Clifton Coffee Roasters

Clifton Coffee Roasters has been operating since 2001, and began its life servicing espresso machinery in the independent businesses of Bristol. As the reputation for service freewheeled, so too did the demand for the supply of coffee & equipment. Fast forward to 2013 and, confident in the growth and interest we were witnessing across the industry in improved coffee quality, we decided to invest in our own in-house production roastery to concentrate solely on sourcing, roasting and supplying the worlds finest specialty coffees. We embarked upon a journey as much for our own interest as for our customer to deliver a program of coffee quality & education that would help drive the industry forward. Today we find ourselves at the forefront of the UK Specialty Coffee scene, directly sourcing our coffee, winning competitions and supplying many of the leading retailers, independent specialty coffee shops to Michelin starred restaurants.
