Maude Coffee are a speciality micro roaster operating from our base under the railway lines of Leeds. Our mission is to introduce the world’s best quality coffee to the UK market in a considered, disciplined way. To this end, we source only coffees that score 86 or above on Cup Of Excellence (COE) scores.
We exclusively serve single origin coffees, working very closely to the seasons of the coffee-growing world to ensure we buy and roast only the most freshly harvested green beans and produce the most flavoursome coffee that bean has the potential to be.
We aim to use only coffee that is highly traceable back to the grower, be it an estate, farm or microlot. This way we ensure an at all points ethical supply chain and know that those working to produce such good coffee are paid what they deserve and are rewarded with recognition for their efforts.
We’re a small team of passionate individuals who all care deeply about showing the breadth and depth of coffee’s potential, both as a diverse, tasty product for your enjoyment first thing in the morning and as a sustainable livelihood for the farmer.
With over 8 years combined experience in almost all the aspects of the industry short of farming ourselves, from being a barista to engineering, from sourcing green to roasting, we aim to bring all this to bear on everything we do. The first roast we ever did was conducted with the same care and consideration as our last of the week.
