Originally from Seattle Washington, the birthplace of Starbucks, Smell the coffee was started in St. Ives to sell specialist Barista coffee in the UK. The beans are selected from all over the world and blended for domestic use. A lot of commercial coffee has additives, preservatives , colouring and flavouring. We rely on a good blend of beans to give you the taste “experience” you want.

Our coffee blends have names that will give you the suggestion of what the experience of the coffee will be like, as well as where the beans come from. As you can see from the map below we source our coffee from some surprising places. Lots of them as well. This means that we can have Regular, Stable and High Quality as our watchwords when we blend.

As well as shopping we want to use this website as a blog about Coffee. We can all be coffee connoisseurs today. There are so many coffee making machines on the market, many designed for domestic use. We want to provide you with coffee beans and ground coffee that matches your new coffee making technology.

We also retail coffee grinders and a variety of coffee making equipment, whatever type of coffee you like to drink.
