Own or run a hospitality venue in southeast England? Looking for a show-stopping seasonal espresso for your menu? Want to offer a crowd-pleasing own-label tea blend?

Since 1981, Edgcumbes has been supplying premium coffees and teas to caterers from independent outlets to prestige hotel chains in Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, London and beyond. You may be interested in purchasing tea & coffee wholesale if you own or manage one of the following:

  • Café / Coffee shop / Tea room

  • Hairdressers / Beauty Salon

We offer order top grade speciality coffees, loose-leaf teas, and all the bits you need. All our coffees are freshly hand-roasted to order, and we blend a wide range of loose-leaf teas on site. Many of our unique coffees and tea blends have won awards, so you can be sure your customers will love them.

We’ll advise on bestsellers, help you devise a menu, plan your equipment needs and we can even develop a unique blend, just for you. We also provide specialist training to upskill your team to deliver the perfect drink every time.

We’re a one-stop shop for everything coffee and tea related. Our friendly and responsive team will assist you every step of the way – after all, you have a business to run! In case you’re wondering, yes, we provide installation, plumbing, ongoing maintenance and after-sales support as well.

With decades of experience and knowledge (including what we’ve learned by running our own cafés), we understand your market, are happy to share our knowledge, and are always on hand to help.

Why not give us a call for an informal chat? To help make your decision, you’re welcome to visit us at the Roastery in West Sussex, where you’ll see first-hand how we work, taste-test our coffees and teas, and take a look at some of the equipment we supply. Our busy and thriving EDGE café is open 7 days a week, and you can tour the Roastery too. We look forward to meeting you soon.

Want to improve barista skills for you and your team? Need to learn how to get the best out of your coffee-making machine?

As coffee and tea experts for decades, you can draw on our skills to improve yours. We are BSA certified and provide training and advice as well as City and Guilds accredited courses. Whatever expertise you’d like to develop or learn, we’ll design a bespoke training course to give you the tricks of the trade. Your team will be inspired with inside knowledge and confidence to provide delicious drinks, every time.

You can hold your training session at our Sussex Roastery, or we can come to you, whichever you prefer.

Want to book an engineer service visit? Time to change the water filter? Coffee grinder needs tweaking?

We don’t abandon you when you choose to work with us. We are here to help you and your team to deliver great drinks, time after time. Why? Because we genuinely care about your success.

Our aftersales service is highly valued by our trade customers. We know, because we’ve been supporting some of them since the business began in 1981!

So, if you have any issues, just give us a call. We’re available for ongoing support, backup and troubleshooting, whenever you need us.

It’s no longer acceptable to offer stale, indifferent coffees and teas. Consumers are more aware of the products they are purchasing and have the right to know where they come from. That means products have to be fresh, locally sourced, and with proven provenance. What’s more, we’re in what is now termed ‘the experience economy’, so you have to provide a unique experience that can’t be replicated elsewhere.

Offering freshly roasted coffee and loose-leaf tea can transform your business. When customers try a cup of beautifully crafted freshly roasted coffee or proper loose-leaf tea, they are sure to come back for more! We know this because our site is in the middle of nowhere, yet people come back time and again because they know they’ll be delighted time and time again!

Whether you’re opening a new outlet or want to upgrade your current offer, the experts at Edgcumbes will help improve your set up. We will give you key tips and advice to help you avoid costly mistakes and get ahead of the competition!

Because we own a café ourselves, we understand the hurdles and challenges that any new site faces. Why not draw on our experience to help you make informed choices?

What’s more, we have negotiated great trade discounts on brewing equipment from many different manufacturers. This means you get competitive pricing on many of the products you need.

All the extras...

Remember, as well as freshly roasted coffee, you can order all the barista tools and supplies you need PLUS a wide range of products to support your café, including loose-leaf teas, teabags (but only the premium quality kind), luxury hot chocolate, Le Routin syrups, as well as teapots, compostable paper cups and more, much more.
