We speak to Murray from The Fresh Coffee Company about his family and business’ move to Devon.
Murray tells us: “My wife and I, and our one-year old daughter Madi moved to Exeter from Surrery last September, bringing the business with us. The Fresh Coffee Company has been in operation in London and Surrey since 2014, steadily building a reputation for providing quality coffee and service to its customer base, including businesses from local delicatessens to national chains and all sorts in between.”
“We’re really excited to partner with The River Café Exe, 2017 winners of the Exeter Living awards and a business that shares our values for quality and sustainability.”
“It all began when my business partner Marcel was working for Harrods, who would only serve Bristot coffee. His passion for coffee and the quality that Bristot delivered created an opportunity and he became the UK distributor for the Italian company, creating The Fresh Coffee Company in order to do so.

SUNDAY is a lifestyle brand with coffee at its core; the ‘Collab’ is the collaboration between likeminded people who enjoy the surf, beach and art vibes of Hossegor. The coffee is roasted on their behalf at Bristot, using premium grade, rainforest alliance certified beans, boasting a beautifully smooth, rounded taste with

“So, we are a small but perfectly formed coffee distributor based in Exeter, supplying high quality coffee with a story to tell. We provide everything from beans to machines, and everything in between. The only thing we don’t do is fresh milk!”
