The story behind every cup of our Coffee
From the Equatorial Bean Belt to the Staffordshire Canal Side!
The Coffee Farms
Our Coffee is made from a blend of beans grown on trees in Ethiopia, India, Costa Rica and Brazil. As soon as the coffee berries turn red they are hand picked and the green beans extracted, sun dried for 3 weeks and packaged in sacks to ship
to the Shipping Ports
The hessian sacks arrive at the docks (via horse, cart and truck!) and are loaded on to cargo ships for their 3-6 week journey to the UK. On arrival they are transported by road to Chartley Coffee’s roasting plant in Hixon, Staffordshire
to Chartley Coffee
The Chartley team await the weekly call from Wendy for a fresh batch of coffee, after which the magic begins! Head Coffee Roaster Ben, precision roasts then blends the beans and within 72 hours our Milano coffee is ready to go!
to Canalside Farm
The bags of rich Milano are hand delivered to our Farm by Chartley Coffee owner Vic or Martin (we are only 3 miles down the road!) and there they meet their destiny – a 45 second journey through our barista machine into your cup!
You can now sit back, relax and enjoy a Canalside Coffee! We hope that you find its extraordinary journey from the equatorial bean belt to your cup has all been worth it!
