New Coffee Empowers Women Coffee Farmers

27 November 2017 Uncategorized

We’re really pleased to be able to put a coffee on the bar this week that not only tastes great, but helps women in its country of origin.  Rebuild Women’s Hope (RWH) is a non-profit organisation based in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo.  It was established in 2013 by gender equity pioneer Marceline Budza, with the aim of empowering Congolese women.

Slurping good fun at the tea event

20 November 2017 Uncategorized

We had a great time at our tea tasting event on 16 November.  Claire Trumper, expert tea taster and blender, took us through the processes of growing and picking teas, plus the differences between the orthodox and ctc processes.  Next it was time for us to put our knowledge to the test by tasting each of the constituent teas that make up our custom house blend tea, also created by Claire.  She explained how some of the teas contribute flavour and some colour and appearance.  Finally we got to taste some rooibos infused gin cocktails!  Altogether a great fun and informative evening.  Thanks to Claire and all who attended.

And the winner is… Bean & Bud!

29 September 2017 Uncategorized

We were thrilled to be shortlisted for best Coffee and Tea Shop in the Yorkshire Life Food & Drink Awards, and attended a wonderful lunch at Rudding Park on Monday 25 September.  Among other excellent businesses and after a beautifully presented and delicious lunch prepared by Rudding Head Chef Matthew Wilkinson and his team, the awards were presented.  There were 15 awards in total, and we were absolutely thrilled when our name was called as the winner of the Best Coffee and Tea Shop!  The judges had been impressed not only by the quality of our offering but also our knowledge and passion.  It is really great to have our work and passion appreciated in this way.  Thanks to our wonderful team, our suppliers and our customers – we couldn’t do it without all of you.  Cheers!


Just a Coffee?

9 March 2017 Uncategorized

What does coffee mean to you?  A shot of energy to get you going in the morning?  A little treat on your way to do some shopping?  A mid-morning pick-me-up?  A cup of coffee is all this and more.  How much thought do you give to where your coffee comes from?  For us here at Bean & Bud, the perfect cup of coffee is the end of a journey.  It’s the result of many people’s care, hard work and passion.  Which is why we never treat is as ‘just a coffee’.
