Who are Flat Cap Coffee Roasting Company? Mark explains...
We are Mark and Alex, a husband-and-wife team who established the Flat Cap Coffee Roasting Company in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside in 2018.
After 23 years’ service, I left the army in 2017 due to complex PTSD. Alex gave up her job working with primary-aged children to help me with my recovery and together we spent lots of time visiting coffee shops.
We found going out for coffee was a bit of an escape from the difficulties that we had to overcome when leaving military life. Many solutions to problems that we were facing were found at the bottom of a coffee cup!
Unfortunately, not all the coffee that we drank tasted great, and we went on a mission to find amazing-tasting coffee. This started by roasting on a mini roaster at home for ourselves, family, and friends. Then, in early 2019, we decided to take the plunge and open our own roastery near to where we live on Salisbury Plain.
At our roastery, we source high-quality, specialty coffee beans from all over the world. We use specialty beans for their high-quality and superior taste. We lovingly roast our beans by hand in small batches on our roaster and then pack them straight away for freshness.
We supply these beans to coffee lovers far and wide, both at home and commercially. We believe in quality and this is at the heart of everything we do.
Finally, we feel that a part of our story has been made possible by the amazing charity, Help for Heroes, who were there for us during our very darkest moments.
As we tackled the obstacles faced by many veterans and people leaving the military, Help for Heroes offered emotional support to our whole family, as well as providing practical support in the form of business courses and access to a business mentor.
We have been fortunate to meet some inspirational people along our journey and, as we move forward, it is our aim to inspire and help others who may be struggling, to raise awareness of the many issues faced by veterans and to give back to the charity in any way that we can.
