Exchange Coffee Company

The team leading the operation at Exchange Coffee company share an incredible 135 years roasting experience between them, so no wonder it enjoys a position as one of the North’s most prestigious specialty coffee empires, with a whopping 32 Great Taste Awards.

If it’s riding high now, the beginnings were much more humble, with owner Mark Smith roasting beans in his garden shed 30 years ago. To date, Exchange has three roasting shops, in Clitheroe, Blackburn and Skipton, two coffee bars in Blackburn and Todmorden markets and two coffee vans.

There’s also a thriving wholesale coffee roastery which is housed in a converted 1764 Baptist chapel in Blackburn, where a 1978 Probat GN25 roaster sits at the heart of the operation.

Mark has always been particular about the terroir of his coffee, knowing that geography, climate and geology have a huge impact on the profile and quality of the beans, and his team works closely with green coffee importers to source single estate, Rainforest Alliance and micro-lot coffees. ‘It means we are able to select some amazing coffees of differing varietals, processing and terroir,’ he says. Working alongside Cimbali and Expobar, Exchange is well versed in offering advice to start-up coffee ventures and offers barista training and service back up. But it’s when Mark and his roasting team - Richard, Chris, Jo, Nathan, Lucie and Adam – start talking coffee that the excitement and sense of adventure really shines through, with a passion for coffee as strong as the day Exchange started all those years ago.

      Exchange Coffee Clitheroe, ClitheroeThis atmospheric coffee emporium is spread over three floors, with nostalgia running through all its nooks and crannies, shelves laden with coffees and related ephemera, and the aroma of freshly roasted beans everywhere.

      Exchange Coffee Blackburn, BlackburnFind your way to Fleming Square, a little street just over the road from the cathedral; sniff the air and the smell will lead you straight to one of Exchange Coffee’s three retail roasting outlets.
