Blue Apple Catering recently launched Pip & Bean Coffee, a bespoke blend of arabica beans, developed in-house with Bewley’s Tea and Coffee. The caterer says it worked in partnership with Bewley’s as it is a company that shares many of Blue Apple’s values in terms of sustainability, Fairtrade, respect for its people and passion for its product.
The Fairtrade and organic Pip & Bean blend is slow roasted to a medium colour, producing a coffee that is complex in flavour. From a simple espresso, to a latte, a flat white and hopefully a frappe or two in the warmer months, it is an extremely versatile blend.
Brian Allanson, CEO of Blue Apple, said: “We are incredibly proud of Pip & Bean as it has been created 100% in-house – from tasting and developing the blend with Bewley’s to the branding you see today. A first-class coffee is one of the core pillars of our offering, and to get this absolutely right first time was critical. Having tasted a very good amount of it myself, I am convinced our customers will enjoy it as much as much as I do.”
