Big Maggy's Bike & Coffee Shop

AboutBig Maggys is the realisation of a dream for two men, Tony Moffa and Ian Williams. They both live on the island of Jersey and share a passion for cycling and coffee. Living in Jersey provides the perfect back drop to experience the outdoor lifestyle, especially on two wheels. And as many cyclists know, cycling and coffee seemingly go hand-in-hand. The concept for Big Maggys turned into reality when they encountered Magnus Backstedt (winner of the 2004 Paris-Roubaix and stage winner of the Tour de France)’.
Magnus had already developed his unique coffee blend under the brand name ‘Magnus Maximus’, Magnus’ nick name as a professional cyclist. Tony and Ian realised the opportunity and turned the idea of a coffee shop for cyclists, serving Magnus Maximus coffee, into reality. They also spotted an opportunity to offer a service to commuters, by providing secure bike storage and shower facilities. Joined by General Manager and Head Mechanic Mike Mitchinson, the business quickly developed into a leading prestige boutiquein the Channel Islands and a prominent brand throughout the European cycling scene.
So why the name “Big Maggys”? – Magnus is Swedish, 1.93m (6”4) tall, built like a Viking and is therefore often referred to as “Big Maggy”.
A blend of Java and Mocha beans, Magnus Maximus Coffee is chocolatey, yet surprisingly smooth in body and acidity. Our coffee is traceable now through the development of the blend with our roasting partners Cooper & Co in Jersey in the Channel Islands and Redeye Roasters in Boston.
