Gly’s wife, Gisela spent many visits to coffee plantations in her home country of Colombia to help them source the best Arabica Coffee which is now roasted in their coffee barn in the foothills of the Black Mountains near Hay on Wye.

The company is owned and operated by Glyn and his best friend Lloyd Reed. Bringing backgrounds in science, engineering and hospitality together has been a winning combination for the team. Along with their sister Company, Black Mountains Botanicals, they have created the perfect cold brew coffee liqueur and a sample of this along with how to make an espresso martini will be included.
