Meet The Team

Phil & Helen


Phil and Helen discovered 'real' coffee in New Zealand while travelling the world on a year-long honeymoon in 2006/07. Their love of coffee was born over endless flat whites and sticky cakes as they explored the Land of the Long White Cloud. On returning to Europe they settled in Switzerland, where they lived for a decade, before returning to the UK in 2015. Their search for a coffee business ended in November 2018 when they purchased Bean & Bud!

The tea here is sublime and the baristering is the best in Harrogate.
Bean & Bud is so inviting – the colours, the artwork and the welcome from the staff, it’s a place to take ten minutes out of the world and enjoy a fantastic cup of coffee.
Lovely people, a great welcome and great music – and of course Bean & Bud serves the best cup of coffee in town!
I like the fact that they tell you about the new products in layman’s terms, - coffee isn’t made to be complicated, there’s simply a real passion here for trying new blends.
The quality of the coffee, served by genuinely nice people, – it’s what a true independent business is all about.
The knowledge of the baristas is phenomenal and they are happy to take the time and effort to explain every product.
Bean & Bud has made speciality coffee very accessible – they have a fantastic range.
What I love about Bean & Bud is the zero pretention. It’s welcoming and friendly, yet so forward thinking.
They have a very creative way of introducing guest coffees.
