Iron & Fire was founded by Head Roaster Kevin Burrows in 2014 after returning from Melbourne Australia where amazing coffee is a way of life.
Kev spent years gaining valuable experience and learning the art of roasting in the very home of 3rd wave coffee. His desire to share his passion and knowledge and continue to develop his own unique approach to coffee roasting in the UK led to the organic growth of his business and the launch of Iron & Fire. With his partner Jo, now 5 years on Iron & Fire is a well-established coffee roasting business with a UK based speciality coffee roastery, coffee machine showroom and barista training centre open to the public.
Based in Shrewsbury they are one of the few roasters in the UK using convection roasting technology and uses cutting edge, bespoke coffee bean roasting equipment.
Their understanding of the scientific process behind roasting coffee beans is combined with the technical knowledge and sensory skills to create unique roast profiles to optimise flavours, bringing out the best in every bean.
They are environmentally conscious using compostable packaging and running a composting scheme . You can return your bags to them for composting and if you enjoy a spot of gardening you can collect a bag of ‘coffee chaff’ or ‘husks’ which can be reused as pet bedding or compost amongst other things!
Iron and Fire are a true independent family run business who are driven by creating an excellent coffee experience. Passionate and caring we are privileged to have them in our subscriptions.
