About us

Works Coffee Roasters

Welcome to the Works Coffee Roasters site.                         

We are a husband and wife team, currently based at 160 Cavehill road, north Belfast, and we simply love all things coffee!

Our coffee shop is intimate with a relaxed and local vibe.  We have a few indoor seats, but we are blessed with the addition of an outdoor space, that sits facing the beautiful and famous Cavehill.  We offer a great range of whole bean and ground coffee bags in the shop, along with a range of handy home brewing essentials.
The shop opens Tuesday to Friday 8.30am - 4.30pm and 9am - 3pm Saturday and Sundays. 

Our interest in coffee roasting all began in a little mobile coffee van, based at the Waterworks park in the heart of north Belfast.  
Over the years, our enthusiasm and passion for great coffee has grown and the decision to embark upon roasting our own speciality coffee beans, was a natural one.  We sought out coffee roasting training with the London School of Coffee and it all escalated from there.
Once that was complete, the big roaster was ordered and the rest as they say, is history! 

It was in our local Waterworks park, that our coffee journey began, so it seemed honourable to incorporate the name into our business, thus, Works Coffee Roasters came to be.  Our logo was also created with the park in mind and this has become the heart and soul of our branding.

We currently deliver our coffee UK wide. We are hoping to expand this to all Ireland soon also. 

We hope you enjoy our coffees,
Jim and Claire 

Our Coffee

Works Coffee Roasters believe in buying the best quality green coffee beans and to pay a fair price in return. With the help of Mercanta, based in London, also known as The Coffee Hunters, we are able to access high quality coffees, that are ethical, traceable and sustainable.  
When purchasing our green beans, we particularly like to opt for farms who deploy good agro-ecological methods. We also love to work with farmers who invest in their local communities health, education and where the workers get paid a decent price for their crops.  


We feel privileged to offer some of the highest quality beans from all over the worlds coffee producing regions. We believe that we and other coffee shops, only have our great flat whites, lattes etc, because of the exceptional green beans, that are so carefully and often painstakingly cultivated. For this reason, we want to make our coffee accessible, affordable and hopefully eradicate some of the snobbery that can be associated with coffee.

It is thanks to such excellent coffee farms, that we can offer a beautiful range of speciality single origin coffees, along with well-balanced blends. Our coffees are made to order and roasted in small batches.
