Lincoln & York installs UK’s largest coffee roaster

Leading UK coffee roasting company, Lincoln & York, has made history this month by installing the UK’s largest coffee roaster at its North Lincolnshire HQ. The new 600 kilo Brambati drum roaster is now in operation, roasting to a consistently high quality.

The new addition to Lincoln & York’s family of roasters has almost doubled capacity, paving the way for further growth.

Not only are the team celebrating the arrival of this magnificent piece of equipment unique amongst UK firms, but Lincoln & York has also just opened the doors to its own contingency coffee roastery. This fully equipped, standalone building is on the same site as the main factory.

As part of the development, roasting and packing equipment has been moved across from the existing Lincoln & York factory to fully replicate its production capabilities and make room for the 600 kilo roaster.

In the event that the smooth running of the existing roastery is affected, the contingency facility, which runs on an independent power supply, will allow the team to fulfil orders without disruption.

The new facility also includes additional office space as Lincoln & York makes room for new recruits.

James Sweeting, Managing Director of Lincoln & York said of the developments, says: “Our customer base has massively diversified over the last five years and our new roaster and contingency roastery are just two of the ways we are responding to this and preparing for future growth.

“We work with a range of different sized businesses across the out of home, foodservice, wholesale, vending and specialist retail markets. This new roaster will allow us to fulfil high volume orders for our largest national and international customers, increasing capacity across our other roasting equipment.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be pushing the start button on this piece of equipment and opening our second coffee roastery in our 20th year. Having our own contingency operation has always been our ambition and to now be able to offer our customers a degree of reliability that no other UK roaster can is an attribute we are very proud of. Guided tours are available on request, of course.”
