Ask the Roaster
With Brewer’s Cup championship baristas and licensed Q-graders - with impeccable taste buds and over 20 years experience in the industry, Gold Box is undoubtedly one of the UK's finest specialty coffee roasters. But the simple philosophy at the centre of our business is less swagger, more substance; Our coffee speaks for itself.
It’s the creativity, warmth, and mastery of the farmers we meet along the way that inspires our approach to specialty coffee. They’re the real heroes of our trade. From Ecuador to Bolivia: Kenya and Ethiopia, each new origin we visit teaches us something new. Reinvigorating our passion to create coffees as unforgettable as the locations they originate from.
It’s not simply the country of origin that factors into the flavour of your coffee. Everything from the altitude it’s grown at, to the soil and the techniques used to farm it can distinctly change the flavour. We only select ripe beans from altitudes where they grow at their finest to bring you incredible coffees with chocolate to fruity notes, and everything in between.
Roasting coffee is an art form. That's why we use watercolour paintings to represent the complex flavour profiles of each new specialty roast. But instead of colours, we use a palette of flavours; from brown sugar, jasmine and dragonfruit to blackberry, nutty caramel - and everything in between. With some of the most refined palates in the coffee industry, each one of our rare and distinctive roasts is a masterpiece.
