Esquires Coffee

"In 2000, Esquires Coffee, with its roots firmly established in Vancouver, established a presence in both the UK and Ireland. A critical decision for the company was to select the right coffee partners who shared the same passion, ethos and values in terms of quality, sustainability and great tasting coffee. After extensive research, we chose Matthew Algie as our coffee partners and 20 years on the guiding principles that led us to this decision continues to this day. From their state of the art roastery with cutting edge technology and the sustainability programmes they operate through their Fairtrade and Organic principles that produce such amazing bespoke blends for Esquires right through to their expertise on the ground to all our outlets is a crucial factor in our ongoing success in the marketplaces we operate in."
