Who are Big Dog?
We’re doing this differently.
Our backgrounds have brought us together to provide fresh industry, new opportunity and education through our passion for coffee.
Its our mission to conserve the environment, provide sustainable economic development and reduce our planets carbon footprint.
Our work extends beyond our community. We're working for a better future.
The Philosophical bit
A story of communities across the world, connected by coffee. We are specialty in nature, cohesive in message. Our specialty coffee roastery is built upon a producer based philosophy. The story of the farmer, the journey of their beans and understanding their purpose. Big Dog commits to continuously acknowledge and communicate the story of specialty coffee across all communities.
How we Roast
We are independent, Welsh roasters and we intend to understand our producer's purpose which provides complete insight into how our coffee should be cared for during the roasting process. It's our desire to emulate the superior diligence executed by the producer during the harvest, through our roasted coffee.
Where you can find us
The roastery is located on the historic site of the Ebbw Vale steelworks. Ebbw Vale is a town at the head of the valley formed by the Ebbw Fawr tributary. The town is the largest in the Blaenau Gwent county with a population of 33,000. Ebbw Vale earns its historic status through iron and steel manufacturing.
