Established in the heart of Bristol in 1970, Wogan Coffee is now in its III generation, with one Wogan in Bristol, and the other in London.

As a wholly independent family company, living and breathing coffee for 50 years, we have learnt a lot along the way - not only about coffee, but how climate affects all our futures, here and in coffee growing regions. So, for us our mission is simple; to make sure that coffee doesn't cost the Earth, for your pocket and the planet, and so we are pledging to be Carbon Neutral by 2030; building a better future for generations to come.

Our history

We, at Wogan Coffee, have been lovingly hand-roasting speciality, ethical, sustainable and traceable coffees since 1970. In our third generation, and a wholly independent family company, you can find us rooted in Bristol; the same city as when Mr Wogan established the business over fifty years ago. Laura and James, grandchildren of the bowler hatted gentleman, now have the ropes firmly in their grasp; James as our resident Q Grader in the Bristol Roastery Headquarters, and Laura in London.

Our coffee

Our ambition is to bring out the best in every bean that we import, and improve the quality and potential of speciality coffee - from cafés and restaurants, to enthusiastic home brewers, we want to give you the best coffee-drinking experience, and improve the lives of coffee farmers, producers and their families while we’re at it.

At Wogan Coffee we pride ourselves in sourcing hand-picked coffees that are 100% ethical, sustainable, fully traceable, and of the utmost tastiness. Many are Fairtrade and certified Organic and we are also very proud to have long term Direct Trade relationships with many of our farmers. These relationships allow us to offer support every step of the way by ensuring that farmers are paid a fair price, and often work together to provide an extra subsidy to help with health, education, infrastructure and better equipment. On a business level, this encourages innovation and expansion, while providing them with the long term security and support that a relationship creates. On a personal level, it ensures a more sustainable and improved way of life for farmers and producers. As an added bonus, we receive frequent letters and updates from the farms that we work with, and the children that we support. We want you to be confident in the knowledge that the cup of coffee you are drinking is doing a world of good.

Our sustainable pledge

We’re on our way to achieving our pledge to be Carbon Neutral by 2030 - our new fleet of electric vehicles is powered by the solar panels covering both of our warehouses, which produce the same amount of electricity as we use every single year, throughout our roastery, Brew Bar and Training Campus. 

In the Roastery, we use two vintage coffee roasters that have been restored and refurbished to make them as efficient as humanly possible; a 1991 Probat for 150 kilo roasts, and a 1968, 90 kilo Probat. Our new and shiny roasters (a 30 kilo Joper, a 1 kilo North, and a 50g sample Ikawa) are used for cupping potential additions to the roster, monthly specials, and for our bi-weekly cupping sessions. We are also investigating  a new electric roaster for our smaller batch roasts. Beyond the roastery, all of our packaging is now LDPE, making it easy for you to recycle at home.
