Coffee Brewing Freedom Machine

After meeting at a bar in St Ives during the summer of 2019 we both moved to Penryn and started The Cold Start Coffee Company in early 2020. We combined our love of specialty coffee, exciting cocktails and classic motorbikes to produce something truly unique. We are incredibly proud of our set up and what we do and love nothing more than sharing that passion with others.

Hayden Turnbull

Co-Founder
The biker, he’s here to ride around in a hand-built coffee brewing freedom machine. With a deep love for biker culture and speciality coffee the natural thing was to smash these two things together. He’s no stranger to the cocktail game having worked in bars for years and drank his fair share of boozy concoctions. Often found chatting rubbish with fellow bikers.

Cailean Swan

Co-Founder
With an encyclopaedic knowledge of all things speciality coffee and magic hands when it comes to creating tipples, our espresso beans never stood a chance. He’s a man obsessed with building things and takes great pride in his work (ask him about his van Gretchen) and if he isn’t tinkering with the inside of his camper you can no doubt find him sipping verdant cans in the sun.
