cats, coffee and prizes

some of you may have noticed last weekend a few of our wholesale customers ran events with live music and entertainment to celebrate the release of the Coen brothers new film Inside Llewyn Davis, in cinemas now! We also made a custom blend celebrating the chemex brewer, typical of coffee brewing in 60’s america, and we planned to only give this to the stores promoting the film but we’ve been left with one little retail bag for a lucky person – on top of that StudioCanal have given us a beautiful signed soundtrack (either in vinyl or cd) to give away to one of you lovely people

all you need to do is tweet an image of coffee, and a cat (why a cat? watch the movie, go on, NOW!) with the hashtag #insidellewyndavis – best pic before the 31st wins

Inside Llewyn Davis – Greenwich Village Blend

"........ Each of the sites will also be running a competition giving you the chance to win Coen brothers goodies and soundtracks ......"

We were recently contacted to see if any of our wholesale customers wanted to help spread the word about the release of the Coen Brothers’ highly anticipated new film, Inside Llewyn Davis (in cinemas on 24th January).

The film documents a week in the life of an aspiring musician within 60’s greenwich village and StudioCanal thought it a perfect fit for many of our customers – within our team our resident folk music and film geeks were really excited to make something special happen and so we’ve got a number of things going on here and there…

Last years Guest Blend Subscription went down rather well.

But it was lots of work energy and money to make it all happen, and I didn’t want to do more of the same.

So we decided that it might be fun to involve some of the amazing coffee shops we work with and share with you their bespoke blends we create for their stores. This gives you the unique chance to brew from coffee shops around the UK (and maybe further) in the comfort of your own kitchen.

At the beginning of each month we will send you the guest espresso from our 2014 range (a total of 12 x 250g bags, 1 each month). You will be the first to see the new and exciting blend, and will be sent you the day before release.

Non of these coffees will appear in an in my mug subscription it is only for this subscription and the single bags

This subscription will only be open while the Acidity Squirrel is available, after this you will only be able to buy them by the bag. This order will mean you will get Acidity Squirrel straight away as the first bag you receive of your subscription

This will represent a minimum saving on the £90 it would cost if they are all £6 of 20%, what are you waiting for !
