Coffee Lovers

Love coffee? We’re passionate about it. You’re always guaranteed a delicious drink from our knowledgeable team of baristas. But it’s not just quality coffee that we serve.

We’ve a wide range of teas, smoothies, pastries, sandwiches, and special tempting treats from local suppliers like 4eyespatisserie and #Brownies to make your day. We know where our products are from and the people behind them, but most importantly know they taste great too.

Our coffee beans come from South America where we ensure our suppliers receive a fair price for their produce. We also actively encourage the use of reusable cups to reduce disposables, and reward our customers for doing so.

2002: Student Led

Sheffield Students’ Union took ownership of Coffee Revolution in 2002 to develop a service that worked to our values, employed students, and put profits back into enhancing the student experience.

Early 2000s: Ethics

Coffee Revolution was one of the first to offer ethically sourced coffee as standard, to ensure the co-operatives and family businesses supplying our beans received a fair price for their coffee.

Mid 2000s: Quality

In a time when high street coffee shops were focused on selling quantity, we focused on quality. We taste tested all our products, and properly trained and educated our baristas, several of which became national barista competition winners.

2010s: Local

We’ve always looked to champion the many great suppliers on our doorstep. Our milk comes fresh from the herd at Our Cow Molly just 6 miles away, sweet treats from local 4eyespatisserie and #Brownies, and our beans are roasted in Sheffield by coffee experts ‘Cafeology’.

2017: Reusable

Today we are leading a #reuasblerevolution. We want to look after our environment by minimising coffee cup waste, so encourage the use of reusable cups and reward our customers that do.
