We spoke to George and Karen, the masterminds behind Tarka’s Café based in the grounds of Baythorne Hall with the aim of using local suppliers to bring delicious food and drink to their guests in a friendly and relaxed environment.

How did you come to choose Coffee World?

The aim was to stay local. After a search online, we came across Coffee World and after some research and speaking to others we decided to speak to you with regards to what you could offer us.

What process did you go through with Coffee World?

After an initial visit to the office to discuss machine requirements and the initial concept, we returned for a tasting session to decide on which coffee we wanted to serve our guests. On this visit, we were taken around the roastery and we were taken through the roasting process whilst seeing it in full flow.
Once we had discussed, tasted and decided on our choice of blend and machine, we agreed an installation date from which Dean came to install the machine and Craig provided full training to our core staff to make sure we could really ensure a great coffee experience from the very first cup served.

Why did you choose the products you did?

We went for the Artisan blend. It is great to be able to provide not only a great tasting coffee but have peace of mind that we are serving a 100% Fairtrade Coffee and helping with sustainability right at the source. We also supply this coffee in the form of small bags to take home in beans or ground coffee form so our customers can continue to enjoy the coffee!
As well as the Artisan coffee, we also use the Kokoa Collection hot chocolate. We chose it as a premium product that we know our customers will love and so far we are amazed by how much we have been making over the summer!!

How has the support been ongoing?

We are very happy with the ongoing relationship between us. We order and get everything the next day and we know that Coffee World is always on the end of the phone should we require any further training or support.
Always looking to wow our customers, we recently made the decision to also offer a guest, single origin coffee with full traceability and a unique flavour which Coffee World roast fresh for us!

We would be more than happy to recommend Coffee World to people looking to start up their own café or coffee shop!!
