Many people like coffee – but Alastair Moodie has a lifelong passion for it that he wants to share.
His company, Home Ground Coffee Ltd, which he runs with his wife Sophie, is a local, family firm, based in Cardross, which means, he says, that it can supply the best, ethically-sourced coffee fresh from the roaster. More than that, he’ll roast, grind and package it to order.
“We handle each roast individually, because that’s the only way to get the best out of the different types of beans,” he says. Home Ground is selling its coffee through local outlets as well as online. Alastair says he’s also keen to develop personal relationships with delicatessens, coffee shops and individual customers who have particular requirements.
“Customers can decide for themselves how they want it. They can choose single-origin coffee or we can discuss with them exactly how they would like it blended," he says. "What we’re offering essentially is bespoke coffee, made the way the customer wants.”
Home Ground Coffee Ltd is a family-run coffee roasters based in Cardross in the West Coast of Scotland.
We offer specially selected single-origin coffees and carefully balanced blends, freshly roasted to order by Alastair, our master roaster.
Traceability, sustainability and a fair deal for farmers are what we are all about.
We only choose coffees that are traceable, which means we know where they came from and can be confident that the farmers who grow the beans receive a fair price, the farming methods used are sustainable and the coffee is top quality. We are always happy to answer any questions about a particular coffee or our ethics in general.
