Hi, my name is Mike Keats the Founder of mk: Coffee Co. which is a new venture for me as a serious coffee drinker.

I have purchased many different coffees from different brands over the years. So a new challenge started.

It was important to me when looking for a partner they buy coffee beans direct from farmers. While also roasting the beans here in the UK.

I was keen to start with a small selection of coffees to understand which were going to be the best sellers.

Initially selecting some premium coffee from various regions such as Colombia, Peru, Ethiopia. The range will grow and will look to add accessories and coffee machines to our offering.

We sell some of the finest single origin coffees either individually, bundles or by subscription of 3, 6 and 12 months.

Future plans include; develop the brand, packaging and offer a bespoke subscription service. Although we are currently testing reusable stainless steel Nespresso pods. Our aim is to have these manufactured here in the UK and offer an eco-friendly option.

All very exciting and looking forward to my new venture.
