As part of the coffee fuelled week #FeelTheBuzz – Back to the Daily Grind we’ve got some exciting new arrivals coming to our Richmond store from Climpson and Sons Coffee Roasters.  We’ve copied in their story below, but please head to their website to find out even more about their tasty coffees and ethos.  They’ve also got a pretty awesome blog about all things coffee here.

About Climpson and Sons Roasters:

Climpson & Sons Coffee Roasters was born out of Burgil Coffee, a market stall established in the early noughties by an inspired Englishman, Ian Burgess, who returned from 5 years of drinking amazing coffee in Australia determined to offer the same quality coffee in London.

After a few years on the market circuit, he set up shop in East London’s Broadway Market, recognizing the potential of the location and taking on the name of the old butchers’ shop for the business: Climpson & Sons. In 2005 he purchased his first coffee roaster (a 3kg Whitmee) and created a new business supplying the busy café with freshly roasted beans.

As London’s appreciation of a decently made coffee blossomed, café owners both established and new sought a better flavour from their espresso shots, pushing the limits of coffee making skills to new levels and the standard of espresso service with it. Climpson & Sons became known as one of the pioneers of this new “third wave” of coffee style, exploring new coffee origins and presenting consistent and intelligently crafted coffee for the retail and wholesale market.
