THE HOME OF ETHICALLY SOURCED FRESHLY ROASTED SPECIALITY COFFEE.
We believe the farmers who grow our 100% Arabica coffee should get more than just a fair wage for what they do.
We like transparency.
In fact, tank coffee isn't really a business. It's more of a family.
We've created a network of relationships, starting with the farmers and leading all the way to you, the customer.
What this means is everyone in the supply chain, including the farmers and their workers receive a fair and decent wage for what they do.
What you get is a great tasting cup of coffee but with that little something extra.
It's worth remembering we only roast to order.
We’re a small company with a big heart for the farmers in Africa who grow our wonderful 100% Arabica coffee. We carefully roast our beans by hand in small batches, and then deliver them to homes, businesses, cafes and delis. The idea is you experience the taste of coffee as it should be; at its freshest. Perhaps more importantly, we believe the farmers (those guys right at the start of the supply chain) who grow our 100% Arabica coffee should get more than just a fair wage for what they do. Postage and packing is free in the UK and you don’t even have to be at home to receive it; our special packs fit straight through your letterbox.
We like transparency. In fact, Tank Coffee isn’t really a business. It’s more of a family, a network of relationships, starting with the farmer and leading to you. Injustice grows out of anonymity and we’re not happy unless we know exactly the journey your coffee has taken to get from the cherry to your cup. What this means is everyone in the supply chain, including the farmers and their workers receive a fair and decent wage for what they do.
News Dec 2014 One of the good guys, Teklu Gabriel
We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Teklu Gabriel, a good friend of Tank Coffee, based out in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We understand Teklu was taken ill suddenly, and died shortly after.
As well as losing a friend who was our ears and our eyes on the ground, it’s a painful reminder of the reality of life expectancy in Ethiopia, and the other East African countries, where we source our coffees.
It’s also an opportunity to remember why we do what we do and what Teklu selflessly shared with us; a real passion for coffee that changes lives. We feel truly honoured to have known Teklu – he will be remembered for his sincerity, joy, knowledge and passion.
The Tank Coffee Vision
We set about talking to coffee importers and sellers, and finally ended up going to Ethiopia and Kenya to meet the farmers. We wanted to see with our own eyes what each farmer was really getting for all their hard work. To make sure our coffee was as fresh as can be, we also wanted to roast the coffee ourselves. On July 2009 a large Turkish lorry, driven by a large Turkish lorry driver, was seen negotiating the streets of Leigh with its precious cargo. On board was the Tank Coffee roaster all the way from Turkey. It wasn’t long before our lovely new roaster arrived at Tank Coffee house.

What do our customers have to say?
Just thought I'd let you know that the Kenyan beans I ordered a couple of weeks ago are going down really well! Excellent beans and really well roasted.
I am using an 'Aeropress' and a Porlex mini hand grinder. Less than £50 for both and it's better than anything I've ever tasted or used in the past for anything other than espresso.
Thanks to all you guys at Tank Coffee, really looking forward to trying the rest of the beans on offer.
I use the Atomic Espresso machine - now 53 years old - to brew your excellent Thangani Coffee from freshly ground beans and it makes really good coffee. Very economical.
Recently took delivery of our first Tankcoffee - Cameroon Hosnia Special beans - Wow! Taste just great thanks! It's good to be able order online and know that the flat packs will be dropped through the letterbox in a few days time. Keep up the great work!
Just about to place my 3rd order for your excellent coffee :)
I would like to encourage my friends & family to support tank coffee. I will be giving out the taster packs as Christmas presents together with some tank coffee info.
I'm from Kenya and my dad and grand dad before him are coffee growers. I have always brought my own coffee from Kenya. This is the first time I have bought coffee outside Kenya and I love it! I love what your company does for the communities and I will recommend you to all my friends.
