Sidewalk Coffee House Blend launch

About our house coffee blend We've been using our coffee blend for our little cafe in Highfields Caldecote for about a year now.   We mix a large proportion of hand selected Brazilian speciality coffee with a small bit of Robusta to give a punchy but refined coffee suitable for espresso based drinks. It's also great in filter form but we prefer our straight single origin coffees for that!

BREXIT and the impact on coffee prices - a basic analysis

BREXIT coffee advice coffee insights news

Coffee and BREXIT We were a little surprised at the referendum outcome in the UK last week.  A lot of people were surprised! But that's democracy in action.
