Academy Coffee

"Work hard and be nice to people."

About Us

Academy Coffee is a group of family owned, speciality coffee shops with a euro cafe bar twist.

Originating at The Pumphouse - Barry, Academy Coffee is growing with several venues shortly opening across South Wales. Each having their own individual look and feel, from Victorian industrial brickwork to modern shipping containers, but all offering the same Academy high levels of food and drink quality and friendly hospitality.


All our coffee comes from our friends at Clifton Coffee. Freshly roasted, we only serve coffee that is in season. Our team are always happy to share the stories of where our beans come from and the journey behind them.
