Our Cafés & Roastery

Come and visit our Cafés and Coffee Roastery in West Sussex.

At Edgcumbes our fundamental values are simple: Quality, Sustainability and Education.

We welcome you to come see for yourselves…

All our coffee is freshly roasted on at our Sussex Roastery which is always open so you can have a peek inside! It really is an authentic coffee experience in West Sussex.

Edgcumbes is expanding and we now have two cafés serving our freshly roasted coffee & loose leaf teas. Enjoy a cup of your favourite brew along with hand-prepared savouries, delicious cakes and pastries – we have plenty of vegan and gluten-free options too! Be sure to check each café for their specials.

Both cafés source all their produce from quality local bakeries, independents and small artisan suppliers – ensuring you get top quality grub whilst supporting local business and reducing carbon footprint.

Where the magic happens…The EDGE Café and Roastery is located just outside of Arundel. We’ve been described as ‘the very definition of a destination’ venue. Do pop in on your next trip to the South Coast or when you’re passing to visit nearby Arundel. The space is lovely, light and airy and perfect for coffee and tea lovers to meet, chat, work, read and think. Or take a seat in our relaxing open courtyard and simply watch the world go by and breathe in the aromas of the coffee being roasted.

Absolutely everyone is welcome here. Local commuters, ramblers, cyclists and dog-walkers are regular visitors, and we have disabled access and toilets. We love dogs! So much that we even provide biscuits for them – all healthy and locally made, naturally…

Next door, across the courtyard, the EDGEmart is our new farm shop stocking Sussex produce and a huge range of speciality coffees- all freshly roasted on site. Additionally there’s an even bigger range of loose leaf teas. Grab a bag, packed and ready to take home and brew yourself or bring in your own pot to refill and help us save on packaging.

We’ll grind the beans or mix the leaves for you right there and then – you really can’t get fresher than that!

Our Roastery

We have been roasting and blending since 1981 – you’ll find us in our converted Dutch barn across from the EDGE Café.

The Roastery is kept busy supplying our many trade and online customers, and keeps the Edge Café and EDGEmart stocked with the freshest beans possible!

Our state-of-the-art Giesen machine roasts coffee using the traditional drum-roasting technique, whilst being equipped with the latest technology from Cropster to ensure a consistent result and to get the best out of the speciality beans we use – all sourced from farmers and growers we know and trust, many of whom we have personally visited.

It’s open to the public, so you are welcome to visit for a look around and a chat with our friendly, knowledgeable team.

Chris Rendle is our highly trained and enthusiastic Roastmaster – a coffee expert who’s gleaned his expertise from all over the world. He has trained a dedicated team of roasters, all of whom share his vision to bring the best flavours and tastes to the good folks in Sussex and beyond!
