Welcome to Volcano Coffee Works

Volcano Coffee Works was founded by Kurt Stewart in 2010.

Nearly 10 years ago Kurt founded Volcano Coffee Works - an ethical roastery that would bring the great tasting coffees he had grown up with in New Zealand to the UK, while supporting the livelihoods of the communities who grow and produce it. 

From a coffee cart on the streets of West Norwood to our state-of-the-art roastery in Brixton, Volcano has grown to a team of 30 passionate people. Kurt remains the beating heart of our family and continues to roast the first batch of coffee of the day.
