The story of our business began with H.R. Higgins (Coffee-man) who was apprenticed to learn the coffee and tea trades in the early 1900s. He lived-in with the other apprentices, and before being allowed anywhere near a customer had to become competent in many skills.
David Higgins joined the business in 1982 learning the art of roasting coffee from his father and became managing director in 2003, and partner Nick joined him in 2013. David's father still works in the business and remains a fountain of knowledge.
Their aim is to continue the family tradition of personal service and attention to quality which are just as important now as they were at the beginning.
