Breakfast Briefing

We were contacted by DigiKind company and asked to talk to fellow Small Business owners about our experience during our Start Up phase. It was a very humbling introduction and we were so happy to talk to DigiKind's co founder Kathy Kyle Bonomini about what we think it takes to grow a small business in today's economy. You can see our video HERE            

Small Business Saturday

Last month we featured our Small Business Saturday UK win and this month we met the #SmallBiz team in Whitley Bay for a live interview as they toured the UK celebrating SMEs. We were also invited to the House of Lords to celebrate our win with everyone on Monday 29th November. Sadly we had to cancel the trip last minute because our little boy was not well; on top of that the bad weather and new Covid variants help tipped our decision to stay out of the big smoke.

We wanted to dedicate our win to all of our customers who continue to support our vision of sustainable coffee and celebrating the farmers. 

New Shipment

The new coffee harvest is now safe and sound in the Roastery after some frustrating set-backs at the port, we suspect its due to all of the extra work and administration required for European imports creating knock on effects to the global imports, hopefully they will be up to speed by the next shipment! The Brazil frost certainly caused an overall price increase to the Central and Latin America Coffee Economy which is fantastic for the farmers but less so for us as the buyers and you as the end user coffee drinkers. Specialty Coffee was buffered slightly given that we already pay the farmers a higher premium and we are hoping to avoid any drastic price changes. 

Christmas coffee packs

Our Christmas Coffee Packs are now live on the website and can be found HERE.

The price includes wrapping, (personalised) card and delivery, we also make a small donation to WWF (animals not wrestling) with every purchase. 

You can choose one of two packs or we also have gift cards available. If you wanted something different wrapping you can also contact us and we will do our very best to help.
