Meet the team



Katie Evans

Managing Director


My family has been in the coffee and tea business all my life, so it’s in my blood.  This early taste of business life gave me a love and passion for the industry, but also taught me that good customer service is essential for a solid, sustainable business. I have taken this philosophy with me and it forms the basis of my own business, The Heavenly Coffee Company.


After returning from the coffee plantations in Costa Rica, I started up my own business; The Heavenly Coffee Company, selling both our own Heavenly blends as well as other popular ranges to independent cafes and retail outlets across the UK.


Over the past few years I have built a strong team around me – in customer service, order processing, training and delivery.  From our premises in Dinnington we are here to serve you, to help you to make your cafe or shop the very best it can be and to bring your customers delight and excitement about our products. We have remained true to my care values of delivering excellence in quality and in customer services and it is something we pride ourselves on.


The business has grown significantly over the years and our blends have become renowned amongst cafes, restaurants and hotels all over England. 

We strive to make yours a truly Heavenly experience.





Emma Richardson

Customer Service and Sales


Having joined us in January 2011, Emma threw herself in at the deep end and entered the UK Barista Championship. Emma’s speciality drink, ‘Very Berry Divine’, was a blackberry puree with cream that when mixed with the espresso gave a delicious speciality drink that tasted of Blackberry Crumble! Emma said: “Although it was a nerve racking experience, I am really pleased to have entered as my barista skills and coffee knowledge have increased hugely. I look forward to passing this new found knowledge onto our customers.”
