Our Story and Wholesale Supply
a short film about campervan coffee co
How it all started
My wife and I bought 'Rolf' our 1976 VW Bay Window Campervan in May 2007 and started our travels around Europe and North Africa for 4 months. On our return and after a number of jobs, in the cycling industry, working as a fish and cheese monger, I finally settled on a job in coffee setting up Hermitage Road in Hitchin which was quickly named by The Independent as one of the top 50 coffee shops in the country.
Following this I wanted to develop my knowledge and vision, delving deeper into the industry so I established Campervan Coffee Co in 2015 using ``Rolf`` to go to street food markets and introduce speciality coffee to the high street. Whilst doing this I bought a small coffee roaster and started my exploration into speciality coffee.
We now supply all aspects of the hospitality industry from coffee shops to fine dining restaurants, businesses and hotels. The roastery is now based just 30 minutes from London and Cambridge in a converted barn where we roast coffee, provide barista training and have espresso machines to try before you commit to partnering with us.
