Quarter Horse Speciality Coffee Roasters

Located on Bristol Street in the Southside area of Birmingham, Quarter Horse opened their roastery and cafe in Februrary 2015. Roasting their own beans is an exciting venture that allows them to source high quality green beans from around the world, and freshly roast them for their customers. With the roaster in sight from the cafe, you are able to go by and see how the roasting process works, aiming to roast some of the best coffee in the UK.

Quarter Horse select beans by quality and seasonality, then test-roast them in small batches. Their team then evaluates them by flavour and roast their favourites of these for use in their shops and for their customers. Quarter Horse are one of the only coffee roasters in the country to roast in-house and within full view of their cafe.

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.
