Volcano Coffee Works was founded by Kurt Stewart in 2010. Inspired by over 20 years roasting experience in New Zealand, he began Volcano as an adventure introducing the British public to the infinite variety of taste within the world of coffee. Today we are the combination of over 30 people’s shared passion for producing outstanding coffee and utilising coffee as a means of re-organising fairer opportunity whether it's to the supplier, customer or staff.
We believe in environmentally sustainable and ethically traded coffee, and work with partners all over the world who actively engage community-based improvements. Our ethical trading principles ensure that our successes benefit the entire supply chain and beyond, from direct initiatives at origin to local communities here in the UK.
High quality coffee roasted fresh in London
We source only the highest quality specialty arabica beans from around the globe and roast them in small batches here in Brixton London. Our expert staff hand-roast on Loring Smart Roasters which not only ensure the highest level of technical precision but create up to 80% less emissions than other commercial coffee roasters.
Served in the best cafes & restaurants
We proudly supply coffee to some of the best cafes and restaurants in the country; from premier on-trade institutions such as The River Cafe and Claridge's to the best independent cafes across the UK. Our coffee range delivers this premium on-trade experience via formats that circumvent the need for professional expertise and can be enjoyed in the home. This is really coffee made and drunk by the best experts in the UK.
Everyone deserves a fair shot
Opportunity in this world, and in particular the coffee industry, is too often afforded to the few and denied the many. We believe everyone deserves a fair shot, refusing to overlook the value in each individual and their ability to enact positive change. We source all of our coffees directly from producers at an average price of over 100% above the fair trade premium. In addition, we invest in sustainable outcomes either via positive impact initiatives in all of the communities where we operate or via our participation in global sustainability movements such as our certification as both B Corp and a Carbon Neutral business.
