Born from a shared passion for things fast, stylish and tasty came the realisation of Volcano Coffee Works!

Kurt and Olaf began their friendship in their late teens, dabbling in the budding independent café revolution in the late 80s New Zealand landscape. Both were inspired by design, function, great food and an obsession for fantastic coffee.

The quest for a decent coffee resumed when the boys met up in London in the early 90s when Kurt was working as a chef and Olaf an international war correspondent cameraman. By the 'naughties, Kurt's attention turned from cuisine to boutique coffee roasting, making him one of the pioneers of the speciality roasting scene we see flourishing in London today. In 2010 the boys got hold of a bit of roasting kit, some old and some new, sourced some great specialty high mountain beans and started roasting them (…and tasting them…and roasting them…and roasting and tasting!).

Now together we produce unique, fresh, high quality, magnificent coffee to satisfy our obsession … Oh, and yours too if you'd like. It's the kind of world we want to live in!
