 About:

Quarter Horse was founded in 2012 by Ameeta and Nathan Retzer.  Nathan is originally from Chicago and has over 12 years of experience in coffee.  He moved to the UK in 2012 and worked with some great coffee shops in London (Dose, Store Street Espresso) as well as working out of the Square Mile office for about 6 months.  His wife, Ameeta is a Brummie and after setting up Quarter Horse in 2012 they moved back to Birmingham to expand the cafe and start roasting.

Here at Quarter Horse we source high quality beans and focus on fresh and interesting lots.  We roast everything in house and in view of our customers.  We roast light to medium and our focus is bringing out the most flavour from each bean while maximising the balance in the cup.
