Where does that bag of super strong coffee in your kitchen cupboard from?
Beanpress has now become 'The Roasting Rooms'. It's going to be a co-operative roasting space which a few craft brands will call their home.
The new roasting area
It is a truly impressive facility - roomier, brighter and cleaner. It's going to give us the space to increase production further, and launch some exciting new products very soon (watch this space)
Once this bug that's been going around goes away I'm hoping to be able to invite some lucky Cannonballers down for a visit.
