Our Story


Grey Seal Coffee Roasters was established in 2013 and is a specailist coffee roastery based in Glandford, a small hamlet in the Glaven Valley in North Norfolk.  We ethically source and freshly roast green coffee beans to sell to the public and the wholesale trade around Norfolk and throughout the UK.

Our wonderful location, on a farmyard just off the coast in North Norfolk, is possibly the most rural setting for a coffee roastery and coffee lab and also, probably, one of the most picturesque.  We love to roast, brew, drink and talk about coffee and the Grey Seal Roastery is perfectly equipped to allow us to indulge our passions and share them with others.  We have coffee houses at BlakeneyWells Next-The Sea and Sheringham.

In 2015 we were awarded a 2 Star Great Taste Award for our To the Point Espresso blend, then a 1 Star Great Taste Award for our Thailand Doi Chaang single origin in 2016.  We also won the EDP Food and Drink Made in Norfolk Award sponsored by Kettle Chips recognising our impact on the Norfolk food and drink scene. 

We are passionate about great coffee.  We talk about coffee and have extensive knowledge of the hospitality, café and coffee industries and enjoy to using this expertise to help others by offering advice and training in improving coffee experiences for others. We are the distributors for Sanremo Espresso Machines in East Anglia so if you are in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire or Essex then do get in touch.  We also work with the leading coffee grinder brands of Mahlkonig and Ditting, amongst others.
