At Out Of Office Coffee, where we get our coffee beans from is rather important to us. We often get asked if we roast the beans ourselves but we think it is important to work to our strengths and therefore we focus on hospitality and rely on proper experts with unique skills to partner with. That’s why we work with Colonna. All the coffee beans we brew in our coffee houses are roasted by Colonna and we offer a full range of their coffee beans and specialty capsules for home use too.
Colonna is driven by the desire to serve the world’s most exceptional coffee. They have written books about it and won Barista Championships with it. Founder of Colonna, Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood, has been at the forefront of coffee’s third-wave movement since opening Colonna & Small’s, the world-renowned destination coffee shop in Bath. Three UK Barista Championships came next, then pioneering scientific research, resulting in published academic papers and the groundbreaking Water For Coffee textbook. Focus soon shifted to the coffee itself and applying Maxwell’s industry leading experience towards making exceptional coffee accessible.
Colonna Coffee was born from this simple idea and they apply Maxwell’s innovative approach to everything they do. They source coffee from the world’s best producers and roast it with scientific precision. They do all this for the pursuit of flavour — to push coffee beyond expectation. That is why they make the perfect coffee partners for Out Of Office Coffee.
