Premium micro-roastery in the heart of Oxford

Jericho Coffee Traders is a micro-roastery working from the historic neighbourhood of Jericho in Oxford. We'd always been in love with the idea of having our own café, and used to scheme about how we would go about starting the business. Then, in 2009, we found a beautiful three-wheeled Vespa Piaggio Ape for sale on the side of the road, and thought, “that needs a coffee machine on the back of it!” A coffee business was born.

We served coffee on the Magdalen Bridge in Oxford, and later on in the Radcliffe Camera Square. We also began to get involved in farmer’s markets and college balls and events, and to this day spend our weekends making coffee at the East Oxford and South Oxford Farmer’s Markets. We love being such a part of the Oxford community, and could literally spend hours talking about coffee!

Our coffee roastery moved from our location in Jericho April 2017 to Onsey Mead Industrial Estate, we roast there through the week. We source the beans directly from the farms via a coffee trader. As a new business, we're already providing several cafes with wholesale beans, and work closely with their baristas to ensure that they make the perfect brew for their customers. As the roasters we can have a very hands-on approach which we love! Our Vespa is available for weddings, festivals and events. Recent events have included Summer at the Botanic Garden and Harcourt Arboretum, The Oxford Festival of the Arts, the Weird Folk Festival on Hogacre common and various Oxford college balls.

We love talking about all things coffee, and the doors to our roastery are always open. The espresso machine is often on, so come and watch us roast, chat about coffee and try our latest favourites. Our roastery can be found on the Osney Mead Industrial Estate, Unit 2, Roger House . We have a cafe attached opened from 8:30 - 4pm during the week. Come for a cuppa!
