THE COFFEE SHOP

We serve single origin coffee and offer you a choice of freshly roasted beans. All our coffee is roasted on our Probatino roaster ensuring the best possible taste for you to enjoy.

All our drinks are created through a Marzocco PB espresso machine using Mythos 1 grinders. We serve 18 grams of coffee in each drink and fine tune the grind setting to maximise the unique flavours of each bean. This ensures the perfect shot each time.

Our milk comes from our local farm offering a really creamy texture that enhances the flavour of our coffee. We always have dairy-free alternatives.

In addition to coffee, we serve a range of teas, hot chocolate, soft drinks, beer, cakes, sandwiches and snacks.

THE ROASTERY

We source our beans through established collaborative supply chains that ensures mutual profit and positive social impact for the coffee smallholders. Our selections are based on quality and flavour, with high traceability and impact at origin.

Our coffee is roasted in our Granby Street coffee shop on a small 1.2kg Probatino roaster. As a micro roaster, we roast little and often to ensure that our coffee stays fresh and tastes great.

Our Story

Leicester Coffee House Company combines good quality, ethically sourced, locally roasted coffee with supported learning opportunities for young people. 

We have been roasting coffee since 2014 and deliver it to customers via mail order. Our coffee shop is based in an historic building in Leicester’s Granby Street. 

We took our name from the original Leicester Coffee and Cocoa House Company that began life in 1877. This company combined commercial profit with the benefit of townspeople and it too opened its first coffee shop on Granby Street. 

The idea of a community project running through a coffee business is one that we have been developing for some time. We will provide not only fantastic coffee for the people of Leicester and beyond but also ensure that opportunities for young people to flourish are at the heart of what we do.

SOCIAL ENTERPRISE

Setting up a coffee shop and roastery was not enough for us. We wanted to embed social value and purpose throughout the whole business.

Many young people face unique challenges and find traditional learning difficult. They want to work but need some guidance, direction and the opportunity to learn in a different way.

Inspired by a student and now working in collaboration with Keyham Lodge and Millgate Schools, we provide learning opportunities for young people with individual needs to flourish. They will be supported with employment and training opportunities, helped to develop confidence, transferable employability skills and get ready for work. There will also be the opportunity to develop entrepreneurial skills through a range of connected micro-business projects.

At Leicester Coffee House Company, we provide opportunities to develop the attitudes and behaviours they need to succeed.
