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’.

New year, same mission!3 January 2017 Uncategorized
We would like to wish all our customers, roasters and growers a Happy New Year! We hope 2017 is a good one for all of us.

One thing that won’t change, however, is our commitment to bringing you the best coffee around.

Our favourite time of year!3 October 2016 Uncategorized
Keats called it the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. Many people love autumn for its beautiful colours, the slight nip in the air, the bright but cold mornings. For us autumn means our favourite time of year in terms of coffee seasonality: many of our favourite coffees come out at this time of year.
New Teas on the Menu11 August 2016 Uncategorized
We source and select all our teas with the utmost attention to quality, seasonality and the aim of bringing you the very best teas around, especially some great teas that you might not get to try anywhere else. We have just relaunched our tea menu boards so that they include detailed information on origin, process, tasting notes and supplier, in the way that we do for coffee. So you can see where your tea was grown and go on an exotic tea journey!
Milk & sugar? No thanks!11 July 2016 Uncategorized
Why do the English put milk in their tea? There are many myths and theories about this. One theory is that in Victorian times, if one was using inferior quality china cups, putting cold milk in the cup before adding hot tea prevented the china from cracking!
Whatever the reason, it is certainly not to improve the flavour. If you use good quality loose leaf tea and brew it properly, it produces a wonderful bright and complex brew which will only be masked and spoiled by adding milk.
Bean Label Video4 June 2016 Uncategorized
We were recently visited by new coffee platform Bean Label, who are putting together a website to help people find great coffee shops. Liam and his videographer filmed some great pieces in our shop and held an informative and entertaining interview with Ruth, who spoke about our vision and emphasis on great coffee origins.
