Bear Coffee Company

MSG Tours Ltd announce a partnership with BEAR Coffee Company as of Summer 2017. BEAR Coffee Company was founded by Michael Thorley and Craig Bunting in 2014.

The two entrepreneurs began their journey with a love affair for the hot beverage and started generating a business in their local town of Uttoxeter. Today they offer unique, high-quality coffee beans from local sources in Central America and Africa. Their aim is to support economic growth and sustainability of these flourishing communities.

Our love of coffee

The love of coffee in the MSG Tours Ltd office is no secret. The hot reviving brew is a “go-to” first thing in the morning, between meetings, and as the working day comes to a close. It has become a culture. MSG has taken it upon themselves to push their passion to a new level.


Mark Gardner, Director at MSG Tours Ltd said:
“At MSG Tours, we ‘only drink great coffee’. The excellent standards set by Bear Coffee, along with their delicious blends, fit perfectly with our mantra. We look forward to working with a company that delivers quality coffee and cares about the farmers who produce it. And of course,  tasting some of their new discoveries too”

Furthermore, MSG takes complimentary bags of BEAR’s beans along to meetings with school staff, coaches, and other valued customers as a thank you. Both organisations will support each other as local SME businesses and are mutually bringing a unique aspect into the economy.

Craig Bunting, Co-Founder of Bear Coffee Company Limited said:

“We are excited to be working with MSG Tours Ltd. Not only to encourage better coffee in the work place but also to further strengthen the community of independent businesses in Derbyshire.”

Finally, BEAR Coffee is now expanding its franchise into Derby City Centre. It’s here they will continue to work alongside world-leading coffee growers, producers, exporters, and cooperatives.
