Where it all began
We are a group of coffee lovers that have the same aim – to connect the coffee roasters around the world to our partners in Brazil and Ethiopia.
Each of us brings unique, relevant experience to the team from various coffee professional fields: coffee exporting, global logistics, roasting, sales, quality control and many more. On top of that, we are just a really good bunch of people who gets along very well and want to be part of a valuable step in the green coffee supply chain.
We all really love to brew the coffees roasted by our friends, partners and customers. In the morning, you will find one of us geeking out on the new v60 or Chemex recipe in the coffee corner.
We work together with valued coffee warehouses in the UK and Europe. We allocate our stock strategically to deliver you coffees in the fastest, most efficient and most cost-effective way possible. We also now have two offices, the main office and laboratory in London and the second European office in Poland – if you are a European client you can now freely receive the samples from us.

Momo have been working in the coffee industry for the more than a decade now. He grew up in Paris then moved to London where he lived for the last 16 years.
From baby barista to head barista and quickly managing some of the most prestigious specialty coffee shop in London. His love for coffee and competition training took him to many places around the world. His trip to Bello horizonte, brazil for the World of coffee 2019 gave him the opportunity to visit his first coffee farm, which had a deep impact on him. Since then, he dedicated his effort to represent and distribute the quality and hard work of the farmers .
Now he oversees our client relationships in United kingdom and promotes specialty, traceable coffee beans for clients. He speak French, Arabic, Spanish as well as English.
I enjoy a cup of Brazil natural in the morning. Feels like a hot warming hug of honey and fruits in the morning, pair perfectly with my croissant.
But in the afternoon, I enjoy a a great cup of natural Ethiopia. As a hand brew and also as an espresso.
The complex, fruity yet clean coffee produced in the Guji and Sidamo region keep surprising me every year. I often buy the same beans from different roaster to see sample the full array of possibilities of the coffee.

Karolina started her coffee career as a barista in a small city in the northern region of Malta, when moving abroad from Poland 8 years ago, although her passion for the specialty coffee scene really kickstarted in London.
Since then, she’s worked in a couple of independent cafes and made her way to gain roasting experience by joining one of the well-known coffee roasteries in North London, where she quickly progressed up the ranks from production assistant to head roaster.
She loves tasting and is fascinated by multi-sensorial perception of flavour, be it coffee, food, beer or wine.
It depends on the day and what mood I’m in. My everyday go-to is a juicy cup of washed Ethiopia or Kenya. And when I’m feeling like I need a hug, then a good old cappuccino with alternative milk is the one.

Pablo has been working in coffee since he was 16, first as a barista before progressing to roaster, where he became obsessed with every aspect of the industry. From roast profiles to cupping data, water content to grind size distribution, Pablo finds coffee to be a deep rabbit hole full of things to discover. He is constantly learning and improving on his own knowledge to make everyone else’s coffee experience as good as it can be.
My favourite coffee would have to be a flat white in the morning, just to start the day. I also enjoy a clean, juicy Ethiopian natural or a washed Rwandan on filter all day long. Nothing crazy – just clean, fruity, and with sweet tropical juiciness.
