Why work with Durham Coffee

Here at Durham Coffee, we are passionate about connecting people through coffee and celebrating our rich heritage. We are committed to ethically sourced speciality coffee and the relationships we build along the way from bean to cup are very important to us. As a wholesale customer we want you to feel a part of our Durham Coffee community.

We love sharing our enthusiasm and knowledge and will provide you with all the support you need to get the best out of our coffee and deliver an exceptional cup of coffee your customers will want to come back for.

To us, coffee roasting is a very personal undertaking; it is more than simply roasting great coffee, but also about fusing exciting flavour profiles with a celebration of heritage and community. Through our unique Heritage Range – with names such as Cathedral Blend, St. Cuthbert’s Journey and Miners’ Gala – we want to encourage your customers to connect to the North-East and cherish the moments & savour the taste.

Coffee Bean

Our Coffee & Roaster

We only roast speciality graded coffee beans ensuring an ethical and sustainable supply chain as well as premium quality coffee for the consumer. With a range of beans from around the world, we aim to showcase the diversity of flavour within the speciality coffee industry.

Our green beans are hand-roasted in small batches in our 12kg AMR (Air-Motion-Roaster) to ensure optimal freshness. Did you know that we are the first in the UK to roast on a 12kg AMR? We are excited to be pioneering this cutting-edge technology. The vortex within the roasting chamber created by the air roasts the beans evenly from all sides by suspending them on a bed of hot air. This gentler method of roasting benefits from a longer de-gassing and resting period to allow the flavours to blossom; the result is an exceptionally flavoursome and clean cup of coffee.

Equipment, Consultancy & Training

As a wholesale customer, you are a part of our Durham Coffee Family and we want to make sure you feel supported throughout your journey. With many years of experience in the hospitality industry running our own café, we know just how overwhelming getting started can be. Rest assured that we are here to walk you through everything you need to know to enable you to run your business with confidence. From choosing equipment and creating a coffee menu to training you on how to get the best out of our speciality coffee, having the right set up for your needs is very important and we are here to help and advise you along the way.

One of the most important tasks is choosing the right equipment to create a smooth-running coffee brewing experience. We are proud to partner up with La Spaziale UK and the Brew-It-Group, to offer you a range of excellent espresso machines and grinders. With options to buy outright as well as great rental programmes we are confident you will find something that suits your needs. Once you have chosen your set up, we will teach you everything you need to know about dialling in your machine and maintaining your equipment to give it a long lease of life.

Our Clients Say


Working with Carina and Bernhard at Durham Coffee continues to be a fantastic relationship for our museum. Durham Coffee took time to understand the needs of our customers and business to create a bespoke blend including fulfilling a rather complex brief for packaging. Their service and speed continues to be of great help to us.

I chose Durham Coffee as suppliers for my café based on the fact that their coffee is not only delicious, but also ethically sourced as well as locally produced. They are efficient and prompt with deliveries and their customer service goes above and beyond, while always maintaining great communication. My customers absolutely love the beautiful coffee I am able to sell them, thanks to the Durham Coffee team, and I am very grateful to have such an amazing roaster to support and be supported by!

Our farm shop has been stocking Durham Coffee beans and ground coffee for several months. We love all the different flavours and their Durham-themed names, especially “The Dun Cow”. We’ve had many repeat purchases from our customers, who usually know more about coffee than we do!

Some of our regulars had already been buying this coffee, but they love the fact that they can pick some up with their weekly shop. The pack sizes are great and whenever we place an order it’s freshly prepared and delivered up to us within a day or so… just another reason why we love to support local independent businesses in County Durham.
