Changing Specialty Coffee in London

High volume expansion alone doesn’t drive High Grade to invest in it’s roasting program. At its core, providing hospitality and a place for people to come together drives the ethos of the business.
"When we serve someone a cup of coffee we are genuinely very proud of, and they go out of their way to come back and tell us, "That was one of the best coffees I've ever had." ‑ "It's super meaningful. Knowing that we have shown someone this is what coffee could be. That’s worth it to me, that’s what it’s all about."
Thanks to Bellwether, the microroastery movement has a new home in London, where every business can serve better, fresher, more sustainable coffee in any location.
