Our Story

A little about us

We are a family owned online tea and coffee merchant. Rosie & Java's story was born, nestled in the charming lanes of Richmond-upon-Thames. This service now continues online where we pride ourselves in giving you the knowledge, skills and tools to enjoy and experience the very best tea and coffee.

Run by long time tea-enthusiast and barista trained husband and wife team, Chris and Alice, along with their son Maximus and daughter Freya. (The kids are more the reason/ cause to have a break throughout the working day from time to time. As they definitely do not need it, they will not be enjoying any of our caffeinated products for a very long time!)

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.
