Our Story

Who are we?

We love roasting coffee, and we are proud to roast ours in Bo’ness.  We keep stuff simple, so you can cut through the noise, and choose a coffee you’re gonna love.

Our Beginning

Although the coffee scene has exploded over the last decade in the UK, the quality of beans from some of the popular high street cafes are typically…. not great.  They tend to use either cheap commodity beans and often blend arabica and robusta (robusta being a much cheaper, inferior bean).  Vice Roast was created to give you a choice of some of the best coffees from across the world, whether it’s one of our single origins or blends.

Because we want you to love our coffee, we take time choosing the best beans and only when we fine tune the roast profiles, that we are happy to offer it up to you!  We ALWAYS roast to order, quality check and pack in our hand stamped bags.

Our Vision

We believe that everyone should be drinking great coffee so we’ll continue to roast the ‘specialty’ grade stuff (scoring 80 or more by the SCA – Specialty Coffee Association).

We know that coffee can be a confusing subject to navigate – from bean processing to the different ways to roast, not to mention all the ways to brew it! We’ll make it as simple as possible for you guys to choose a coffee, and hopefully not cause you any confusion.

We only work with suppliers who ethically source coffee on sustainably farmed land, ensuring that farmers receive a fair price for their crop and can produce crops year after year.

We also want to create a community of ‘Vicers’ and get people talking about coffee. If there’s something you want to see us do (or stop doing), get in touch at info@viceroast.com. It’s a two-way street, and we look forward to hearing from you – even if it’s just to say hi!  Also feel free to check out our instagram page
