Grape Harvest at Trotton Estate Vineyard

Over the last decade, the production of English wines has has risen sharply. The County of West Sussex is at the heart of this revolution partly due to the ‘green sand ‘ soil and its favourable south facing slopes. My knowledge of wine is limited to the consumption stage but one man who has a […]

Abandoned Cars

“A fixture now amongst the trees
Fighting a rusting disease
Fauna; thick ,as high as your knees
Rats established wherever they please
Detritus debris fueling irritability
Tyres collapsed, pressure fatigue.”

Moonroast Coffee

Moonroast High res-18

The Uk is seeing a renaissance of small-scale producers setting up shop in their own homes, selling to consumers who increasingly want to buy local. One such example is Francis Bradshaw, who in 2014 started Moonroast, roasting coffee in a barn in rural Hampshire. This career move comes as no surprise as the Bradshaws have a century long tradition in the coffee and tea trade. In the 1800’s Richard Goodwin Bradshaw joined London’s principal tea brokers ‘Wilson Smithetts’ where he became an expert in trading and blending tea from Ceylon. Expertise in coffee has continued through genenerations of Bradshaws and Francis’ father, Haydon, is one of Britain’s top coffee tasters.

At his boutique artisan roastery Francis slow-roasts a range of premium coffees in small batches, by hand, using beans ethically sourced. Moonroast has won a host of ‘Great Taste Awards’ and has his coffees stocked in Selfridges Foodhall and a host of cafes, gastro pubs, deli’s, farm shops and restaurants.
