International Coffee Day: our favourite independent coffee businesses

International Coffee Day is just around the corner and at Charlotte Express Packaging; we’re marking the event by celebrating the work of our favourite independent coffee businesses.

Our location of South Wales is home to a large range of independent coffee houses and roasters. Introducing us to the joy of artisan coffee, the journey from bean to cup is a particular passion of these artisan coffee houses and the talented baristas who love coffee as much as we do.

Cardiff is a particularly busy hub of coffee activity, with many independent coffee shops and roasters trading in the area.

We love to visit the following for a brew and to soak up the local culture!

Little Man Coffee Company: sourcing and serving specialty coffee from over 25 roasters, Little Man Coffee Company lets you try your chosen beans with a different brew method.

Kin + Ilk: the café bar serves specialty coffee, loose tea, craft beer and delicious baked goods. One of our absolute favourites!

200 Degrees: located on Cardiff’s Queen Street, 200 Degrees are artisan coffee roasters and proud to be coffee geeks!

Second Cup: from humble beginnings, Second Cup can trace its origins to Canada! It’s one of our favourite finds in Cardiff.

Coaltown: based in West Wales, Coaltown Coffee Roasters are a specialty coffee roastery who focus on sustainable and transparent trade with small farms. They roast delicious coffee that’s full of personality and supply many of Cardiff’s coffee spots.

And if you operate a coffee shop or roastery, our bags for coffee are also available unprinted and in the following options:
