Primo Coffee and Tea
Primo was born on Christmas Eve 2015. A conversation around the kitchen table turned to business and before we knew it we were diving in to the world of coffee. It was an alignment of talents; Peter with his impeccable taste, Robert with his commercial background and James (Peter’s twin by-the-way) with his wealth of experience in the coffee industry.
We took the plunge and Primo was created early 2016. We were offered an old cattle shed on a farm near Manningtree as a base. It was a wreck and we spent the following weeks and months cleaning, mending and rebuilding. With the cobwebs and dust behind us, our roastery was born and we set about roasting and supplying the best possible coffee and the finest loose leaf tea. We are proud to call it home.
It’s been a journey; long days and late nights; some mighty arguments and lots of laughs later we are producing some mighty fine coffee.
We’ve shared this story with you because honesty and openness are fundamental to our business, we just need you to try it now. We believe in it – our customers love it – we hope you will too.
