Meet The Coffee Beaners

Here's our team from family to friends and of course roasters and order packers

Here you can see the person who packed your order, someone you have met when you've popped in or spoken to on the phone. We believe it's nice to put a face to a name.

Jenni

Jenni

Jenni joined us from John Lewis’ customer services nearly 5 years ago. If you call or email the roastery, the chances are you will speak with our lovely Jenni. Jenni plays the role of second mother to the boys in the roastery, helping them with not just work-related issues, but those of the heart too!  Jenni has known Sean, Ollie and Harvey from teenagers through to young adults and as they all know, there is never a dull moment at the Coffee Bean Shop its always fast paced and busy!

Jenni's favourite coffee is Monsoon Malabar, she came to us as an INSTANT coffee drinker…tutt tutt!   We soon changed her mind and her tastebuds!  

Jenni's favourite past time is watching thrillers and reading gruesome books. She loves all kinds of music and reading. When away from the roastery, Jenni enjoys spending time with her 2 children as well as her yearly trip, partying abroad with her girlfriends. Jenni describes Coffee Bean Shop as "working for and with the best bunch of people" and having superb coffee on tap!  

I have enormous respect for Jenni, her coffee knowledge is extensive and her attention to detail and passion for her job is, well what can I say, - impressive. Jenni is integral to the running of the business and an asset to the Coffee Bean family.  

 

Ollie

Ollie 

Ollie is my eldest son and has the most coffee knowledge within the family… so he says!! He has worked for Coffee Bean Shop since the beginning when he would pack coffee after school in the kitchen, while I would be roasting in the garage. 

Ollie has always had an enormous commitment to Coffee Bean Shop and is very loyal to his family.  When he was younger, I decided that he could do with a gap year, something non-coffee and a change of scene.  He travelled to Australia and unsurprisingly he ended up working as a barista in a coffee shop!  He says coffee is in his blood, perhaps it really is?

He says his most embarrassing moment was getting onto the wrong plane and ending up 2000 miles away from where he thought he was going.  I would wholly disagree and say it was when he came home with bedbugs in his rucksack from a hostel out there!!!!

He also says that a roast dinner is his favourite food, but only when his mum has cooked it, so he is rather like a homing pigeon, back home on a Sunday after playing golf.

His favourite coffee is Hawaiian Kona, he would love to travel there (for research purposes of course) He describes his work at Coffee Bean Shop to mean EVERYTHING to him which is lovey to hear because he has watched the business grow right from the first order being sent out and we are privileged Ollie chooses to continue to support the family business.

 

Harvey

Harvey 

Harvey is my second eldest son, he was also in operation within the founding years of Coffee Bean Shop, helping to pack the orders and run them to the post office after school. Now recently graduated from Bath University with a degree in Entrepreneurial Business he has joined us full time to develop his own new cold brew coffee. It won’t be long before you can try some too!

Harvey's favourite coffee is Peruvian Tunki, he drinks this black either as espresso or americano. Harvey says the Coffee Bean Shop means "family, friends, excellent coffee and opportunity" 

I was delighted to welcome Harvey back after three expensive years away at Uni!   He has taken the lead to project manage the website launch and overseeing our video and photography.  He is a breath of fresh air for the business and we feel lucky to have him.

It came as no surprise Harvey wants to start his own business and be accountable for his own future. The cold brew venture gives him such a wealth of family knowledge and support to change the face of cold brew in the UK and I can’t wait to be one of the first to try the samples hot, or rather cold off the press next month!

 

Sean

Sean 

Sean is one of the longest-serving members of the Coffee Bean family, Sean started his work life in Coffee Bean Shop when he was 16, since then has become the designated coffee roaster and he has roasted well over a thousand tons of coffee. 

Sean is our full-time coffee roaster; he ensures all the coffee is of the highest quality and tastes as good as can be. Sean roasts every day to provide all our serious coffee drinkers with the freshest coffee possible. 

His favourite coffee? Hawaiian Kona, he loves roasting it and he drinks it constantly.  Sean believes Coffee Bean Shop means a place of belonging for him. 

Sean, although looks like one of my sons; is in fact not. Although when people ask him "is your mum in" he will always just say yes or no and will not say otherwise because he has learned that it’s just easier that way and avoids a conversation that he has had so many times! 

Thank you for choosing Coffee Bean Shop, for a superb range of coffees, roasted daily and despatched to you within 24 hours. 

We are delighted you take what you eat and drink seriously – especially your coffee. You know fresh, medium flame roasted and freshly ground coffee takes the taste of coffee to another level; a taste you use to start your day or to compliment a fine meal; a taste that speaks of your standards and values. 

We offer the freshest coffee you can buy – as the most important driver of taste is freshness - adding expertise, advice and promotional offers as standard. From espresso machines to cafetiere - we cater for every need and lifestyle.
