In the Beginning

On Christmas Day 2021, our Wrexham Bean coffee journey began. Chatting about our shared love of coffee, we noticed a gap in Wrexham's fast-growing coffee culture.

After a few festive cocktails, we toyed with the idea of launching Wrexham's first coffee roastery. We both have Italian heritage, so our idea was to draw inspiration from the Italian way of life, where coffee is more than a drink. It's rich. It's flavourful. It's tradition.

Our history

it's in our dna

In 1945, during World War II, Rich's grandfather Antonio Priamo was captured as a prisoner of war and sent to Ruthin, where he formed lasting friendships while working on a farm. After the war, the family he worked for invited him to stay in Wales, making the Priamo family the only Italians in the rural town. Rich's father, Vincenzo, moved to Clocaenog in Ruthin at the age of 4 and stayed until he joined the Royal Navy at 15. Over 45 years, he instilled Italian traditions in his children. In 2020, Rich's father passed away, leaving a dwindling Italian community. In 2022, to preserve the Italian spirit in North Wales and their love of coffee, we launched the Wrexham Bean Company, the town's only coffee roastery.
