A London based roaster, producing well-mannered speciality coffee.
The Gentlemen Baristas are based in central London and they are owned by Edward Parkes and Henry Ayers. Having met at the London Coffee Festival in 2011 they opened their first coffee shop three years later. Their coffee range is named after classical British hats including Top Hat, Pith Helmet and Deerstalker, they strive to evoke the best of a period gone by
They source the majority of their green beans direct from source, working with either small holders or directly with the farmers and their families. Cutting out the middle man they can directly benefit the communities and in turn the process at source. Sustainability is fundamental as well as environmental factors, they are at the heart of all that they do.
