About Qualitasse Coffee Roasters

Coffee Roaster and Coffee Equipment Supplier

Qualitasse was founded in 1982 where it started out as one man, Brian Layton, selling filter coffee machines and coffee from the boot of his car. Fast forward and the business soon had premises (circa 1985), then larger premises (circa 1992), then a water cooler business was established (maybe 1998?) and at the same time espresso machines where being supplied and maintained alongside bean-to-cup machines, then the first coffee roaster was installed (probably around 2005), then a takeaway cup making machine started producing compostable takeaway cups (definitely 2022) ! Below we give an in-depth profile of one of our main specialities – coffee roasting – for which we are multiple award winners!
