Our Coffee is 100% Fairtrade & Organic
Esquires Coffee we believe, is the only High Street coffee chain in the UK with 100% Fairtrade and Organically grown coffee! Our customers have a discerning palate who appreciate not only a great coffee, but are also conscious of its origins and how it is produced. Hence why all Esquires Coffee is now 100% organic and Fairtrade certified.
We have two particular blends of organic coffee- espresso and filter. Our espresso blend hails predominantly from Peru and Honduras; the medium to heavy body from Peru and the sweetness from Honduras. Our filter coffee beckons from Bolivia and Indonesia- the body and depth coming from Indonesia, whilst the sweetness and smoothness comes from Bolivian Coffee.
Our espresso coffee was been carefully developed to produce a blend we consider the Best in Britain. It is a full bodied, rich roast blend, developed to taste particularly great in milky drinks. Although a rich roast, our espresso is exceptionally smooth, and doesn’t have the bitterness of many espresso blends on the high street.
Working in partnership with our coffee roaster, our Espresso is ethically sourced, with beans coming from Fairtrade certified cooperatives. We source from 4 co-operatives in Peru, Sumatra, Honduras and Tanzania, expertly roasted in the UK .
Since 2007, all our coffee is Fairtrade certified. We have also added Fairtrade certified Esquires hot chocolate (from Peru & the Dominican Republic), sugar, teas and other food items. We will continue to seek out ethically produced products, whilst always bearing in mind that we will not compromise on their quality in the process.
Recently, Esquires sought to introduce a range of the finest teas, which we could be as equally proud of as our immensely popular proprietary espresso coffee blend. We achieved this early in 2010 with the provision of eight hand prepared loose leaf teas , from Suki Teas, served individually in a distinctive tea pot with its own unique serving tray.
In addition to our premium range of hot beverages we also serve and extensive range of iced beverages ranging from Fairtrade Italian Milkshakes, Caffe Frappes and Real Fruit Smoothies, which provide “2 of your 5 a day”
