About Brew & Bean

We believe that good beer and good coffee should be championed. Everyone thinks they know all there is to know about beer and coffee and we’re here to educate and entertain you with reviews and articles from some of the best brewers and roasters in the UK.

Roaster of the Week

Every month, we choose one roaster from the UK to highlight as our “Roaster of the Week”. All over social media we’ll be highlighting their coffee, looking at different brewing methods, the flavour profiles and more.
