Since opening the small takeaway EDGE Café on the side of Roastery back in 2015 we have seen Edgcumbes grow and develop more than we could have ever imagined from when it was founded back in 1981 on our kitchen table.

Last year, in 2018, we opened our brand new and larger EDGE Café and retail shop – directly opposite the Roastery, along with our Stables course room where we run a range of different events.

To mark this events we invited back our talented friend and filmmaker, Joe Cannon to update and refresh the ‘Edgcumbes Story’.


So this is who we are: Edgcumbes – coffee roasters, tea blenders, wholesalers, retailers, online sellers and educators… We have some simple, but passionately held beliefs;

  • We believe that fresh is best and that buying local is better for everyone
  • That our quality products should be enjoyed by everyone, so we’re open, transparent and accessible; our café is vegan-friendly and welcomes commuters, cyclists, ramblers and dog-walkers alike.
  • Sustainability is essential to us, so being as eco-friendly as possible is part of our everyday job.
  • Education is important and we share our knowledge and expertise to demystify the world of coffee and tea. 

We’ve been described as ‘the very definition of a destination’ venue – somewhere to sit and relax with a book, a lovely hand made drink and a bite to eat, perhaps watch the coffee roasting in action and take a bag of coffee or tea home with you. 

We hope you enjoy the new film -and do pop in on your next trip to the South Coast or when you’re passing to visit nearby Arundel.

Keep an eye out, we’ll shortly be launching a new look website and our collaboration with Arundel Brewery, ‘The Brewhouse Project’ – a brand new coffeehouse and taproom experience opens in Arundel this FRIDAY 12TH APRIL!
