New coffee range has a sense of occasion

SUFFOLK-based coffee company Paddy & Scott’s has secured a regional listing with Tesco for its gourmet “When to you drink your coffee?” range.

Having achieved considerable success in selling through independent fine food retailers across the country, as well as supplying many hotels, restaurants and cafes, Paddy & Scott’s ethically-sourced occasion-branded coffees will now be available in 42 Tesco stores.

The three blends target key occasions when people most often enjoy a coffee – first thing in the morning, during the day and when relaxing and enjoying quality time with friends.

Co-founder Paddy Bishopp said: “The concept behind ‘When do you drink your Coffee?’ was to develop a range of top quality coffees that simplify the coffee-purchasing process for those consumers who are currently bewildered by the number of different blends on offer.

“Judging by the response to our coffees to date, we think discerning Tesco shoppers will love the taste and enjoy exploring this beautifully crafted range.

“Most coffee labels focus on countries of origin such as Guatemala, Kenya or Ethiopia, yet consumer research shows that 72% of coffee drinkers are more aware of the occasion when they drink their coffee than the characteristics of coffees from different origins.”

The “Morning Coffee” is described as a medium-bodied South American blend offering a kick-start to the day, the “All Day Coffee” is a smooth medium roasted Colombian blend, and the “Great With Friends Coffee” is a dark roasted blend from Indonesia and Africa selected to deliver a coffee “hit” without too much caffeine.
