About Odd Kin Coffee Roasters

Odd Kin Roastery launched in January 2021, with the team roasting the coffees they love to drink, for the people that they love to drink them with.

Odd Kin was a pipe dream of the team at Wayland's Yard until the lockdown allowed them to slow down and identify why they were in the coffee business to begin with. The team have been brought together over a number of years through their love of giving a little lift to those around them – they’ve all chosen coffee as their way of doing this and are excited to share their passion with you.
