New stores and online roastery for 39 Steps
Roaster and retailer 39 Steps Coffee Haus is set to open its second Coffee Haus in Knightsbridge later this year, its third site including its Woolwich-based roastery, after the success of its first cafe in Soho.
Plans are also afoot to open a shop in Washington DC in the first half of 2019.
A brand new website has also just been launched, offering 39 Steps Coffee brands both to the wholesale and consumer markets for the first time.
The new ‘online roastery business’, will see the beans shipped fresh from the grower as they come into season, before roasting onsite.
There will be four different types of sustainably sourced coffees available for wholesale, with a blend, espresso and two varieties of filter coffee ‘to suit every type of café’, it said. The beans will be available to buy in multiples of 1kg bags, with global shipping capabilities.
39 Steps' head roaster JB said: “The roastery has been founded on creating more than just an exceptional product. I’ve secured and tasted specialty coffee for over the course of more than a decade and, with 39 Steps, there is the opportunity to start making a deeper and longer lasting impact on the farms we work with. It’s our new standard, and a standard we hope to bring to the on trade and businesses, as well as households, across the nation.”
The name 39 Steps refers to the number of different steps that it takes to make a cup of coffee, tracking the journey of the bean on the coffee plantation, through to the cup.
