About Black Sheep Coffee...

Founded in 2013 when a group of friends decided to quit their jobs on the same day to "Leave The Herd Behind" and embark on a coffee mission of ridding the world of boring, average-tasting coffee.

Black Sheep Coffee is famous for launching the first 100% specialty grade robusta coffee and the only premium robusta bean on the market (X2 caffeine - get your buzz on!). Our Founders, Gabriel and Eirik, travel to origins throughout the year to source the best beans in the world. In fact, we are one of the few shop retailers that purchase our beans directly at the plantations, looking after the picking, drying, and washing process according to the strictest of guidelines - all in search of the perfect bean.

We have created a unique bar offer of cocktails, wines and craft beers to enjoy at Black Sheep Coffee. When working with us you'll be able to drink as much of our amazing specialty coffee as you like with great discounts on booze and food too.
