Blog » 120 Years of Rombouts Coffee

Passion, Quality & Innovation Since 1896

Rombouts Coffee has been one of the UK's leading suppliers of quality whole bean, roast and ground coffees and coffee pods for over 50 years and can be found in some of the UK's most popular hotels, restaurants, cafes, offices and hair salons.

Things have come a long way since then, but today Rombouts is still a family owned and run business - well renowned for our passion, quality & innovation.

So what's behind our 120 years of success?


We strive to provide the best coffee experience every time you taste a Rombouts coffee. That's why we share our passion and knowledge through a range of barista training courses for our professional customers, giving them the skills and expertise to make and serve a fantastic cup of coffee, time and time again.


Rombouts select only the finest beans then slow roast them using traditional methods to fully develop the best flavours and aromas in the coffees. We work closely with coffee farmers from Laos, Ethiopia and Cuba to name but a few, to ensure they are using the best farming and processing techniques that enhance the quality of the coffees.

The end result? You get a better tasting coffee in every single cup.


The One Cup Filter coffee is the innovation that Rombouts is probably best known; however we are also very proud of our state-of-the-art coffee pod systems, ranging from our Via Nova commercial espresso pod machine, for high volume sites, through to the environmentally friendly Ek'Oh coffee machine which is ideal for hotel bedrooms and meeting rooms. All our coffee pod machines have one thing in common - they make great tasting coffee, quickly, easily and conveniently.

Rombouts has been delighting the palettes of coffee lovers for 120 years in Belgium and for over 50 years in the UK.

Thank you for all your support and we look forward to the next 120 years!
