Since we started Jericho Coffee Traders from the back of our beloved Vespa 'tuk-tuk' back in 2012, we never anticipated that our business would grow as much as it has! Or that we'd still have our bright turquoise 'tuk-tuk'...
We now have three cafés in Oxford (one houses our roastery), a thriving coffee subscription business, a coffee school, and thirty fantastic and highly-skilled employees who strive every day to keep our customers happy.
We've also been fortunate to work and grow alongside our fantastic wholesale partners - cafés, restaurants, pubs, and venues - who offer our speciality coffee to their customers.
And they are some of the most iconic Oxford venues! Gee’s, The Old Bank Hotel, The Old Parsonage, G&Ds (incredible ice cream!), James Street Tavern, the Old Bookbinders, TAP Social, and many more. We are massively grateful to have these brilliant customers, and we continue to provide training, advice and support so they can get the best out of our beans.
Now we've added The Royal Albert Hall and Blenheim Palace to our long list of partners!
In late 2022, we were thrilled that Jericho Coffee Traders was selected to be the official coffee supplier of the Royal Albert Hall. This was particularly special to Lizzie and I, and not just because The Royal Albert Hall is such an iconic venue: it’s where we had our first coffee dates together in 2006 after we met at music college right over the road! Of course, the coffee was supplied by Starbucks back then...but the conversation was fantastic! And it led to our marriage and eventually the arrival of our wonderful son, Alfie!
And most recently, a little closer to our Oxford home, we are now providing our speciality coffee to the visitors of Blenheim Palace (yes, even the new adventure playground bit!). Blenheim Palace is a place we've always loved to visit; the sheer beauty and grandeur of its architecture and grounds are breathtaking. Alfie thinks so too!
Who knows where our Jericho Coffee Traders' journey will take us next, but we do know it will be exciting...

About Blenheim Palace
Blenheim Palace is a country house in Woodstock, Oxfordshire and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the seat of the Dukes of Marlborough and was built between 1705 and 1722; it is the only non-royal country house in England to hold the title of palace.
In addition to its rare English Baroque style architecture, Blenheim Palace is notable for its impressive landscaped gardens, credited to Lancelot "Capability" Brown, a renowned English landscape architect, and for being the birthplace of Winston Churchill.
The palace and its gardens are open to the public and are visited by thousands of tourists annually. The site also holds various cultural events, including art exhibitions, concerts, and outdoor theatre performances.
About The Royal Albert Hall
The Royal Albert Hall is an iconic concert hall and cultural landmark situated in South Kensington, London. It was designed by civil engineers Captain Francis Fowke and Major-General Henry Scott.
It was commissioned by Queen Victoria in memory of her husband, Prince Albert, who championed the UK's arts and sciences and opened its doors in 1871.
With a seating capacity of over 5,000, the Royal Albert Hall has hosted a wide array of events, ranging from classical music concerts to rock and pop performances, ballet, opera, and even sporting events. The annual BBC Proms, a classical music festival, is one of the most significant events held at the venue.
