Brothers Alistair, 51, Allan, 56, and the late Angus McCallum-Toppin opened their first coffee shop in Oxford in 1993, prompted by Alistair’s struggle to find a good espresso in the UK after emigrating from Seattle. The chain now has more than 50 outlets, mostly kiosks in railway stations and airports. The London firm’s environmental and ethical ethos includes using only organic milk, Fairtrade coffee and compostable plant-based cups. International sales hit £4.7m in 2017, and are revenues from its outlets in Ireland.
