Coffee - Paddy and Scott’s

Working from home has become the new norm for many of us, but at home or at work many of us still need our coffee to get going in the morning.

With that in mind, Suffolk coffee brand Paddy and Scott’s is now selling a range of ground and whole bean varieties which can be delivered to your home.
