About

The Roasting Party is built on the core principles of friendship, passion, and trust.

It’s a formula our Co-Founders Kirby and Wes have stayed loyal to since their first meeting on the courts of their beloved Aussie squash club. And it just so happened that while Kirby and Wes honed their squash skills (and earned a few titles whilst they were at it), the club owner opened an onsite café serving speciality coffee. The rest, so they say, is history.

Eventually, both hung up their rackets and went to work with their good friend and mentor Ed at Sydney based roastery The Little Marionette. It was here they learnt the ropes of a fledgling roastery business.

Fast forward to 2013, and with both Kirby and Wes residing in the UK, the duo felt their adopted home was missing the laid-back neighbourhood coffee culture that they’d become
so fond of in Aus.

A decade on, 55,000 people enjoy a cup of The Roasting Party coffee every week, but the foundation of friendship we’re built on still holds strong.

THE BLENDS

We believe everyone will find their coffee match in one of our three headline blends

The_Party_Front

Fun, vibrant, spontaneous and unapologetically flamboyant, The Party is a celebration of citrus acidity and tropical sweetness on top of a crowd-pleasing chocolate base.

Drake_Front_
Just like its namesake, Drake is smooth, clean, and cuts effortlessly through water. With its sweet, moreish flavour notes of chocolate and hazelnut, Drake leaves a lingering mouthfeel up there with the finest of desserts.
The_Captain_Front_
The original, the way finder, the one that set the course of The Roasting Party ship. The Captain runs deep, with layers of characteristics that mean everyone will take away something different. With flavour notes of blackcurrant, orange and sultana, it’s an introduction to fruit, but a touch of saltiness adds an unconventional edge.

Party at Pavilion

Our OG coffee shop found just off Sloane Square, Party at Pavilion is one of the busiest coffee shops in London and sets the bar for all our other locations.

Here, we’ve been serving up over 1,000 daily cups of coffee to the good people of London since 2017, and we’re honoured to be the coffee destination in our Chelsea neighbourhood.

But don’t be fooled by our laidback style; our success isn’t based on luck.
Our compact space has been carefully engineered to create a continuous customer flow that’s as smooth as our coffee, and all without losing our distinctive personable style. And with an on-site bakery, street side seating and staff who take the time to remember you and your order, it’s community coffee done right.
