Break Fluid Coffee Co was born from a need for a non-intimidating speciality coffee – consistent in flavour and easy to brew. Its founders, Chris (a coffee nut and ex-professional photographer) and Ant (a super-talented graphic designer and expert dog wrangler) have a shared passion for the outdoors: in Break Fluid they have created a product that keeps them fuelled on the go, whether that be at their Frome HQ, or running and cycling further afield.
The brand’s association with exploration is evident through their choice of ambassadors. A browse through their website reveals a plethora of inspirational individuals flying the Break Fluid flag across the country, all of whom share a passion for adventure and a staunch commitment to their discipline.
The product itself comes from speciality coffee importers around the world, with bean selection governed by ethics as well as exceptional taste. The Kayon single origin stocked by IO comes from the Guji area of southern Ethiopia, and is the perfect balance of fruity and floral flavours.
A look into the future reveals some exciting moves for the brand. Their Frome HQ will soon house a trade counter and a coffee bar – as well as playing host to a number of summer meetups and rideouts. There are also whispers of a brick and mortar presence, and they’re set to be curing hangovers on the festival circuit this summer – look out for them at the Isle of Wight festival, WOMAD, End of the Road and The Good Life Experience.
