Supporting Small Business – How to Support Us This Christmas

There’s been a lot of chat on social media about the importance of supporting small businesses over the festive period, which is really great to see.

we’ve been blown away by the support of our community and amazing customers throughout this challenging year. Whether you’ve come in for a coffee, made use of our Click & Collect service, bought a voucher or placed an order for some of our coffee online, it’s much appreciated!

We thought we’d give you a rundown of some of the ways you can support our business this Christmas, including gift ideas & some new vouchers we’ve just introduced.


Christmas Hampers


Back by popular demand, our Christmas hampers are available from all our locations, and we’ve been so excited by the feedback we’ve received on these so far!



You’ve got two options: Our Hot Chocolate Lover Mugs” come with some hot chocolate, mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, vanilla wafer and a candy cane. They cost £12.50 and are the perfect stocking filler for the hot chocolate lover in your life!
