Please note that the Coffee Shop is closing permanently on 26th of May 2023.


Incredible coffee, delicious cakes, a bright, warm and welcoming atmosphere…a small café off the beaten track, that myself (Anna) and Tom were able to build entirely from scratch. When the idea for a coffee shop was born, I was travelling in Asia where I picked up a lot of inspiration and of course saw plenty of monkeys…

Upon my return from travelling, we had the opportunity to build the cafe on Sugarswell Business Park, where Tom my business partner and good friend has worked since 2014. Tom also runs a bespoke kitchen and cabinet making business ‘Monkeywood’, Tom’s skills came in very handy with the building and fitting out the coffee shop and I definitely picked up a lot of new skills along the way. With Monkeybean built and completed in November 2018, We indulged in a passion for good coffee and amazing cakes. Over the years, we have grown a community hub and met so many supportive and friendly customers.

Come and find us on Sugarswell Business Park, Banbury, OX15 6HW.

We use Limini’s House blend coffee. Hand picked speciality Arabica beans from Brazil, El Salvador and India. Ethically sourced from the finest coffee growers of South America and Asia Youri (originally from The Netherlands) came to the UK with Samantha after travelling the world together. After working in various coffee shops on the high street they decided on setting up Limini Coffee. Today Limini supplies speciality coffee all over the UK from their roastery in West Yorkshire They are fuelled by espresso and driven by customer happiness!
