Bringing a new format of coffee subscription, already popular in the US, to the UK for the first time, Beans Coffee Club hand-pick a selection of coffees for you to try from some of the UK’s best roasters, based on your brewing and taste preferences.
Since lockdown the business has seen their customer base double. In addition to an immediate uplift in customers, there was also a huge reaction from coffee roasters, who were fighting to replace their wholesale customers (cafe and pubs) with consumer orders.
Richard Jones, co-founder of Beans Coffee Club commented:”As people start becoming aware of all the roasters out there – they want to try them all, but they can get confused and overwhelmed buy all the different coffees on offer. We’re here to offer them a simple, easy and straightforward way to try them all and learn more about speciality coffee.“
Earlier this year, market research firm Kantar revealed that Brits have splashed out an additional £24m on tea and coffee and an extra £19m on biscuits in the past three months.
Unlike most existing coffee subscriptions that offer one roaster – Beans Coffee Club has partnered with 14 of the country’s best roasters, all with stories to tell – from Coaltown Roasters in Wales which was created to bring jobs back to an old mining town, through to New Ground – a social enterprise roasters in Oxford who use profits to fund training and guide ex-offenders into a long term, sustainable future.
Helping Brits try new coffees, make better coffee at home and understand your coffee preferences, the business is run by husband and wife Richard and Fiona Jones from Berkshire, who have worked in the coffee industry for over 10 years – running their own coffee shops and coffee roastery.
