Island Roasted

The IW Espresso Co. is the Islands leading supplier of commercial espresso machines, hand roasted artisan coffee, barista training and coffee ancillaries. This family business was born from a lack of support for the specialty coffee industry when they started out in event catering nearly 20 years ago. So they formed The IW Espresso Co., initially importing Astoria Coffee machines and Bristot coffee from Italy. Training then became part of their services and in 2006 they opened Caffe Isola in Newport as a flagship Artisan Café. “That’s when we started to explore roasting coffee” explains Dan, after much research, training and practice their first shop roaster went into production at Caffe Isola in 2010. Since then demand for their “Island Roasted” artisan coffee has grown considerably. They have now moved to much larger premises and are one of the Island’s premiers cafés.
