Entrepreneurial duo launch Liverpool Coffee

A NEW, locally-roasted coffee, named Liverpool Coffee, has  launched.

Created by Mike Baugh and Merseyside-born Jerry Canady, Liverpool Coffee offers a signature bean, which consistently receives amazing high scores from The Coffee Association.

Having initiated the idea for the brand, influenced by the city and its culture, over four years ago, the business duo has spent their time since bringing their vision to life.

Mike said: “Liverpool is known for a lot of amazing things, and perhaps one of the most prominent associations with Scousers is friendliness. Those who’ve lived in Liverpool, even for a short time, often comment on how much it feels like ‘home’ and we wanted to take this feeling and serve it up in a warm cup of coffee – a true taste of the city. Jerry was born and raised here in Merseyside, so it was important to us that our coffee reflected our heritage and all of our beans are roasted locally, right here in Liverpool.

Jerry added: “It’s so rewarding for us to be able to hold our product in our hands, especially as the concept has been ‘brewing’ for quite some time. The last 18 months have been difficult but we used this as an opportunity to put our ideas into action behind the scenes and we’re so grateful that we’ve been able to come out of it all with a new business to our names. The launch is also so timely as we start to see the UK reopen and people are meeting for their coffee catch-ups once more.”
