Our story

The Coffee Roasters is all about sharing a passion and values.  Supporting independent roasters in the UK who in turn buy coffee beans from farmers who care for their workers and their environment.  The ultimate goal, however, is quite simply a fine cup of coffee.

The Coffee Roasters was founded by Lloyd Burgess and Jayne Pye at the end of 2013. Their aim is to make it easier to find and buy a wide variety of freshly roasted coffee from UK artisan roasters.

Originally from Auckland, New Zealand, Lloyd has always been interested in quality coffee. A visit to a friends' award winning coffee roasting business - Veni Coffee - sparked Lloyd's fascination with roasting.

Upon returning to the UK, it was a revelation to discover the diverse and growing number of independent artisan roasters. 

Inspired by the wonderful Colonna & Small's speciality coffee house in Bath and the ever increasing presence of independent coffee roasters, Lloyd now maintains a BIG List of UK Coffee Roasters on this site.

We hope you find the site informative and useful, and if you would like to get in contact, we would love to hear from you.
