At Bailies we like to think of our coffee beans as having character.
Their character has been developed at every stage of their journey from the time they spent growing up on the farm, right through to being caringly transported, and lovingly roasted and packed in our roastery, before finally being ground and prepared as a delicious cup of coffee by our customers.
We believe that when someone drinks coffee they should taste evertything that is unique and exciting about the farm on which the beans originated, and how they were grown and processed, rather than tasting any dark ‘roasty’ or ‘oily’ flavours that can result from bad roasting practices.
That’s why we take time and care to search out the best farms in the world and why we don’t try to change the character of our beans when we roast them. We love these little guys, and we want their character to shine through in the cup.
We roast each bean to its own specific roast profile, which ensures you only see their best side. We also stamp each specially valve-sealed bag with a roasted-on date, because handroasted coffee really is 'Better Fresher'.
More About Bailies Coffee Company
Bailies Coffee Company was founded in 1993 by Russell Bailie, who recognised the growing demand for quality freshly roasted and traceable coffee amongst an incresingly knowledgeable consumer base in the UK and Ireland.
The company has since earned industry recognition for its commitment to supplying only the finest, freshest, hand-roast coffee and has supplied espresso beans to two of the last four Irish Barista Champions.
At Bailies we specialise in sourcing single origin and single estate coffees and aim for full traceability to origin, farm and farmer wherever possible. We also source and roast Fair Trade, Rainforest Alliance and Organic coffees, and develop working relationships with ethical suppliers who have strong focus on sustainability for local farmers and growers.
However, roasting coffee is only one part of what we do....
Serving great coffee requires educated staff, who are passionate and proud about the coffee they are serving. We therefore specialise in barista training, and have developed a unique barista training programme which is delivered by the 2004 UK Barista Champion - our In-House and On-Site Barista Trainer. We are passionate about ensuring your staff are trained to consistently serve the best cup of coffee possible.
Serving good coffee requires good machinery, and we supply only the best. We are the only locally approved supplier of the market-leading La Marzocco traditional espresso machinery, and we deliver an unrivalled level of back-up and preventative maintenance service via our specialist coffee machine engineers, who are on call daily.
We also act as a one-stop shop for coffee outlets by supplying everything from cups, lids, syrups, sugars, chocolate etc. which can be included in your weekly delivery. We provide a free optional telephone support service to assist customers with stock-ordering, and are dedicated to delivering the highest quality of product and customer service at all times.
Bailies Coffee Company is now also the UK and Ireland distributor of TANK Kiosks - the award-winning mobile coffee cart technology which has revoltionised the coffee industry in Australia, New Zealand and the US
