AMT Coffee is a UK chain of coffeehouses that are mainly located in railway stations.[1] It was founded in 1993 by Alistair McCallum Toppin and his two brothers Angus and Alan, who were originally from Seattle.[2] Their first shop opened in Oxford City Centre. AMT was the first coffee company in the UK to use 100% fairtrade coffee and 100% organic milk.[3] In March 2011 Ethical Consumer named it the most ethical coffee chain.[2]

AMT also operate coffee kiosks which are normally on station concourses. Sometimes these are expanded into 'AMT Coffee Lounges' which are kiosks combined with a small seating area.

New bars recently opened in Stratford International Station, Guys Hospital, Gatwick Airport and Eastbourne.
