Barista & Co and FBA join BHETA

Barista & Co Coffee and FBA International are the latest housewares suppliers to join BHETA (British Home Enhancement Trade Association).

Based on the south coast, Barista & Co Coffee now exports to over 30 countries. Founder James Gray was originally inspired to create the company while enjoying super sweet ca phe da coffee at a street coffee seller in Hanoi with girlfriend, Louise.  He appreciated that great coffee does not need to be complicated.

With a career background in wine and consumer goods, James thought that fresh coffee, along with coffee makers, accessories and friendly advice should be made accessible for consumers so more people could enjoy a higher standard of coffee at home.  Meanwhile, with a background in sourcing for the likes of Selfridges and Waitrose, Louise joined the business in 2014 bringing her passion for ethical business and ensuring transparency in the supply chain.
