Founded in Stockholm in 2017 Muttley & Jack’s is a prize winning micro-roastery delivering hand-roasted speciality grade coffee to homes and cafes throughout Europe. We aim to live the values of quality, transparency and approachability in all that we do.
Whenever possible we spend time at origin, meeting with the people who grow and process our coffees. Our input helps producers to improve quality year after year and allows farmers to receive higher prices for their harvest. We do all we can to ensure that, from seed to cup, the coffee you enjoy has a positive impact on the farmer, the environment and you.
With an approach to roasting that is a blend of art and science, we take care to get to intimately know each lot of coffee that passes through our roastery, experimenting with different roast profiles until we reach the magic formula. Our aim with roasting is always to allow the unique characteristics of the individual coffees shine through and for you to enjoy the most delicious cup possible.
Jack spent 15 years working with humanitarian and environmental not-for profit organisations before devoting himself full-time to his passion for speciality coffee. The values that led him to work in the nonprofit world are the very same values that drew him to the speciality coffee business:
“We all want a sustainable planet where people live in dignity and in harmony with nature. When done correctly coffee can be so much more than a delicious drink - it’s a way to have a positive uplifting effect on people’s lives at every step along the chain.”
Jack began coffee roasting some years back while spending time on a Rwandan coffee farm. Since then he has sought to understand more about the complex, wonderful alchemy that goes into creating a perfectly roasted bean. He has spent time learning from great roasters in Dublin and Berlin and won the silver medal in the Swedish Coffee Roasting Championships in 2017.
Aside from coffee Jack’s great love is a Boston Terrier named Muttley. This four-legged bundle of energy serves as a constant reminder that life is there to be enjoyed, running about in the forest, delighting in the company of friends or curled up in front of a cosy fire. And that life is too short to drink bad coffee
