A VIBRANT ethical coffee roasting business from North Yorkshire will now supply the coffee range for established delicatessen Lewis & Cooper.
Rounton Coffee, based in East Rounton, near Northallerton, have been working on a unique blend for the last few months and have now formed a new signature Lewis & Cooper ‘house blend’.
The coffee is available to buy in the Northallerton and Yarm shops, as well as in the tearoom in Northallerton.
There are plans in the future to introduce some speciality Single Origin coffees from Ethiopia and Colombia, as well as introducing a chemical free decaffeinated coffee.
David Beattie, Director of Rounton Coffee along with girlfriend Tracy Lee, said: “We’re honoured to have our name attached to such an established and well-known shop like Lewis & Cooper.
“All of our coffees are fully traceable, and we pay sustainable prices. This premium that we pay covers the cost of production as well as guaranteeing the farmer a profit for his work. The qualities of the coffees that are produced are remarkable, and this is exactly what Lewis & Cooper were after. Being able to work alongside such a well-established retailer is a fantastic endorsement for us”
Rounton Coffee will continue to roast their own range of seasonal speciality coffees alongside the special blend they have created to supply the delicatessen.
Fabrice Marcotullio, Food Hall Manager at Lewis & Cooper for the last 12 years said: “While we supply food from all around the world in our stores, it’s great that we can work with a new business just a few miles away which can provide such a high quality product.
“Being a Yorkshire business we want to source things from Yorkshire.”
Lewis & Cooper was established as a family business in 1899 supplying fine food, wine and hampers.
It has won awards for its wine department, tearoom and products in Yorkshire and National food/grocery awards.
