Bridge Coffee Roasters, the Cardiff and London-based, independent coffee roaster and wholesaler, who has been serving coffee to the catering industry since 1985, has announced a new a direct to consumer offering via www.bridgecoffeeroasters.co.uk.
The move compliments its highly successful, wholesale offering that serves a variety of customers from independent coffee shops, larger chains and other hospitality venues such as hotels and restaurants including a bespoke white label service.
The foundation of the consumer offer mirrors the ethos of the business set up by Bernard Devenish over 35 years ago and is all about democratising premium coffee to more people than ever before at the click of a button. The business is now run by Bernard’s sons Max and Darryl.
The offer focusses around ten coffees, created from responsibly sourced beans crafted from exclusive house blends and single variety options sourced from Peru, Brazil, Sumatra, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Papua New Guinea and Columbia.
House blends combine several single-origin beans and are designed to create a complex but harmonious flavour profile. Single-origin blends are the product of one specific estate. The beans are harvested and processed alone to showcase each variety’s unique flavour.
All take the Bridge Coffee Roasters ‘know how’ to bring you the perfect cup for caffeine aficionados to novices alike. Offering a variety of options from ground coffee or beans for the customer to grind themselves from the perfect grind for a smooth flat white to the ideal blend for that espresso, all designed to create the ultimate brew at home like a professional barista. Starting from £9.00.
And for coffee at the touch of the button Bridge Coffee Roasters has also launched two specific blends in ‘pods’ that are compatible with most machines from £7.90 for 14.
To compliment the new offer, the website also carries a range of accessories from machines to grinders, kettles to scales, drippers to filters, in fact everything you could possibly need for that great tasting cup of coffee.
A subscription service is also available taking the hassle out of re-ordering coffee and starts at £8.10.
