About Moonroast Coffee
Speciality coffee freshly hand-roasted for you
In 2017 Moonroast moved to smart new premises at Chilton Manor Farm thanks to Project ‘Moonroast Coffee Development’
This project, funded by the Loddon and Test LEADER Programme, is the purchase of equipment needed to improve efficiency and product quality and facilitate barista training and coffee tasting events that will add new income streams. Moon Roast Ltd is an award-winning local coffee business and this project will help the business develop, create further employment and also positively impact Chilton Manor farm, creating opportunities for diversification of income.
It is part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development

Our passion for fine coffee began in Mincing Lane, London where coffee was once traded and has been in the family ever since.
In 2014 the fourth generation of Bradshaws started roasting coffee in a barn in rural Hampshire, by the light of the moon. And so Moonroast, with its impressive coffee pedigree, was born and the story continues…
Since establishing our relationship with Moonroast, Chococo has seen an increase of 200 cups of coffee per week and repeat custom from our café customers. Fran and his team have been fantastic to work with, offering initial coffee tasting in the store to barista training on site, collaborating on new grinders, ongoing advice and knowledge to the team, in store and at the Roastery.Libby Hayes, Chococo, Winchester
Moonroast Coffee is situated in delightfully rural surroundings, in the heart of the Candover Valley. Francis Bradshaw has created an artisan roastery making small batch, slow roasted coffee with beans sourced from the best smallholders in the world. Francis’ father, Haydon Bradshaw, one of Britain’s top coffee tasters, still brings his expertise to Moonroast’s speciality coffee journey.
At Moonroast we take great care to create our own blends as well as crafting single origin coffees, each with their own roasting and flavour profile for retail as well as wholesale. All our beans are blended after roasting.
