Saying goodbye to Waltham Abbey...

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 before saying 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.

Once the roaster was gone, we cleared everything out, ready for the journey to our new site.

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.

The Story of Duke Street Blend Tea

Duke Street Blend is one of our most popular and best selling teas. This tea has so much going for it and its versatility means it can be enjoyed at any time.


Roasting with my father

“You can manage on your own now. But, if you are doing a very dark roast, come and get me before it cracks.” said my father after he had been teaching me about roasting coffee for several weeks.
