A traditional roastery, on a quest to find the perfect cup of coffee.
Monsoon Estates is a traditional craft coffee roastery based near Stratford upon Avon, hand-roasting small batches of coffee in a relentless quest to find the perfect cup of coffee. Chris, (or Mr Monsoon as he is affectionately known) and his wife Anne developed their love of good coffee whilst living in Europe and Australia. On their return to the UK they struggled to find decent speciality coffee and ended up roasting their own. In 2010 they invested in a Toper roaster from Turkey and started selling coffee at a local market in their spare time and Monsoon Estates Coffee was born.
In August 2012 they won their first 'Great Taste Award' for their Nicaraguan Maragogype coffee, winning a 2 Star Gold award. Commonly known as elephant beans because of their large size the coffee has a lovely rich and nutty taste. Medium roasted it is great for filter or cafetiere although some people like it as a sweeter, brighter espresso. Later that year they moved into a new roastery and they haven't looked back.
