As you may know, because we mention it at every available opportunity, we at Barely Regal Records are quite big coffee fans - the label practically runs on the stuff.

So it's with great pleasure that we can announce that, to celebrate our fifth birthday as a label, we've collaborated with Welsh coffee roasters Coaltown Coffee to put together this 17-track compilation of music by our friends and family, released physically as a bag of whole bean coffee with a download code.

Five years ago, we put out or first release, a zine/compilation called ‘Zero Years of Barely Regal’ (a joke that, like our name itself, seemed funny at the time). We were inspired to start a label in the first place by the incredible community of musicians, labels and promoters we met while living in Cardiff, and while we’ve since moved away from the city, dragging the label kicking and screaming with us, both Cardiff and indeed Wales remain places that are very important to us. As such, we’re really pleased and honored to able to work with a Welsh coffee roasters on the release that marks us miraculously somehow having made it to five years as a label – particularly one that shares our grassroots ethics.

From the very start we've always tried where we can to put out releases on interesting formats, so this provided us with the perfect opportunity to combine two of our biggest loves, coffee and music.
