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, Guys Hospital, Gatwick Airport and Eastbourne.

The AMT kiosk at Stratford International station has now closed and been removed from the concourse.
