About us


At Bairro Alto we have combined our passion for product design with our love of coffee. In a small workshop in Bristol we test processes, develop ideas and make products. Inspired by a trip to Lisbon many years ago, we have since been pursuing the 2 things we enjoy most in life – making coffee and designing products.

Our products have been tested by professional baristas as well as home baristas. And of course we use the products everyday for all the coffee we drink (which is a lot!)

Manufactured in the UK

Our products are designed and made in Britain. We believe in making things from high quality raw materials, taking time to consider each stage of the manufacturing process.
