Coffee consumption has boomed in the UK in the last 10 years or so, but while the high street is packed with chains offering fresh coffee, 72% of us still drink instant coffee at home. Stephen Rapoport is on a mission to change that - one bag of beans at a time.
The serial entrepreneur, who sold his last business to Airbnb, is the founder of Pact, a subscription service for freshly roasted premium coffee. Users sign up, choose their first type of beans from a selection of eight, most of which are £6.95 each, and when you want them delivered.
For anyone who has bought subscription snack boxes from Graze it's a similar principle, although Rapoport is keen to point out that Pact's more flexible - allowing you to bring orders forward to the next working day if you're running low, or delay them if you have a surplus.
