We are working closely with a small local coffee supplier from Bridgnorth Shropshire called Danielle’s Coffee. Danielle the founder of the company is a very passionate barista designing all her own unique coffee blends. Together we have chosen the blend that we believe is perfect for Van Chaud. Danielle regularly conducts Barista training sessions with us, to ensure we get the very best out of every coffee bean.
Our chosen blend of beans is from Honduras, Mysore, Mocha Sidamo & Ugandan. A rich, smooth, full-roasted blend of South American and African arabicas and Indian robusta, giving a full-bodied and a liquorice sweetness. Our Brazilian decaff uses a special water steaming process to remove the caffeine. This has the effect of darkening the beans but crucially does not impair the flavour. It is one of the best ways of removing caffeine as it is 100% chemical-free, gently removing 99.9% of the caffeine. We think you’ll love them!
For the perfect brew every time, we have chosen a wide selection of teas from many of your favourite brands including:
- Brew Tea Co
- Tick Tock
- Great British Tea Grown in Cornwall
Our selections include English Breakfast, Darjeeling, Green Tea, mint, organic decaf, Smoky Lapsang, Chai tea, Fairtrade Earl Grey, Rooibos and where possible we only select individually wrapped tea for freshness. When you consider more tea than coffee is drank every day, you know you’ll get a great brew every time.
