A Unique, Hand-Built Roaster

The heart of any coffee roastery is its coffee roasting machine. Our machine was built by hand over the course of the last two years, a project which came to fruition in spring 2021 and has been reliably churning out test roasts ever since.

Using a custom built roasting machine gives us a level of flexibility unmatched by many commercial machines. Every parameter is fine-tuneable, allowing us to roast in a way which showcases each coffee's delicious flavours.

Quality focus

We are working with leading green coffee importers to source incredibly high-quality green coffee, including some unusual and experimentally processed micro-lots. Before making it into our roaster, we taste dozens of green coffee samples from Africa and South and Central America, selecting only the juiciest, most vibrant lots. 

Once chosen, each coffee is then test roasted and tasted multiple times to determine the optimum roast profile to showcase its unique flavours. 

All our packaging will be 100% plastic free, recyclable and/or home compostable.

About Spaceboy

Spaceboy was founded by award-winning coffee roaster Finn Mclean.

Finn became infatuated with speciality coffee during trips to New Zealand and the West Coast of America in 2014. 

A chemist by training, he saw potential in manipulating the chemical reactions which occur during coffee roasting, in order to modulate the flavour profiles of coffees.

Over the last 8 years, Finn has worked at some of the most well-renowned coffee roasteries in the UK, and roasted award-winning coffee.

Your Pledge

The roastery is running and ready to go - we just need to buy inventory.

Your money will be used to buy the tastiest green coffee we can source, as well as packaging.

Our coffee packaging will be bio-based, and 100% home compostable- you can even stick them in the composter in your own garden! Our mailer packaging will be 100% plastic free and home recyclable.

To help us get started, simply select a reward from the list. Once you've chosen your reward, (for example 6 bags of Spaceboy Coffee) you can select the frequency at which you'd like to receive the coffee on the following page (e.g one bag per week, one bag every other week etc). 

In return we promise to send you a selection of awesome coffees with a cup score of at least 86+ points. 

You can expect to receive your first bag of coffee at the end of August.

Thank you for your support!
