Fresh Coffee, Hand Roasted Daily
Recent Beans is on a Mission
We believe coffee is a fresh product and should be treated like one.
Coffee beans taste good for two months after roasting but in the first two weeks a great coffee tastes magical. Some store bought beans can spend months or years on a shelf before being consumed.
We roast our beans to order. Not the week before, not the day before, when you order.
Our coffee is roasted the morning after we receive your order and posted that afternoon, that's what sets us apart. Give us a go, change your coffee game.
Roasted in Yorkshire
Recent Beans roasters are based at the Queens Mill, Castleford in West Yorkshire.
Sitting on the banks of the River Aire, Queen's Mill (also known as Allinson's Mill) was once thought to be the largest stone grinding mill in the world.
According to the West Yorkshire Archaeological Society there has been a working mill by the river Aire as far back as Roman times. During medieval times the mills were used mainly for milling wheat, just as the Queen's Mill continues to do.
Now Queen's Mill is looked after by the Castleford Heritage Trust. Visitors are invited to explore the mill during special open days throughout the year where members from the trust will be on hand to share the history of the mill and answer any questions.
