Symposium Coffee Roasters

They're back! It's our first ever re-feature - we're so excited about Symposium's latest developments that we couldn't resist featuring them in the club again. 

Symposium Coffee Roasters are one of London's newest additions - founded by Steven Sheard & Phillip Oliver in January 2020. With backgrounds spanning the British Army, business and academia and a keen interest in great quality coffee, they have the unique drive required to start their own roastery during challenging times.

Symposium specialise in East African coffee and currently use a 15kg Giesen to roast coffee fresh for every order. They are a small team with big dreams and the timing of the social distancing measures in the UK have undoubtedly bean hard for them to navigate, so we are absolutely thrilled to be featuring them in the Secret Caffeine Club.

Symposium have recently partnered with Max Fronteras Coffee Company to create a special limited run of their Rukera Kenyan which we'll be featuring this week.
