Having worked for one of the U.K’s oldest coffee roasters for a number of years, a desire to set up my own business was borne following a takeover in 2015.

“I wanted to create a company that was based on great quality products with an aftercare service to match. Not putting profit margins and quality of service, ahead of customer satisfaction”.

From this, Shutelake Coffee started trading in April 2016.

As a family business, our heritage is very important. Most of our coffee blends, have a back story or connection to our family.

Although I take care of the day to day running of the business, my family is generally not too far away.

My wife Rebecca helps with Administration, my daughter Eleanor helps with Social Media, my son Joe helps keep the Warehouse in order and finally, Willow our pet Labrador guard dog and inspiration for the name Shutelake as its her Kennel Club breed name.
