Speciality Coffee Beans Roasted in Aylesbury

speciality coffee beans

At Artistry Coffee we stock speciality coffee beans roasted locally at Aylesbury HMYOI as part of a scheme to help reduce reoffending rates.

This social rehabilitation project in Aylesbury gives young offenders opportunity to learn competition level barista skills and under the guidance of a Head Roaster to understand more about coffee beans and the art and science of roasting.

We currently have 3 coffee bean origins suitable for espresso and 4 more aligned to pour-over and drip filter coffee making.

Plus a speciality coffee in Nespresso compatible pods.

See more about our locally roasted coffee beans online at artistrycoffee.co.uk or in person at Duck Farm Court, Aylesbury. (near Morrisons).

Our new supply of coffee beans is mainly coming from Redemption Roasters who specialise in high-end coffee roasting in small batches.

They’re an operation with an incredible story and mission and we’re delighted to be stocking beans roasted locally in Aylesbury in such a special project.

We’ve planned our own move to Aylesbury for a few years now, and we first came across Redemption Roasters at London Coffee Festival in 2017. We knew then that we’d love to work with them for a number of reasons.

The coffee beans Redemption roast is ethically sourced generally from small farms and Redemption have first-hand knowledge of the farms. There’s usually a story associated with each.

To have locally roasted beans was something that seemed special too, however the project that is behind the whole process is incredibly visionary and valuable.

Redemption Roasters are based at Aylesbury Prison – HM Young Offenders Institute. They are part of a project aimed at reducing re-offending rates. The vision is that by skilling up the young people with specialist vocational skills and real prospects for employment there can be  transformation in the lives of these young people. Redemption host a café inside the prison where competition level barista skills are learned. They also have a roastery under the guidance of a head roaster and assistant roaster. They take charge of the roasting process and gradually allow the young people more involvement as they prove their skills.

Redemption also do all they can to help place the young people in employment on release.

So with all of this, and the fact that the coffee tastes great to – we were very exited to confirm that we will be able to sell Aylesbury Roasted beans to our customers – whether in Aylesbury itself at Duck Farm Court, or online.

Colour, design, and an expression of ecofriendly individuality.

The ecoffee story could be one of colour, of design, of environmental concern, of practicality, of individuality. In fact it’s all of these.

The wide range of patterns and designs make the ecoffee cup a colourful attractive cup which can be a little expression of individuality every time you have a coffee.

The ecoffee cups available at artistrycoffee.co.uk are reusable takeaway coffee cups. They could give you a discount on your next takeaway coffee from your favourite coffee shop as increasing numbers are offering discounts if you use your own cup rather than a throwaway cup. So everytime you use your own cup you could be making a positive difference to both your wallet and the environment.

The problem with a lot of own cups is that they can affect the taste – giving a hint of plastic or metallic taste – or are heavy (ceramic cups). The ecoffee cup is light and durable, yet has none of these taste effects as it is naturally sterile bamboo fibre.

The problem of waste from takeaway cups has now reached the news headlines on more than one occasion and the government is considering a surcharge on their use, so the ecoffee cup can represent your own response to this issue. A thin plastic coating is present in most takeaway cups, which is very difficult to separate in normal recycling operations, so the sad story is that despite most of us thinking for many years that we were recycling – we weren’t! The cups have generally ended up in landfill. Using your own cup puts you in control and ensures you’re not contributing negatively to this issue.

The ecoffee cup is made from naturally organic bamboo fibre combined with a non-GMO corn starch and a resin binder. The lid and sleeve are food grade silicone. Bamboo is fast growing, quickly renewable and sustainable. It doesn’t require any pesticides or chemicals and absorbs a third more CO2 than an equivalent area of hardwood trees.

An ecoffee cup can last indefinitely if you take care of it, but the cup is naturally biodegradable at the end of its lifetime and the silicone lid and sleeve recyclable with kerbside recycling.

It’s not insulated, but will keep a drink warmer for longer than a takeaway cup.

The ecoffee cup is suitable for vegans as it contains no tallow or other animal products.

So why not take a look at the fabulous range of ecoffee cups at artistrycoffee.co.uk and see what suits your style!
