About Jericho Coffee Traders
We've always been in love with the idea of having our own coffee business; often scheming about how we would start one up.
The opportunity came in 2009 when we saw a beautiful Vespa 'tuk-tuk' for sale at the side of the road, and both thought: "That needs a coffee machine on the back of it!". So we became the proud new owners of a 49cc Italian trike! And Jericho Coffee Traders was born...
Fast forward to today, and we've added three premises in Oxford - our High Street espresso bar, Cafe at the Castle, and our Cafe & Roastery - all serving delicious espresso and filter coffees accompanied by locally made pastries and cakes.
We also have a thriving online coffee subscription business, ranked 3rd in the Lightning 50 Top UK eCommerce companies, as well as a coffee school where we hold regular courses for novices and experts to share our knowledge and love of coffee.
As our business has grown, we've seen many changes, made new friends, and learned much on our journey to this point. But we continue to hold true to our commitment to sourcing ethical speciality coffee and supporting coffee farms, charities, and cooperatives worldwide.
None of this would have been possible without our fantastic, hard-working team and our loyal customers to whom we owe our success.
And what of our beloved bright turquoise tuk-tuk? We still use it for our local events - it seems to have grown quite a loyal following in its own right!
