Our Story

We are a family-business situated in Lorgues, Provence in the South of France.

Our mission is to provide you with the best coffee possible by proudly roasting green beans to perfection, which we have sourced from sustainable, quality producers around the world.

Hamish & Veruschka

Understanding that an excellent cup of tea is also very much appreciated, we source our fresh loose tea leaves from the world’s leading tea plantations.

And to further enhance your refreshment experience, we also offer carefully chosen accessories and equipment. We strive to get orders delivered as quickly as possible, and are happy to advise people on brewing preferences and techniques.

Find us at our concept store La Grange in Lorgues (13 Avenue de Toulon, 83510 Lorgues).

The Hows and Whys

Family commitments brought our couple to Provence from their comfortable life in Australia. Hamish was a building contractor and Veruschka a successful scuba diving photographer. Both had a passion for coffee and enjoyed the barista scene down under.

Upon moving, they were amazed that despite the French’s passion for coffee, the quality and variety on offer wasn’t the best available. For example, many cafés offer Robusta coffee, well known for its unpleasant aftertaste. They set themselves a mission to change this and studied the art of coffee roasting, and thus created Lorgues Coffee Roasters (LCR).

Top baristas have complimented their coffee, and it’s being sold in high-end hotels, restaurants and cafés. LCR also enjoy a steady clientele who order online, or visit them at La Grange.
