As a not for profit organisation, Edisons Coffee aims to put money and care back into the community with absolutely no compromise on quality. We provide opportunity for local people, and through our training and development programme we bring out the best in people. We are not ‘just another chain brand’ – we’re so much more than that. Our main aim is to reinvent the way people look at and also provide employment opportunities and community development initiatives through innovative and exciting ways – in this instance an aspirational coffee shop chain which adopts an innovative inventive brand message.

Edisons Coffee is a not for profit social enterprise that aims to make a real difference to the town it operates in. Edisons Coffee wants to work towards changing the perception of the entire coffee service sector, and indeed best practice at the heart of it by delivering high quality product with the community at heart. We put maximum effort into what we do as a brand and to the service we deliver because we really believe we can make a difference through intelligent commercial acumen and a trial social awareness. We aim to clean up the somewhat tarnished name of coffee shop providers by combining socially aware solutions with our passion for great tasting innovative blends of coffee.
