Coffee at Fairfax
Finding the right coffee machine for you is only half the challenge - choosing the right coffee is equally important! We set out to match the coffee with the machine, and to listen to our customers opinions on their tastes. With the speciality coffee market offering so many varieties we have tried to limit the confusion. We are not coffee roasters, so we can buy coffee where we like, to give you the taste you want.
We started out 12 years ago on a hillside in Bologna, a meeting of coffee machine manufacturers and roasters from Italy (where else) and coffee machine dealers from Portugal, the US and the UK. There were no capsules with film stars to promote them. There was espresso tradition from where it all began.
Here was the challenge: The most famous of all roasters Illy, had invented the Pod, espresso coffee wrapped between two sheets of paper to offer a simple and mess free system of producing espresso in a machine designed for the purpose. And Illy had decided to open up the idea of the pod to the world to develop the market.
At this meeting, aided by some excellent Lambrusco, the guys from the UK (that’s us) the US and Portugal decided to form the Espressione company to market Pods. The coffees that went into those pods tasted so good that we decided to sell the beans as well. Over the years the pod market grew in the commercial sector and our Italian coffee bean sales went from strength to strength.
Today we also offer Fairfax Jura Beans roasted for us in the UK, with a recipe especially for the Jura Coffee machines we sell so successfully.
We are shortly going to offer a service of grinding beans and will also be offering a new selection of coffees for filter machines.
So whether it’s beans, pods or ground coffee you are after, we think Fairfax offers what is just right for you.
