Established in 1893, Johnson Brothers (Belfast) Limited first sold coffee in Ireland in 1910. Three years later the family began roasting coffee in Belfast for supply into the foodservice & grocery sectors. The basic principle was founded on quality, indeed, in 1916 Robert Johnson said "It is our responsibility as a roaster to father the coffee to the cup". This driving passion remains core to the current fourth generation Johnson family who today roast 100% high grown arabica coffees from around the globe, in a modern roastery 8 miles from Belfast.

Coffees are supplied in two pack sizes under the Johnsons Coffee (4blends) and Bellagio brands for retail grocery, plus a host of pre ground and whole bean pack sizes for the foodservice sector where single origin estate coffees are also sold.

Private label roasting is provided including full branded packaging (volume dependant).
