Who we are
In 2010, coffee roaster Kurt Stewart founded Volcano Coffee Works on a mission to introduce the world to better coffee - better tasting, better for the environment and better for the people who grow it.
Blended with a chef’s acute sense of taste and a New Zealander’s unquenchable thirst for high quality coffee, Kurt’s coffee is admired around the world.
‘For me selling coffee the way we do, where everything is traceable, is all about making people think about where it comes from and the impact it’s having across the whole chain.’
From Kurt’s kitchen to the company’s permanent site in Brixton, Volcano is one of the best coffee roasters in London. We work with partners all over the world who actively engage in promoting sustainability and community-based improvements to ensure that our successes benefit the entire supply chain and beyond, from direct initiatives at origin to local communities here in the UK.
It takes many more hands to produce small batch, speciality coffee than it does to turn out commodity coffee, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
