UAE Based RAW Coffee Company Launches GCC Wide Distribution


Fresh Roasted Speciality Coffee Beans Delivered to your Doorstep!

UAE’s favourite coffee roasters, RAW Coffee Company has officially expanded their footprint in the GCC region by partnering with DHL and launching a GCC wide distribution of their freshly roasted specialty coffee beans. Countries included in the delivery route are Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Saudi Arabia.

The decision to extend their delivery offering into other markets came in response to the demand from consumers outside the UAE. RAW’s online sales over the last 12 months have increased by 70% and thus, they realized the need to bridge the gap and  provide customers with a smooth and efficient delivery solution. 

About RAW:

RAW started off as bootleggers, bringing coffee beans to Dubai in suitcases from their favourite roasteries around the world. 

Established in July 2007, Founder, Owner & Managing Director, Kim Thompson, and Owner and CEO, Matt Toogood decided it was time to fill the gap for freshly roasted specialty coffee. The coffee beans used at RAW are all organically certified, roasted in small batches, and available to sample from their warehouse roastery, either as single origins or blends.

Post launch, the RAW team quickly expanded to providing support and training to baristas and finding equipment manufacturers. Today, RAW Coffee Company is recognized internationally in the specialty coffee community as the market leader of the UAE specialty coffee segment. Additionally, RAW prides itself in sourcing coffee beans ethically, whilst ensuring the supplying farmers are treated fairly and can make a sustainable living.

RAW offers a complete value proposition for all thing’s coffee related: 

  1. Supply of fresh quality roasted beans
  2. Barista training
  3. Imported Italian espresso equipment, including servicing and maintenance
  4. Consultation on design, menu concepts and optimized workflow for their hospitality partners

The definition of RAW is in its natural condition, fresh, powerful, impressive and perfect. RAW Coffee Company is a chemical reaction to the stale mundane. An antidote to normality. RAW Coffee Company is not so much a company; it’s more of a quest.
