CEO Middle East
Orbis Coffee Roastery
Justin Clarke is the founder and CEO of Orbis Coffee. Founded in 2006 as one of the earliest speciality coffee roasteries in the UAE has grown today to serve large corporates across the region as well as a loyal customer base of coffee aficionados.
From a humble beginning on the Hatta-Oman road with a tiny electric roaster and a bag of Peru organic coffee, the roastery now has 3 locations including one in Muscat, Oman and a further fourth to open in Jeddah in early 2020. Justin has recently celebrated 25 years of coffee sourcing across a network of coffee farmers as far afield as Nepal, Harar and Malawi all of whom have supplied to Orbis since its inception.
Moving towards a sustainable business is now a priority for Orbis Coffee which has recently launched fully compostable packaging as well as investing in electrical delivery vehicles in the UAE. Orbis is fully aware of the impact of climate change on arabica growing areas of the planet as is actively working to preserve heirloom varietals with the Svalbard global seed vault.
