Bean Smitten

Rise and grind with some of the finest hand roasted sustainable coffee in Sussex. Meet Bean Smitten.

Muddy can’t function without a decent cup of coffee, so praise be for Bean Smitten in Flimwell on the East Sussex/Kent border.

The brainchild of ex finance exec Darren Tickner, a coffee obsessive who felt so underwhelmed by chain store drinks he decided to start brewing his own – and seven years ago Bean Smitten was born. 

With access to some of the finest ethically sourced coffees worldwide, Bean Smitten are passionate about their beans and proud to roast in small batches by hand. This commitment to quality has led to several accolades including the very prestigious 3 star Great Taste award for their Classic Blend this year!

Want a regular hit? Sign up for one of their flexi coffee subscriptions – whether you’re a casual sipper or a complete coffee connoisseur, there will be a plan to suit. They are also an official distributor of Sanremo Espresso machines, so well placed to advise you on which coffee machine is suitable for your business.

Darren believes speciality coffee should be unpretentious and accessible to everyone. And at the rural roastery their staff are literally full of beans and always happy to share their expertise with customers. So pop in and say hi – make ours a double shot Revive Blend.
