“The effort sewn in is a reflection of the affection expressed…” - Guest Blog from Hayling Island Coffee Society

You could say coffee's in our DNA, or at least half of it. Co-founder and Chief Coffee Roaster, Alicia is from El Salvador in Central America which is home to some of the best Arabica coffee in the world. Alicia was fortunate to study at a top coffee school, learning artisanal methods for coffee brewing and milk preparation, which really is the root of our coffee adventure and the heart which stirs up our love of coffee, and desire to share it with others.

"hand roasting by the sea to unlock the flavours farmers worked so hard to develop." 

We've curated a selection of speciality grade coffee from fully traceable routes, hand roasting by the sea to unlock the flavours farmers worked so hard to develop. With just one ingredient, it's so important we can be confident the farmers are growing coffee responsibly, using farming techniques which consider the impact on the local environment.

We make every effort to source coffee beans, through ethically conscious supply chains, where mutual profit, fair pricing and positive social impact are key.


This is why the opportunity to collaborate with our friends at Organic Works fits so well, a shared emphasis on our impact on people and the environment, without neglecting the feeling of the cream on your skin, or for us, the taste of our full flavoured, smooth coffee.


We are so excited to be able to share a cheeky taster of a HICS signature blend with OW fans. We hope each sip will wisp you closer to a dreamy island breeze!


Love & thanks,


Alicia & Sam
