It’s been a busy week for all the team at H. R. Higgins as we have relocated to our brand new roastery in North Yorkshire!

This exciting new chapter is of course tinged with some sadness as we say goodbye to our home for the last 40 years.

The premises was purchased in 1982 when we moved our coffee roasting, mail order and offices here as the business grew.

 

On Tuesday 23rd February 2021, we did our final roast, a Jamaica Blue Mountain.

 

Then we said so long to our old Probat roaster…

 

David and the team dismantled the machine…

And it was packed up to be taken to it’s new home…

 

We then cleared everything ready for the journey to our new site!

Until the only thing left to do was a good clean down.

For Mr Tony, things came full circle as his first position at H. R. Higgins was pushing a broom.

 

And then we said a fond farewell to Waltham Abbey…
