Coffee

HEJ Where have you bean all my life??

Why did the hipster burn his tongue?
He sipped his macchiato before it was cool…

(Sorry, we couldn’t resist a coffee pun…)

The third wave coffee movement did away with the notion that coffee is a mere commodity and started to demand a certain reverence, the sort that one might pay to a fine wine or a gourmet cheese. Gone are the days of large chain branded, over-extracted espresso topped with a sorry splodge of burnt milk foam and thank goodness for that! Londoners are fast becoming coffee savvy critics and our beloved city has swiftly become the epicentre of a coffee revolution. The coffee scene is about so much more than coffee itself, folks are looking for coffee experiences. Hej Coffee was born through a couple of coffee-mavericks, Jeremy Knight and Mathew Keech, a pair who had a love of the intricate process from harvesting a bean to the final flourish of a Rosetta Tulip on your latte. They together took their burning desire to bring some personality back to the coffee market and created Hej. Hej are all about small batch roasting as, like most things, coffee tastes better when it’s fresh. This is also why the beans are roasted just down the road in Bermondsey near their flagship café, meaning that the magic happens a mere stone’s throw away before it comes anywhere near a grinder or tamper, enough for the most discerning coffee snob to be satisfied. This is why for us at Restaurant Associates it was a no-brainer to become the exclusive partner of Hej Coffee, in order to bring exciting new standards of coffee to our clients and customers.


“We are very proud to be chosen to partner with Restaurant Associates, with their passion for food and service and our love of coffee it’s a match made in heaven. Together we are breaking down barriers and making specialty coffee easily accessible and hopefully a fun experience for everyone involved. We work hard to empower our baristas with the skills and knowledge to deliver a fantastic coffee experience no matter what the occasion”
Mathew Keech, CCO of Hej Coffee (Chief Coffee Officer)


“Hej just have that special something that our clients fall in love with and we’re so proud to showcase their fantastic work in our clients’ sites. Jeremy and Matthew really get what we’re about at RA and work seamlessly with our operations teams. It’s obvious with Hej that making beautiful coffee is an art form, not something they leave to chance. We train all our baristas at the Hej Barista School in Bermondsey Square where they learn about everything from the roasting process, to cupping coffee and how to create the perfect latte art.”
James Boyle, MD of Restaurant Associates.


We couldn’t be more excited about working with Hej and are looking forward to what the future holds together.
