Fairtrade Organic Coffee | Upcycled Hessian Homewares | Homemade Hessian Framed Pictures
The Burlap and Bean Company is a small family run business which operates from the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire.
It all began in 2015 when, at the time, coffee was being roasted and sold on the weekdays, and small homeware gifts were being sold in local market places around the county on the weekends. The gifts market had no connection to the coffee business and very few of the gifts had any relation to coffee.
Then on one cold market morning, whilst tucking into a delicious warm mug of Blend 71, we realised that the two would merge really well together and from that moment on, The Burlap and Bean Company was formed.
Since the formation, our market has had a strong coffee focus, with different blends and accessories being sold, as well as hessian products which recylce unused coffee sacks. This definitive theme has been really popular with customers as they get to experience both the coffee and the hessian products. To experience our market yourself, make sure you keep your eye out for updates on our Facebook page which can be accessed from the home page.
As the market's reputation grew, and the company's name became more common place, our products started to make their way into local shops. Now our products are available from Labels Shopping in Ross-on-Wye, MOOT in Coleford, Toast in Tutshill, Forest Bumps in Cinderford, Casa Interiors in Newnham, Fairview garden centre in Churcham, The Malt House Emporium Stroud and Lavender Blue Florist, Mitcheldean. This website was also setup following constant customer requests from locals and those who do not live nearby.
So what has been the main contributing factor to our success? Well that has to be our wonderful products which we shall now learn more about...
All of our hessian homeware products are 'upcycled' in our small facility in the Forest of Dean. Using our antique Singer sewing machine, we manage to create high quality rustic homeware products which look great in any home.
Our popular hessian framed pictures have been individually hand stencilled or printed and placed within wooden frames. These wooden frames are available in black or white and make perfect gifts for any special occasion.
At The Burlap and Bean Company we have a strong interest in sustainable living. We are committed to doing as much to help the environment as we can in these challenging times. That is why we only use old hessian coffee sacks in our products. All of the hessian is recycled to give authentic products with individual stories and smells.
For years we have refined and perfected our recipes in order to create the best tasting coffee around. Our practiced and proved roasting methods have never let us down with many happy returning customers.
We have five different South American blends available to you depending on what you prefer. These range from the usual espresso, Colombian, and Guatemalan tastes, to our own unique blends, 16 and 71. We also provide our coffee in bean, esspresso, cafetiere, and filter grinds to cater for all your needs.
We have a strong ethical focus and strive to deliver the best possible quality to customers. That is why all of our coffee blends are 100% organic, and are fairtrade and soil association approved.
All of our coffees have also been taste tested by professionals with detailed descriptions available for each coffee in the product listing.
