Our coffee is made by properly trained baristas using Monmouth Coffee Company organic espresso beans – a combination of their certified coffees from Kaffa Forest (Ethiopia), Granja La Esperanza (Colombia) and Finca Chelin (Mexico) with a flavour profile that is full and sweet with fruity length and a cocoa aftertaste. Or as we like to say… it’s just lush.
We love working with Monmouth Coffee – they have a well-deserved cult following. We love their values, their heritage and their commitment to quality. Back in 1978 Monmouth began roasting beans in the basement of their little shop in Covent Garden. Today their dogged determination and attention to detail has made them a clear leader in the world of coffee. Ensuring nothing but the best for their beans, and to maintain their flawless reputation, those wishing to use Monmouth beans must be barista trained by them.
We are proud to represent Monmouth in the South West and we invite their coffee gurus down to Padstow regularly to ensure that we’re squeezing the very best coffee possible out of their beans.
“We roast coffee from single farms, estates and cooperatives. When we taste a coffee that we like, we want to know where it comes from and who grows, picks and processes it. We travel extensively throughout the year, visiting the producers and cooperatives with whom we currently work and looking for interesting varietals of coffee and new farms from which to buy. During these visits we talk to farmers and cooperative members, learning more about the coffee they grow and process and the challenges that they face. We then look to establish a relationship with the grower and exporter of that coffee. We believe that where such a relationship exists, quality, quantity and price requirements can be discussed in an open and equal way. We see this as sustainable, fair and equal trade.”
