Our Story

A little about us

We are a family owned boutique tea and coffee merchant. Rosie & Java, nestles in the charming lanes of Richmond-upon-Thames and offers everything needed to experience the very best tea and coffee.

Run by long time tea-enthusiast and barista trained Chris and his wife Alice, along with their son Maximus and daughter Freya. 

Chris, a veteran of the British Army and Alice, a former primary school teacher, decided to mix things up and turn their passion of tea and coffee into their profession. They are delighted to assist you in discovering what a few leaves and beans can become.

We wouldn't be anywhere without our team, past and present. Special thanks to Heather, Naeimeh, Elizabeth, Karen and Maria. 

Every great adventure starts with the first steep.
