About HR Higgins
The story of H.R. Higgins began when Harold Higgins (Coffee-man) was apprenticed to learn the coffee and tea trades in the early 1900’s. He lived-in with the other apprentices, and before being allowed anywhere near a customer had to become competent in many skills.
So he came to learn about coffee and tea. One of his duties was to clear away the tasting bowls after the accredited tasters had gone to lunch. Before doing this, he and some of his colleagues tasted and discussed the merits of some of the various flavours, this beginning a lifelong interest, with a desire to create a specialist business of his own, a business centered on coffee.
In 1942, Harold started his own company to help supply coffee to the businesses and individuals of London during World War Two. Over the course of the last 75 years and through 3 generations, H.R. Higgins has embarked on an extraordinary world of discovery.
