Matthew Algie is the UK’s most innovative coffee roasters having kick-started the UK espresso revolution, and introduced the world's first triple certified espresso, to market. In fact, we've been innovating since 1864, sticking true to our principles all the while. We source the finest coffees from producers who we know, and we roast the beans with great care to bring out their best aroma and flavour.

Because we understand the whole coffee journey, we realise that the only quality that matters is the quality of the coffee in your customer’s cup. That’s why we also supply and maintain top grade coffee equipment, with a nationwide team of directly employed, highly skilled service engineers; and provide barista training to our customers through our dedicated training team. Through our sister company, Espresso Warehouse we offer a huge range of market leading non-coffee products such as premium chocolate, loose leaf tea, cold brew and craft soda RTDs and coffee hardware to name a few. Our new Blak Nektar Speciality Coffee brand now brings the ‘Fifth Wave’ of Speciality Coffee to market allowing our customers to present premium, seasonal coffee to their customers, which we can support with next generation brewing equipment and SCA [Speciality Coffee Association] accredited training courses.

We are proud to be a category partner to many University and Further Education customers, and have a strong understanding of the sector particularly with regards to our product range, requisite training and standards management as well as equipment maintenance and servicing. Our local account managers are also on hand to provide market expertise which is shaped to devise targeted strategies, at outlet level, to improve sales through improving customer loyalty, increasing trip spend or driving footfall to outlets.
