Founded in 2015 by Luke Underdown, Garage Coffee Roasters is a speciality coffee roastery based in Hoath, just outside of Canterbury, Kent. Owner & Founder Luke identified a gap in the market to bring great coffee to the people of Kent, and started trading at local markets and events to build the Garage brand. By 2016, Garage Coffee had gained a significant following and started to supply some wonderful hospitality businesses across the county.
In 2017, Garage Coffee opened it's flagship shop and training room in the heart of Canterbury and has now built a team making great coffee and sharing the same vision across our shops in Canterbury, Whitstable, Margate and Herne Bay!
We roast in small 12kg batches for optimum quality, and only roast specialty grade coffees which are always fully traceable and fairly traded. Since launching, we have been building meaningful relationships with producers, sourcing coffee from the same farms season after season.
And finally, why Garage? Our roastery is situated in a converted garage! Admittedly, our roaster did have humbler beginnings- firing up in a disused shipping container- but we have now transformed the garage into a roasting labyrinth, office and training room.
