Max Dubiel, Redemption Roasters

In April last year we launched a specialty coffee roasting and barista academy at HMYOI Aylesbury. Our brand is called Redemption Roasters ( At Aylesbury we teach young offenders coffee skills and aim to place them with our wholesale customers or in one of our shops upon release.

Ex-offenders are 50% less likely to reoffend if they have a job on release. Therefore and as as part of our mission to help young offenders successfully reintegrate into society, we train them in professional roasting and competition-level barista skills. Together we roast specialty coffee in small batches for our wholesale and retail customers, and run a café for the prison community and visitors. On release, we also help our now ex-offenders find work using our coffee industry contacts.

Max will part of our panel on "Crowdfunding" in the Shoptalk room on Friday.  Get your tickets here
