Leicester Coffee House Company combines good quality, ethically sourced, locally roasted coffee with supported learning opportunities for young people.
We began by roasting beans on a popcorn maker before progressing onto a small home roaster. All our beans are now roasted on 1kg Probat roaster at our Granby Street coffee house.
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.
