Our Story

The Balmforth and Co Story

The Balmforth and Co story began over 50 years ago. With this wealth of experience in the coffee industry, it’s fair to say we know coffee.

Back in 1967, Duncan Balmforth made it his personal mission to understand what makes a delicious hot drink.

Over 50 years and several generations later, we have worked hard to develop, craft and select our blends to create a range that we believe achieves this.

Throughout the years we have remained a family run business with the same values and ethos ingrained in our roots.

Since 2008 we have been working with a Carbon Zero company to offset our carbon emissions, we are incredibly proud of our Carbon Zero Status. Please do get in touch if you would like to find out more about becoming Carbon Zero. Take a look at our Carbon Zero story here.

We got our machines very quickly, installed and working in no time, the aftercare is superb, we have weekly visits from our very entertaining replenishment engineer, nothing is too much trouble and we would highly recommend Refreshment Systems to any new/existing business.

We’ve been using RSL now for well over 10 years. In a highly competitive market they have always maintained top quality products and service. Professional, innovative and reliable but with a personal friendly touch, I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Refreshment Systems are brilliant, I thought getting vending and coffee machines for our company would be complicated and time consuming, I was totally wrong, from the minute I called and spoke with Frazer I felt confident they could supply what we needed.
