IT ALL STARTED WITH A COFFEE SHOP CALLED NIBBLERS
It all began when Bryan who had his own Cafe was constantly frustrated by the service he was receiving. Espresso coffee machines were rarely found in cafes in those days so support inadequate. This comprised the taste & quality of coffee and as a person who loved coffee he felt it could be greatly improved. Having experienced quality coffee himself first hand in his days training abroad as a hotel manager, in London & Switzerland, he knew it was achievable.
So he began sourcing his own coffee direct from a roaster. It worked a treat in the cafe and everybody loved the coffee so much even other cafes around began to get their coffee from Bryan and so our journey begun as he started a wholesale business.
Bryan used to pack up his car at the time (a 1979 blue Ford Escort with a red door) and began by going out & selling door to door. The coffee always well received and Bryan used to come home with an empty car. (Image; is front of Bryan's Cafe 'Nibblers Coffee Shop' in 1988 prior to establishing the wholesale business)
The Company expanded as Bryan's reputation for his excellent coffees and personal service grew. It was at this point the second generation got a little taste for the business as Bryan would take us, his sons, George & Matt, out for the day on his routes during our summer holidays.
Now we are both involved in the business and have grown and expanded our product range and services. We've partnered with a long established Irish Roaster, along with being the exclusive partner in Ireland for Bristot, a world renowned Italian Coffee. We are always open to tasting new Coffee blends & origins. (Image; Margaret (aka our mother) passing Matt a box of Coffee before Bryan heads off for his daily deliveries, 1990)
Our range of services now not only include providing tasty Coffee, it has developed and redefined over the years. We present the latest information with continuous Barista Training and Education and advise our customers on the best equipment or Espresso Coffee Machine.

Even as our business grows, we have always maintained the core principles instilled in us by Bryan, to provide premium quality products with a top level, personal service.
We see the big picture and try to develop partnerships with our customers which benefit both parties, always providing honest, impartial advice.
Our goal has always been the development of long term relationships with our customers, with some customers with us over 20 years. (Image: Matt picking Green Coffee on a trip to Colombia)
As we have grown up in the Coffee Industry we have seen the market grow and change over the last 30 years.
We continuously adapt and change, both the products we offer but also how we offer them.
We have recently moved in to new warehouses and have custom built a new Coffee Machine Showroom showcasing the latest equipment. We also operated a new state of the art Barista School. (Image; George visiting a well-known site on a coffee trip to Peru)
