This is the blog of Square Mile Coffee Roasters.  You can find information about new arrivals, new items in the webshop and events that we are running that are open to both the public and the industry.

Square Mile Coffee Roasters is a multi award winning coffee company founded by two people with a collective 17 years of experience in the coffee industry, spanning from barista work, machinery support and coffee training to import, cupping and roasting. We are James Hoffmann (World Barista Champion 2007) and Anette Moldvaer (World Coffee Cup Tasting Champion 2007).

We want to make London famous for good coffee. We source, buy, import, roast and deliver the best coffee we can get a hold of, and never stop asking ourselves how we can make it even better. We try to build a London coffee scene and do our best to contribute to the global scene. We are currently focused on wholesaling our coffee, and we’re now a team of twelve, with a wealth of experience and passion for what we do.

    A sample can definitely be spotted on some specific
    internet sites. If you want to just try a product,
    or even if you want to just save a few bucks when you buy join our group:.
    This job requires a great plan for sales promotion.

    Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to produce a great article… but
    what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and don’t seem to get anything done.

    obviously like our website but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts.

    Many of them arre rife with spelling issues and I to find iit very bothersome to ttell the reality however I will
    surely come again again.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
    this blog could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
    Terrific blog!

I can credit ‘Square Mile Coffee Roasters’, under the images (x2) used. Please let me know your thoughts. I can send you a preview of the page if you can send me an email address.

    It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly
    donate to this outstanding blog! I suppose for now
    i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
    I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this website
    with my Facebook group. Talk soon!
