied Ian beans early on in the Burgil Coffee days and they maintained their friendship whilst Danny set-up shop in the vibrant Melbourne coffee scene. When Danny returned to London, it was a natural fit.

The café continues to supply amazing coffee to an ever-growing base of regulars, and the retail coffee bean business both in-store and online has soared to new heights.

The result of thousands of hours roasting and tasting new coffees is the current established range of blends and single estate coffees Climpson & Sons Coffee Roasters offers.

At the end of 2013, was the purchase of a Loring SmartRoaster. This roaster reduces greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption by up to 80%. The Loring recycles air inside the roaster, creating consistency year around and all leading to a cleaner cup offering.
