The Wiltshire-based speciality coffee company, Easy José Coffee, has signed a 10-year deal with landlord HPH Commercial Property on a unit on Westbury’s “thriving” Woodland Estate.
The firm – which prides itself on being “renowned for its quality products and ethics” – joins a host of other businesses at the site including Prezola, Vestry Online and A Great Read.
It is understood that Carter Jonas acted as agents for HPH for the deal.
The coffee company was founded by José Melim in 2010 after a decade of working in the catering industry across Europe. Using his background as a former Barista Champion and Speciality Coffee Association qualified coffee trainer, José provides “exceptional” coffee, “ethically sourced and fairly priced.”
He said: “We spend time in-country working with coffee farming communities, investing in processes that produce a quality product. We also aim to cut the supply chain to its shortest length by working directly with farmers and community leaders. Once back in the UK we roast our coffee on the greenest roaster currently available on the market.”
The move to Westbury from its previous base at Hartley Farm, Winsley has allowed the company to “ramp up” all areas of the business, including adding a coffee training school to its offer – both for trade clients and home enthusiasts.
Jose added: “We work with Conti espresso machinery and Compak grinders and we’re also now able to stock a wide selection of barista tools and other ancillary items such as hot chocolate and tea, so that we’re a one-stop shop for our clients, cutting delivery costs and adding value.”
Lindsay Holdoway, managing director of HPH Commercial Property, said: “José and his team’s passion for coffee is evident in everything Easy José does. The company has firmly established itself as a market leader when it comes to excellent, ethically sourced coffee.
“The Woodland Estate has become a hub for successful businesses in Westbury and will serve as a central hub to allow Easy José to continue to do what they do best.”
