Miles Tea & Coffee Roastery Visit

Tucked away in deepest Somerset is an independent tea blender and coffee roastery named for its founder, a certain Mr. Miles. I recently had the privilege of visiting the offices and factory (Minehead) and coffee roastery (Porlock) where I was shown round the facilities. A mixture of ancient and modern practices and machinery was evident, demonstrating a combination of heritage and a desire to push things forward whilst retaining a proud independent, family-run identity. 

The business started in 1888 and today produces over 3 million teabags a month whilst roasting approximately 5,000 kilograms of coffee.
