Crazy Goat - Be More Goat

A long time a’goat (around 800AD), there lived an Ethiopian goat-herder (cue yodelling) called Kaldi – who one day noticed his goats going crazy for a certain type of berry from a certain type of tree. So wide-awake the goats became, they just wouldn’t sleep.

Excited, fascinated and probably pretty tired from wired goats, Kaldi dashed off to see the Abbot at his local Monastery. Together they made a drink with the berries and found it kept them more alert through long sessions of prayer.
News of the drink’s qualities soon spread to Medina, Mecca and eventually to Cairo, Damascus, Baghdad and Constantinople. By the 17th century, coffee had made its way to Europe, and not too long after this, of course, it was down your local High Street.

A few hundred years later…
The Crazy Goat was born. Lord Charlie Goatsworthy the Third (‘Crazy’ to his friends) is the goat about town; roaster not a boaster, he’s the gentleman billy goat with a crazy ambition to make the coolest coffee chain in the world with a nod to the goats that came before him.

Our core values

Disruptive by nature
Crazy Goat's disruptive by nature
What does that mean? It really just means we always like to do things differently and stay ahead of the pack, so we're always bang on for the latest coffee tastes and trends. Trailblazers, tastemakers, that sort of thing. It definitely doesn't mean we'll charge into your garden and eat your washing.
Embraces emerging coffee trends
Crazy Goat embraces emerging coffee trends
We're currently in the process of developing our very own cold brew coffee, served through cool nitro brew taps. Latest research says that nitro coffee in particular helps boost the mind and attention span and is massive in Silicon Valley, don't you know. We're also developing our CBD oil range to complement.
Sustainable
Crazy Goat's sustainable
It's not just what's in the bag. We're very proud to be one of few coffee providers to have specially pioneered fully biodegradable bags that break down faster. Naturally we're also committed to using the most environmentally friendly options possible when it comes to cups, lids and other products that we use and supply.
