Owned by husband-and-wife team Tilly and Guy Spurr, Cast Iron Coffee Roasters is dedicated to providing the finest single-origin coffee speciality coffee available in West Sussex. The couple’s vision, which they established five years ago, is still relevant today, and they continue to strive for perfection.
Quality Coffee in a Creative Workspace
At Cast Iron Coffee Roasters, you can experience the entire coffee roasting operation, including barista training and quality assurance lab, in their friendly, accessible, and open-plan facility. Their workshop is also a creative workspace, with a cozy café area where you can enjoy a delicious selection of drinks and freshly baked goods made by local suppliers.
Roasting to Order for Maximum Freshness
Cast Iron roasts coffee beans to order at their workshop, ensuring maximum freshness. They aim to deliver their beans within three working days of the roast date, and the aroma will fill your home when you open the bag. You’ll taste the difference in every cup.
Passionate about Roasting
For Guy, roasting coffee is more than just a job; it’s a passion. He’s mastered the skill of turning green beans brown, and his career in the coffee industry is what he refers to as a “mid-life opportunity project.” Guy’s favourite brewing method is with a Chemex, which improves mouthfeel, and he’s lucky to have a GS3 La Marzocco at home.
Sustainable and Traceable Coffee Sourcing
Cast Iron believes that delicious coffee starts at the source. The quality of a cherry depends on how it’s picked, processed, and transported, which is why they source their coffee responsibly. They prioritize knowing the origin of their coffee, and this often means higher costs, but it also means better-tasting coffee in the long run. They also buy from the same producers year after year, ensuring job security for the producers and customer satisfaction.
Exciting New Single Origin Coffees
Guy’s passion for roasting means he’s always excited to try new coffees. His favourite origin is Ethiopia, which he believes is the gateway to specialty coffee for many people. By profiling new coffees, he can offer customers unique and exciting blends.
From Beans to Cheese
Having read all the coffee books Guy’s motto is “take what you like from them but roast your own way.” Despite racing in the Nürburgring 24-hour race three times, he considers coming second at the Rackham Fete cheese straw competition his greatest achievement outside of Cast Iron.
