Volcano Coffee Works. Great Coffee Made Better.

Ethical coffee sourced from independent farms, freshly
roasted from our home in Brixton. That’s our idea of great coffee. Volcano Coffee Works. Independent Works.

We are Volcano Coffee Works, a speciality coffee roastery in Brixton founded in 2010 by Kurt, a coffee-loving chef from New Zealand.  Volcano began in a vintage Italian Piaggio Ape cart serving coffee from the footpath of Rosendale Road in West Norwood.  Kurt brought his palate trained through years in the kitchen as a chef, his passion for coffee, his insatiable curiosity for how machines work together  and today 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.

Flavour is at the heart of our approach to coffee

Our signature taste comes from a combination of Kurt’s culinary perspective and the world of food science which is flavour centred and why flavour plays such a critical way in which we talk about each of our coffees. Today, our state-of-the-art roastery is based in Brixton where we love to host people and share our love of great coffee. When we source and roast coffees, we always look to build a story or paint a picture from bean to cup every time. We want people to experience and see where their cup has derived from, all the way from the sourcing, climatic differences to the way we roast to deliver the profile and flavour of each of our coffees. Our core blends are thoughtfully named and we combine our no-compromise approach to taste and quality and the full transparency of the whole journey of our coffee.

Our ethos

We believe coffee can be a force for good. We believe in environmentally sustainable and ethically traded coffee, and work with partners all over the world who actively engage community-based improvements. Our ethical trading principles ensure that our successes benefit the entire supply chain and beyond, from direct initiatives at origin to local communities here in the UK.

Great coffee made better

While so many things about the future are uncertain it’s reassuring to know that when you strip everything away you will discover that what Volcano Coffee Works was, what we are and what we will be has never changed. Whether it’s a footpath, cafe, roastery, or a restaurant for us it is about the thrill of knowing that every cup of coffee is an opportunity to enact positive change in a world where everyone deserves a fair shot.
