The Finest Arabica Beans

Catering, EMEA, Service Provider News

Blue Apple Catering has launched Pip & Bean Coffee, a bespoke blend of the finest Arabica beans, developed in-house with Bewley’s Tea and Coffee


Contract caterers compete with high street brands to offer coffee and Blue Apple recognised the time was right to create a blend and brand that tasted great and captured their company values.


The "Pip" in the brand name, Pip & Bean, is derived from the tag-line, "Passion, Integrity, Pride", with sustainability taking a central role in the cultivation of the company's coffee beans.


Speaking at the product launch, Blue Apple Design and Brand Manager, Jo Billing, said: "We have created a coffee to call our own that embodies our core values and one with a story that we are truly passionate about."


CEO, Brian Allanson, added:

"We are incredibly proud of Pip & Bean as it has been created 100 per cent in-house, from tasting and developing the blend with Bewley’s to the branding you see today. A first-class coffee is one of the core pillars of our offering, and to get this absolutely right first time was critical. Having tasted a very good amount of it myself, I am convinced our customers will enjoy it as much as much as I do."

Featuring beans sourced from Comisuyl, a progressive co-op of small coffee farmers in the village of Subirana in Honduras, the new Fairtrade and organic coffee brand is ground in Central America’s first working dry mill and the world’s first off-grid coffee processing centre (which is fully powered by renewable energy technology).
