The BtB Story

The Beyond the Bean story

Now operating in over 40 countries, we’ve come a long way since our humble beginnings of a few small coffee bars in Bristol.

Founded in 1997, before long the home office supplying specialist barista equipment grew into a small warehouse, filled with syrups, smoothies, hot chocolate and frappés – plus all the other great products we are now known and loved for.

And here we are today, still entirely independent; Jem and Nikki still own, and love, the business they built from scratch. They are supported by the fantastic team at our HQ in Bristol and Los Angeles…a team full of knowledge and passion for the Beyond the Bean range.
