Crosby Coffee was born from an obsession for coffee by founder, Jack Foster. Jack travelled a lot with his previous work and used to enjoy finding solace in coffee shops off the beaten track. Some sips later and he was hooked and he became fascinated with the history and science of coffee whilst simultaneously realising there was space for a roaster in a little town called Crosby.
For nearly a year the business was ran from his Mum’s living room, using tiny American style roasters and taking days off from work to fulfill orders. A reminder of the crazy and beautiful scenarios you’ll find yourself in when fulfilling a dream that you’ll look back on with fond memories.
Crosby Coffee are now an established roastery and coffee shop, proud to roast delicious coffee and deliver it to your home, as well as supply independent coffee shops and restaurants who are passionate about serving quality coffee to their customers.
The company is now co-owned and ran by Jack and school friend Mark Slinger. Mark joined the business in 2017 and has helped develop the business into what it is today. The pair share a passion for all things coffee and are excited to see what the future holds for them as Crosby Coffee continues to grow.
The team at Crosby Coffee recently won 'Favourite Place to Shop' (2017) and 'Producer of the Year' (2016) at the Liverpool Food & Drinks Festival Awards which shows just how far the business has come in such a short time.
Jack was shortlisted as 'Young Business Person of the Year' in The Echo Regional Business Awards and shortlisted for 'Young Entrepreneur of the Year' in The Natwest Great British Entrepreneur Awards both of which were in 2017. Crosby Coffee have also featured in all three editions of the Northern Independent Coffee Guide as well as featuring in The Liverpool Cookbook.
