Coffee with April Podcast Episode 9: The background story about how Stephen Leighton founder of HasBean started one of the most successful Coffee Roasteries in the world

Stephen Leighton, founder of HasBean 
I met up with Stephen at the Has Bean roastery in Stafford, outside of Manchester, where we spent the day together. For me, that trip has been something I always wanted to do, and it didn't disappoint. 
Has Bean is a roastery that I think all of us have come across in one way or the other. They have done truly inspiring work over the years and will most likely continue to play a relevant role in the future. 
Stephen is somewhat of a Coffee Mastermind when it comes to Entrepreneurship - even so, he wouldn't call himself an entrepreneur - but what struck me the most during my visit is how genuine everything he does is. And I think that is something that reflects cleary on Has Bean as a company.  
In this Episode, we talk about: 
- How Stephen started Has Bean  
- Entrepreneurship 
- Coffee Roasting 
- The importance of remaining true to your beliefs 
- How Has Bean became one of the most iconic brands in coffee
- The process of co-owning both Drop Coffee and 3FE
- Stephen selling Has Bean (but remaining as part-owner) 
- Future plans 
- Where is the Coffee industry going?
