Coffee fans can get a behind-the-scenes look at how their favourite brew goes from bean to cup when Ethical Addictions launches tours of its new roastery this autumn.
The ethical coffee company recently moved into its new premises in Staverton, near Gloucestershire Airport, to expand its roastery operations and training facilities.
The building has been renovated and new equipment has been installed, promising to provide visitors with a sensory and educational experience, as well as incredible coffee.
Coffee lovers will soon be able to book a tour of the new facility, which includes a welcome coffee and cake, roastery demonstration and a Q&A with one of its expert roasters, followed by either a coffee tasing or a basic barista skills session.
Describing its process as 'farm to cup, and back again', Ethical Addictions buys its speciality grade Arabica beans direct from farmers and prides itself on paying fair prices, ensuring working conditions are good and taking care of the environment.
It roasts its beans in-house in Gloucestershire and also provides barista training, as well as espresso machine installation and servicing. It also re-invests in coffee-producing communities, either through coffee production or through social projects such as installing fresh water supplies or building school toilets.
The roastery is hosting an open week from Monday 2 to Friday 6 October 2023, inviting coffee lovers to come in, have a look around and ask staff all their burning coffee questions, before tour bookings go live in autumn.
Roastery tours will cost £39 per person with a bag of coffee to take home.
