We are Smokey Barn Coffee Roasters! - A micro roastery run by sisters Sophie & Megan Roberts; founded on family values of Creativity, Diversity and Sustainability.
As bigger women in the industry, we stand for inclusivity when it comes to coffee.
It can be a challenge to reflect our values, concerns and personalities into the Smokey Barn brand… the world is moving fast, so we've decided to catch up, f*&K it! And give you 100% us.
Our small batch roasterie and coffee shop operates out of a converted barn on King Street, Norwich; where we always roast fresh to order and stock a hand picked selection of Rainforest Alliance & Organic coffee.
We're very proud to be located in such a historic part of our beautiful city! Our little barn is part of an old trading wharf dating back to the 13th century; named ABC Wharf after the ‘ABC Steam Shipping Co’ that used the area as their dock in 1895. The building has seen many owners come and go over the years but has now been transformed into our cozy coffee hub.
Smokey Barn focuses on understanding the issues that surround our industry & highlighting them where we can. Dedicated and talented farmers work year round to produce the products we drink in our coffee shop; we strive to give their work a platform within our community. Never forgetting where it all begins. Knowing where our produce comes from is vitally
important for the future of speciality coffee production. From sustainability and deforestation, to the coffee price crisis, it's so important for us to make sure we're up front and transparent in every area of the process.
Climate change and global warming are the biggest threat to the future of our planet, and this is clear when you look at the coffee industry and its effect on farming. Sustainability is at the core of everything we do, and we're fiercely passionate about it!
All of our packaging is recyclable or biodegradable, and we mean everything! This includes all our postage bags, Thank you cards and address labels when ordering online. So do not hesitate to order with ease of mind, our planet is important to us and provides us with some incredible natural resources. Let's change the way we consume our products.
Is there anything you're dying to know?... We want everyone to feel welcomed into discussing the fantastic world of coffee, tasting our hand picked selection of single origins and experimenting at home with our tailored brewing guides. Giving anyone who is interested in coffee on any level a non judgemental education! We LOVE answering your questions! Ask away honey, the world of speciality coffee is so exciting!
