What’s their secret? “There is no real secret aside from concentrating on the basics! Not concerned with trends, only what tastes good. Being nice to our guests and serving exceptional coffee is the foundation of who we are and will continue to be. The coffee which we supply to our friends at HomeWork is our ever-popular house blend roasted in collaboration with Origin Coffee Roasters, a seasonal offering which is a bit of an all-rounder, working great as both a black coffee and with milk.”
Origin Coffee Roasters are a leading speciality coffee roaster in the UK obsessing over every detail. Origin have six coffee shops, and SCA training facilities in London and Cornwall.
They source over 90% of their coffee through direct trade. You can trace the journey in every cup. Direct trade means they support their farm and mill partners by paying over and above Fairtrade prices, without exception. They travel to the farms and listen to the workers and their families. Being on the ground and seeing everything with our own eyes shows them how committed their partners are to environmentally and socially sustainable practices. The stories behind each cup stretch across continents and through generations of expertise; they thrive on sharing those stories with their customers, baristas and drinkers – who naturally expect full traceability.
Origin is shaped by the desire to empower and enthuse people at every stage of the coffee journey. As part of this their education team teach the Speciality Coffee Association’s Coffee Skills Program and work with some of the UKs most awarded baristas, including the 2018 & 2019 World Coffee in Good Spirits champion and the 2017 & 2018 UK Cup Tasters champion. For them, it’s all about precision and craft throughout the supply chain.visit them!
