Meet the UK Team

We are a friendly, hard working bunch here at San Francisco Bay Coffee, UK. Together we are dedicated to roasting great tasting coffee from our Caerphilly roastery.

Lead Roaster

Ricco heads up our roasting operation. With many years of experience Ricco has personally cupped a lot of coffee! Training our team and looking after them is what makes Ricco happy.

Outside of coffee, snooker together with major DIY projects are Ricco’s passions.  


Sam looks after the roasting. Cupping every batch, Sam has learnt an thing or two about coffee in his time with SF Bay and raves about our French Roast.

In his spare time you will find Sam riding his motorbike and fine tuning anything mechanical. 


Josh works with Sam and looks after roasting.

Outside of work, Josh is a passionate Cardiff City FC supporter. Enjoying travel, Josh has followed the Welsh national team to numerous overseas locations and looks to add to his list very soon.
