COVID -19 Policy... what are we doing?
As we are all well aware these are trying times for everyone and so we have to make some tough decisions for our business, staff and safety for our customers.
The specialty coffee industry globally has been hit hard by this pandemic and are thoughts are with those who are sick, closed, in lockdown or facing staffing problems.
We value every coffee shop, farmer, importer, exporter, restaurant, bakery, hotel and roasteries working during these times and your support in keeping independent businesses going is key to survival.
Our team are here working hard ensuring we can keep you going with the beautiful coffees we work with.
Outlined below is some early information following the breaking news that is currently being delivered in the UK.

We are here for you!!!! We are currently roasting and dispatching orders 5 days a week as per our usual roast policy.

Walk in Customers and Business Meetings
In line with the government advice we urge you at this moment to please order your coffees via the webstore, at the Bath Farmers Market or purchase in a local cafe.
The protection of our teams health is key during this period and we hope you understand this tough decision.
As for business meetings in the roastery we will have to slow these down during this period and opt for phone calls, emails, facetime, skype... what ever works.
Farmers Market & Local Customers
The farmers market is still on. However we have decided not to trade this is due to protecting staff and also to protect our safe production area.
We are a full team.
We are sanitising all work areas throughout the day as per usual
Hand washing through out the day
There is no team contact (no handshakes or high fives)
We are not cupping coffees together.
Quality control and new coffee selection is being made individually.
Any team member who shows signs of Covid - 19 will be sent home to self isolate in line with world health organisation time periods with sickness pay.
Much Love and thank you for all your support during these times
