About Jay

Hi, I’m Jay…

I’m a coffee lover and fan of refreshing teas.

For me, it’s all about quality, taste and community.

My mission is to help coffee lovers and tea fans enjoy the finest flavours from around the world – at an affordable price.

I spend endless hours researching and searching for premium quality products which deliver on taste, provenance and a fair deal for farmers.

If they do not meet the standard, they do not go in my online store.

I want to give people a proper coffee and authentic tea experience. I encourage you to explore, find your favourite(s) and try something new.

This is also about community.

Whether it’s in a café or coffee house, at home or at the office, having a brew or a cuppa means more than just a drink.

It’s time for you. It’s a moment to relax. It’s a shared conversation. It’s time with family, friends or work colleagues. It brings people together. It can be a talking point. It’s often a shared experience.

It’s that sense of community I want to build.

Get more people enjoying proper coffee and authentic teas. Get more people trying something new – and talking about it. Get more people sharing their experiences, tips and ideas around coffee and tea.

It’s one reason I set up a Facebook Community.

It’s a way for the coffee lover or tea fan to be part of something more than a consumer.

Somewhere for the enthusiast, the connoisseur, the traditionalist, the trendy, the cool, the calm, the collected, the opinionated, the worker and the homemaker to start a conversation.

I’m not an aficionado. I’m simply a coffee lover and fan of fine, refreshing teas. I know what I like (and what I don’t like). Maybe you’re the same.

My journey selling premium coffees and teas began when I left my corporate career in the retail sector and decided to run my own business.

A visit to a coffee roasting factory was the turning point. I was shown how the coffee came in. How different roasts were done. The packaging. The tasting. The whole works. It was fascinating. It was amazing. From that point, I was hooked.

I knew I wanted to be a coffee supplier. Little did I realise what an education I would have to go through.

Running a company was no problem at all. I had 30 years in retail behind me. Senior Management roles with some of the most successful international brands.

The learning curve was all about the products. It started with coffee, followed swiftly after by tea (as I also love this to drink, especially the fruit and herbal ones).

There was research. Finding a supplier. Selecting the right products. Packaging. Labelling. Regulations. Marketing. Networking. The lot. There were some pretty long days. And I made some mistakes along the way.

I’m a retailer by nature. A coffee lover by heart. (I also love tea – so I added it to the party).

I want to make it easy for people to enjoy their experience. To deliver the highest quality, great taste and fabulous flavours right to their door.

Whether you love coffee, love tea or love both – JayandCo is here to serve.

We are based in London, and deliver across the UK.

We welcome your feedback so we get more things right more often.

You can start your own journey with coffee here or with tea here.

Enjoy the experience.

Jay
