Caravan Speciality Coffee Roasters

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.

The coffee industry is in crisis. Informed purchases are needed

Issue: Coffee prices are in crisis, which threatens the very existence of many coffee producers, and so, the future of coffee globally.For more: GUSTATORY on Sky News Radio (Interview)Our Answer: Informed purchasing decisions are advised, from the independent coffee roasters featured here on the GUSTATORY marketplace. Through direct-to-source relationships, roasters are able to protect their supply chains from the effects of price volatility as they form special relationships with producers. These relationships also protect producers as roasters often commit to fixed term and fixed price contracts, which give producers certainty. This certainty is what producers need in order to not only survive but thrive, committing to sustainable practices and addressing other global problems that are threatening the industry such as climate change.

Make their commitment your commitment. Support independent coffee roasters and you’ll be making a difference before you even have your first cup of coffee.
