Lots of happy customers
Here's what they have to say!
Clumsy Goat has got it right. Value for money, quality and their roasting is second to none in the UK. The flavour and attention to the craft of coffee roasting should be shouted from the mountain tops. Taste, talent and love for the complex bean. Happy customers now.
Took a chance as a new customer. Coffee arrived very quickly and we have found it wonderful. Coffee like it should be, I would highly recommend to anyone considering a purchase. We have tried the espresso and the Brazilian beans and they are the best we have ever tried. Will be getting more.
Just wanted to say, your better than a lot of the others out there, even my most local machine and bean supplier, they wanted £481 upfront (installation & training) plus £19 per kilo of coffee! I’ll be sure to recommend you!
industry specific catering equipment and recipe design
In addition to being experts in coffee, we can also provide help and support for any catering equipment requirements you have. We are approved distributors for a number of manufacturers, including Lincat, Parry, Prodis, Roller Grill and more!
We can supply either bespoke packages or individual items depending on your requirements. We can also provide full training, recipe development and recipe proofing from our experienced chefs, nationwide.
A key benefit of our service is that we can install your coffee machine and kitchen equipment in one visit to minimise disruption to trading, we can also supply everything under one lease agreement (or upfront purchase invoice) to minimise administration costs. Centralised ordering also allows us to provide better pricing and after sales support.
You can make any type of espresso based drink with this machine! The could be Americanos, Cappuccinos or even Caffe Macchiatos!
Our engineers can install within 5 working days at a time that suits you. Delivery without installation can usually be made on the next working day.
You can use pre ground coffee with the machine, however ground coffee looses its flavour much much quicker than whole beans do, so we always recommend grinding the beans yourself for the best coffee experience. We have a wide range of grinders available so be sure to get in touch and our team will recommend the perfect one for your business.
The Contempo is manufactured by Fracino, who have used their experience in the commercial sector to design and build an affordable machine that incorporates lots of high end features. This makes the Contempo extremely powerful and reliable, with a large boiler capacity, brass and steel construction and a beautiful design, the Contempo can produce temperature and pressure at a level that's out of the reach of most machines in this price range. This allows for a much better extraction for a beautiful coffee, every time.
We offer free delivery, installation and basic barista training with all of our machines :)
