In the next instalment of our Customer Spotlight blogs, Dan has been to the Midlands to visit the excellent Coffee Architects of Leamington Spa.
Our man Dan has been out and about visiting some of our favourite customers. Here’s his blog on the lovely Home Coffee in Southsea.
Customer Spotlight: Porthminster Cafe
It wouldn’t take much persuasion to get us down to St. Ives for a holiday, yet Porthminster Café (who have served Small Batch Coffee since 2011) provides the stunning Porthminster beach with even more appeal. Sitting snugly beneath the slopes of Porthminster Point and with uninterrupted views across the turquoise waters to Godrevy Lighthouse, this seafood restaurant makes us feel a little bit jealous that our own views aren’t quite as idyllic.
Customer Spotlight: Tom’s Freshly Made Sandwiches
After featuring our newest customer last week it seems only fitting this week to talk about our longest standing wholesale relationship, Tom’s Freshly Made Sandwiches of Palmeira Square in Hove.
We met Tom way back in 2008 when we were still roasting our coffee over in Portslade and Tom’s was still a building site. Tom bought the first espresso machine we ever sold, a 2 group Gaggia that is still going strong, and was the first start up business we supplied with beans and coffee training.
Almost eight years later Tom’s is a fixture of central Hove and Tom has become a close friend. We’ve shared many a beer, attended his wedding and eaten lots and lots and lots of his delicious sandwiches (turkey, coleslaw and swiss cheese is the pick of the menu, trust me).
If you work in Hove I’m sure you know Tom’s and have almost certainly had many a tasty and nutritious lunch from the man and his team. Alongside the eponymous sandwiches they do a great line in salad boxes, soups, breakfasts, cakes and of course coffee. We can’t thank Tom enough for taking a punt on us when we were just starting out and it’s really cool to see both businesses still going strong eight years on.
Here’s to the next eight….. Tom’s Freshly Made Sandwiches 65 Western Road, Hove, BN3 2JQ 01273 748155 Twitter: @tomssandwiches Facebook
