We run an industrial-scale roastery at HMP The Mount, coffee academies in HMP Bullingdon, Spring Hill, and Wormwood Scrubs, as well as a coffee school in Containerville, London. Our training at Aylesbury was rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.
Yet, we think we can do more. We want to open more academies in prisons and work with private justice providers, councils, youth centres, and job centres.
We teach coffee and hospitality skills to those who would otherwise not have the opportunity. We aim to equip our ‘Graduates’ with whatever they need to secure a job in the coffee industry.

The Redemption Roasters education & employment programme gives offenders and ex-offenders the opportunity to equip themselves for a career in hospitality upon release from prison. Our course focuses on specialty coffee skills as well as the soft skills needed for work and daily life.
We work with the prison to ensure every learner gets a positive experience of the industry that we love and offer them the chance to begin a new career upon release. Our Education team supports every interested graduate “through the gate” and into their first interview either with Redemption or with one of our employment partners.
The Redemption Roasters community training centre has been developed to extend the reach of the work we have done in prison to date.
Our community training course, based in London, enables us to reach a wider group of both men and women recently released from prison as well as young people “at risk of crime”. Our learners are ready to learn and ready to work so the course is built around their immediate needs to get them into employment as quickly as possible. We work in partnership with the Forward Trust to give our graduates the best possible chance of securing long term employment and a future without crime.
