Building an independent coffee roasting company


We've been big fans of Maude ever since they opened their doors a few years ago, so we thought it was about time we sat down with Matthew Van Elkan to find out more about how he got into starting a micro roasting business, and the challenges that came with it.

This lecture took place on 24th May, 2016at Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen.

Maude Coffee

Maude are a specialty micro coffee roastery in the UK. We strive for quality and excellence in everything that we do. Our mission is to introduce the world’s best quality coffee to the UK market in a considered, experienced and disciplined way.

At our foundation is the principle of paying more and praising farmers for the hard work they put in to making our coffees - some of the best the world has to offer.

With 7 years of experience, our team has touched nearly every corner of the rich tapestry that is the coffee world; whether it be sourcing, brewing, cupping, engineering, or any other area, the chances are we’ve had a part to play in it.
