Northamptonshire Coffee Roasters becomes coffee supplier to The British and Irish Lions rugby team
The Roastery, an award-winning small batch, organic coffee roaster based in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire (UK), has announced it has become the coffee supplier to The British and Irish Lions rugby team.
Working with numerous British and Irish rugby players over the years, The Roastery was reached out to directly to supply the coffee for the tour.
With Covid restrictions still in place whilst they are touring South Africa, the team are having to remain in camp when visiting many of the different regions. In an interview Hamish Watson (back row) stated that they are keeping themselves busy with a coffee club where Jamie George and Elliot Daly are head baristas, in charge of making coffee for the team.
Commenting on the announcement, managing director Marcel Binley said: “It is an honour and a pleasure for The Roastery to supply the coffee for the tour. Integrity, passion and respect are key features of this sport, and they match our company’s values. Great coffee and great sport have become synonymous over the last few years, we have been building this link within the rugby world for many years now and we are delighted to have been asked to supply the coffee for the Lions Tour.”
