Upperlands Coffee Company is a small family business run by Julie and John Henderson. Having developed an addiction to the delights of fresh ground coffee whilst managing a Dairy farm in western Mass in the USA when we returned home to Ireland we found it increasingly difficult to buy fresh ground coffee that we enjoyed drinking. So when we got thoroughly fed-up with what we believed to be fairly bland, acidic and unpleasant ground coffee available in most shops, we set out to make our own. In 2002 we bought an Alpenrost counter top coffee roaster and five bags of green coffee beans. Eventually after much testing on unsuspecting friends and neighbours, all of whom survived the experience, we found several, in our opinion, very drinkable blends of fresh ground coffee. The purchase of a commercial coffee roaster, grinder and vacuum packaging equipment followed and we started to produce and sell our range of fresh roasted coffee blends to the public.
Today Upperlands Coffee Company produce some of the finest coffee blends found in Ireland. Our different blends are available to purchase online. Alternatively you can visit us every Saturday (from 9am to 3pm) and every Sunday (10am to 4pm) in St Georges speciality food market in Belfast.
