Coffee lovers in Nottingham can now taste some of the world’s best artisan beans after the country’s first online coffee boutique opens in the city.
Nottingham based Coffee Tasting Club claims to be the first coffee shop of its kind in the country. The new online business allows users to buy a wide variety of international coffee beans from some of the best roasters in the country.
Robert claims that the website allows fans of the beverage to collectively buy the best coffees from one source rather than dealing with individual roasters and their shipping costs.
“We realised there was nowhere that curated the best coffee in the UK where I could buy artisan coffee from multiple different roasters.” – Robert Deans, Founder of Coffee Tasting Club
The website supplies beans from around the world including Africa, Brazil and Vietnam. Robert says, “if I wanted to buy two different roasters’ coffees, I’d have to pay two lots of shipping…we realised there was nowhere that curated the best coffee in the UK where I could buy artisan coffee from multiple different roasters.”
Robert Deans believes that the coffee industry is growing in the United Kingdom.
One of the roasters featured on the Coffee Tasting Club website is 200 Degrees. Co-founder Tim Moss believes that the website will help expand the consumer base of the roasters it includes.
Tim thinks Coffee Tasting Club will benefit his roasting business.
Artisan coffee is becoming more popular each year with research showing that eighty percent of adults in the country drink coffee. This has resulted in there now being more than three hundred roasteries around the country.
Despite the difficulties businesses may have when starting up, Tim does have tips for anyone wanting to get involved in the coffee industry. He says, “I think as long as you have enough knowledge, passion and research…then you can persevere through.”
