When Tony Speight hand built his first coffee roaster in 2004, whether he knew it or not, he had turned a corner from enthusiastic hobbyist to a seriously passionate artisan coffee roaster.
The timing, it seems, couldn’t have been better for setting down an early foundation of what would become West Cork’s first commercial micro coffee roastery in 2016.
WCC grew organically and Tony’s coffee started to garner the attention of a small number of local food businesses with an appreciation of excellent coffee.
Tony decided to create his specialty coffee roastery at The Forge in Innishannon, West Cork.
WCC were selected for The London Coffee Masters 2017/18 & Tony continues to grow WCC in the specialty coffee market.
