Caravan Coffee Roasters is based at Lamb Works, an 8,500 square foot redeveloped Victorian warehouse on North Road in Islington, London. The site houses the eco-friendly Loring Smart Roaster, quality control lab, coffee school, bakery, drinks lab, events space and head offices for both the restaurant and roastery businesses.
At Caravan Coffee Roasters they believe in challenging and raising the standards and expectations of the UK specialty coffee scene. Their aim is to ultimately provide the consumer with a superior product in their cup, sourcing the world’s best beans and roasting them to specific and consistent profiles so to ensure each coffee’s individual characteristics are fully nurtured.
The roaster sources green coffee from single farms and specialty estates as far as Ethiopia, Colombia and Rwanda (to name just a few) where the focus is quality, provenance, sustainability, freshness and fair relationships with the growers. When they find a coffee that they love, they then take the time to enhance the roast profile to bring out the best flavour characteristics.
