Duty Crew was established in 2021 and is run by operational Fire Service Duty Crew. Founder, Steve, joined the Local Authority Fire & Rescue Service in 1999, then in 2000 joined the Aviation Fire & Rescue Sector. Fast forward to 2021 and the fire service is still a ride he is not ready to get off...
Steve is the 4th member of his family to have been awarded the Fire Brigade Long Service Good Conduct Medal - awarded by Her Majesty The Queen to those members of the Fire Brigades of the United Kingdom who have rendered Long and Meritorious Service. Between them, the family have a combined service of just over 100 years - something they are all incredibly proud of!
The Rainforest Alliance is an international non-profit organization working at the intersection of business, agriculture, and forests to make responsible business the new normal.
Choosing Fairtrade means standing with farmers for fairness and equality, and against some of the biggest challenges the world faces.
Anyway, this is about coffee right?
As you are probably already aware, coffee is the most popular drink worldwide, with over 2.25 billion cups of coffee consumed every day - over 70 million in the UK alone. Most of it is consumed in crew rooms by shift workers such as those in the Emergency Services, and usually whilst swinging the lantern, telling a tale of ‘Remember that time when...'.
Whilst we could all finish the stories (because we’ve heard them so often) we sit, smile & laugh like it’s the first time we have heard it - for the simple reason that these times are important.
The coffee of choice varies, but it's usually mediocre, freeze dried instant coffee that comes with a bag of sugar just to make it drinkable. It's our aim to change all that by providing great quality coffee, delivered to your door.
Chances are that if you have read this far, then you really are interested in what Duty Crew is about!
We love coffee, so simply put, we aim to share our passion for great quality coffee with coffee lovers.
‘Because Life is too short to be drinking the bad stuff...'
Whether you are part of a mess-room Coffee Club or a Home Brewing Enthusiast we are sure you will find a blend to suit your taste. That’s right, our blends are not solely for Emergency Services personnel, they are very much for anyone to enjoy!
Our selection of blends are available in whole bean, filter and espresso ground to ensure you find exactly what you’re looking for.
At Duty Crew, we’re confident you’ll love our products as much as we do. That’s because we use only the highest quality beans coupled with cutting-edge production technologies and a highly qualified team.
When you place an order with us, we want you to be 100% satisfied. That is why we will do our utmost to ensure that once your order is confirmed, your product will be delivered to your door without delay.
Keeping an eye on the environment, the waste that we produce is as important to us as the taste of our coffee.
All of our 227g products are supplied in oversized high-quality, recyclable stand up pouches for the convenience of letterbox delivery.
We only roast in small batches; this helps to ensure that our coffee is fresh. It also helps to reduce waste whilst still being able to create some incredible coffee.
Used coffee grounds are generally regarded as waste, and are usually thrown away, most ending up in landfill.
Doing our bit to protect our environment for a more sustainable future, Duty Crew has launched a range of blends which are roasted using energy-rich coffee logs produced from used coffee grounds.
But – is Duty Crew coffee vegan?
It may sound a silly question - coffee beans are a plant and, as long as you choose non-dairy milk with your coffee, of course it’s vegan, right? But have you considered what goes on behind the scenes...?
We are proud to say that all of our products & the processes to create them are Vegan friendly.
