Lynsey Harley Modern Standard Coffee

We care about making great coffee from source to cup. We blend our experience and knowledge of speciality roasting with efficient and innovative production. Great coffee for everyone, that’s the Modern Standard.

One of the few female founded and run coffee business in the UK, Modern Standard was the fusion of speciality coffee passion and commercial coffee experience. After several years of working in the coffee industry, a qualified Q Grader, UK Cup Tasting Champion and World Barista Championship judge, Lynsey recognised a gap in the market for a full solution, speciality coffee roaster. Armed with enthusiasm, coffee knowledge and industry experience, she started Modern Standard Coffee with an aim of raising the quality of coffee across all channels.

By keeping the supply chain as short as possible, working with the World’s leading farmers and sourcing, roasting and packing ourselves, we can offer a transparent speciality coffee at an affordable and accessible price. Great coffee for everyone – that’s the Modern Standard.

In the past 6 years, we’ve grown to a team of 20, with a coffee roastery in Scotland, an office in London, including an experienced servicing division and account management team to support our customers. 

We’re now able to offer speciality coffee, artisan tea, machines, servicing and marketing support becoming the go to partner in speciality coffee.

We’ve come a long way and would love to invite you on the next leg of the journey.
