Supplier Spotlight: Coffee Care
This week marks UK Coffee Week – the nation’s largest celebration of coffee – so to celebrate, our latest instalment of our supplier spotlight blog focusses on our wonderful, local coffee supplier, Coffee Care.
Coffee Care is located in Skipton, just a short drive from the hotel. It was founded in 1983 by fellow hoteliers Rennick and Christine Hodgson who were driven by the desire to share indulgent, quality coffee. Today, Coffee Care is run by the second generation of family who are surrounded by a team of enthusiastic, coffee loving individuals.
We began working with Coffee Care 25 years ago! This makes them one of our longest standing suppliers. We always endeavoured to work with dedicated, local suppliers and Coffee Care were the perfect fit all those years ago and still remain so to this day.
They have an amazing collection of award-winning blends that have been carefully tested and tweaked over time to create a perfectly satisfying range to suit a variety of preferences. They still supply their five original coffee blends – American Blend, Aroma Special Roast, Three Peaks, Viennese Supreme and Westmorland – which still remain ever-popular.
But it’s not just all about the coffee! Coffee Care also provide a fantastic range of equipment, from bean to cup and espresso machines, as well as a range of extras including tea, hot chocolate, syrups, sugars and much more.
Here at The Coniston Hotel, we serve the Colombian Special Roast range which has always remained a firm favourite with our locals. It is a well-balanced coffee that is relatively strong but combines the lightness of a medium roast Colombian Huila with the addition of a darker roast. This brings out a lovely caramel, nutty flavour.
We have a fantastic relationship with the team at Coffee Care who are experts in their field, having supplied coffee across the Yorkshire region for over 35 years. They work with only reputable sources to ensure that all of their coffee is responsibly selected.
