Hayman - Finest World Coffee

About Us

Our Story and Mission

Hayman's founders first met due to their passion for rare and exotic coffee. After accumulating many years of hands on experience in the coffee sector and spending thousands of hours studying all coffee-related disciplines, they decided to get together in order to bring you something truly new and unique in the coffee world.

Hayman was born in 2014 in London, UK, and brings you the world's best and freshest specialty coffees, including such legends as Jamaican Blue Mountain coffeeHawaii Kona coffeePanama Geisha coffee and Cup of Excellence® award-winning Brazilian coffee. All of these are Arabica coffee, which is widely considered the best coffee species.

Hayman is the first to offer you: 

  • An impressive menu of specialty coffee (also called speciality coffee) and absolutely nothing else short of this gold standard;
  • Fresh roasted coffee on the day it is shipped to you to ensure maximum freshness;
  • The best coffee as unroasted green coffee bean (i.e. unroasted coffee beans for use with your own coffee roaster), roasted whole coffee bean, roasted ground coffee, and Nespresso compatible coffee pods *, so that you can immediately start this unforgettable experience, while keeping your preferred coffee brewing method.

If you invest in the best coffee, it is critical that it is freshly roasted. Contrary to other products such as red wine, coffee starts losing its flavor and aroma once it is roasted, namely through the action of oxygen, moisture and light. This loss of aroma and flavor over time takes place even if the coffee is adequately protected. This is the reason why fresh roasted coffee is so important to Hayman. 

Hayman ships fresh roasted coffee to customers in almost 100 countries and territories worldwide, offering free standard shipping to many of these locations.

We provide our customers highly attentive care before and after the purchase, because an exceptional coffee is only part of the Hayman experience. Call our coffee experts at +44 20 3239 8049 or email us at customercare@haymancoffee.com , we are always happy to assist you.

The environment is another cornerstone of our vision. Hayman actively contributes to environmental protection by using only recyclable packaging and pods.

As a testament to the unmatched quality of our Arabica coffee, Harrods and Selfridges, the high-end department stores in London, are Hayman's exclusive retailers in the UK. 

Hayman is a member of the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA), the global authority in coffee excellence.

Third Wave Coffee

Hayman is a well-known and very successful supporter of the Third Wave Coffee, a term created in 2002 to describe a large scale movement with the objective of offering excellent quality Arabica coffee, which sees coffee as a delicate artisan good, such as wine, and not as a mass production beverage.

The Third Wave Coffee movement defends that coffee drinkers should always be served good and fresh coffee, in order to be able to distinguish and appreciate all of its nuances in terms of flavor, aroma, varietal and growing region.

For this challenging goal to be achieved, numerous advances in coffee tree growing, harvesting, and processing were needed. Honest partnerships among coffee growers, traders, and roasters had to be established, so that everyone could be on the same page and thus mutually benefit from moving in the direction of top quality coffee, which is very positive news for coffee consumers.

Specialty Coffee

The expression specialty coffee (also called speciality coffee), was originally used in 1974. Specialty coffee is a completely different concept from gourmet coffee or premium coffee, because out of these terms only specialty coffee has very clearly defined quality standards.

If we look at the definition of specialty coffee by the Specialty Coffee Association, we will see that a given coffee needs to score at least 80 points on a 100-point scale in order to be considered specialty coffeeArabica coffee which scores 80 points or above have an impressive aroma and flavor, and a minimum amount of defects.

In addition to offering only specialty coffee, we are proud to say that all our Arabica coffee is single origin, meaning that we never blend coffees from different origins (either countries or farms), species, or varietals. This helps us ensure full traceability for each and every precious coffee bean.
