Where it all began
Back in 2012 whilst embarking on a family camping trip, battling with the elements and unpacking our French press stocked with coffee, the idea of having cafetière style coffee pre-packed in individual bags was a thing of dreams. The idea of having a great coffee, no mess and the extra space in the backpack was too good an idea not to at least do a little research on it… And while our investigating found that there were companies already out there doing it, none of them were doing it how we envisaged. We wanted luxury — A stylish little coffee bag which produced an amazing cup of coffee. And so, our journey begins.
That little bit of research actually turned into a year of research, brain-storming and countless late nights. But it was all worth it in the end because 2013 saw the launch of The Little Coffee Bag Co at Harvey Nichols. We were thrilled! Subsequently, we appeared on Dragons’ Den and received three competing offers. As you can imagine, yet again, we were over the moon. Our little coffee bags weren’t only on the shelves at Harvey Nichols, but now we had three Dragons offering investment.
And that’s where it all began… with a need for great coffee without the grind!
Over ten years later, what started as a family business is still just that. Over the past five years, the youngest of four children, Jesse, has gradually taken on new roles within the business since starting in sales and marketing, and now manages the company!
