Ask the Roaster - Dave from Rounton Coffee Roasters
How was the Roastery founded, what was the inspiration?
It was an abandoned building located close to where I was living at the time, I managed to get hold of the landlord and asked them for it.. fast forward today and we have been there for 5 years in total now.
What's your favourite part about working at the Roastery?
The Coffee, the countryside, and the people.
What's your proudest accomplishment?
We have won various awards for our business and I think our best accomplishment at the time, was best new business. Something that perhaps enabled us to think.. you know what.. we are doing something here that we enjoy and people like it.. it made us realise that we must have been doing something right to have been nominated and to have won as well!
What three words best describe your Roastery?
Rustic, Rurual and Chilly.
What’s your favourite place to enjoy a coffee, and what coffee would that be?
At home on a Sunday morning with a washed Central American using a stove top.
Finally, what Dog & Hat combination would you choose?
As long as he was with a cat in a bomber jacket, that is the only criteria.
