MILK BEACH sources specialty coffee from around the world that is traceable to the farm or co-operative. We carefully roast the coffee ourselves in small batches every week. We don't wholesale so our coffee is only available to enjoy at MILK BEACH and you can purchase bags in the cafe to take home.
Elliot Milne and Matthew Robley-Siemonsma are two of the founders of MILK BEACH.
Matthew is a two-time UK Roasting Champion. Over a ten year career in coffee Matthew has played instrumental roles at both Prufrock Coffee and TAP Coffee.
Elliot worked in Ethiopia with Technoserve and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help set up the Coffee Initiative Project. The project helped coffee farmers access sustainable financing to purchase better equipment and improve the quality of their coffee. This allowed them to sell on international markets at significantly higher prices. The profits were used to fund local schools, healthcare and infrastructure. It is a huge privilege for us to purchase and sell coffee from the farmers Elliot once helped.
