Perky Blenders are a family business, roasting Great Taste Award winning specialty coffee in their Leytonstone roastery and serving up daily brews in their coffee shops across East London. Christmas 2020 sees the small, highly caffeinated team, launch their much-anticipated yearly Christmas blend,featuring a beautifully illustrated pouch, for home delivery via the website, in-store throughout their cafés and across Eat17 Spar shops around the country (£7.50, per 250g bag).
Freshly roasted in East London, the Christmas blend is comprised of Kenyan washed Mahiga beans with pulped natural Brazilian Fazenda Samambai beans. You’ll be greeted with a veritable selection box of flavours: candied fruit, orange, caramel, redcurrant, hazelnut and milk chocolate. Head of Coffee Francois Knopes says, “Kenyan coffee has big body and brings forward fruity flavours. Brazil is the sweet base note with caramel, chocolate and nut flavours”.
Illustrated by fellow East Londoners, Tom & Jess Jones-Berney, a brother and sister design duo also known as Tomartacus, the highly giftable packs depict an inviting snowy scene at Perky Blenders’ Project 660 Leyton Café. Co Founder Victoria Cozens says, “we were keen to feature one of our shops, in particular 660, as the community has really pulled around us to keep us going over a challenging time for indie coffee shops, so it’s a bit of a nod of thanks to them and a gesture of solidarity to all small businesses keeping Christmas 2020 festive.”
Go a step further and gift a, letterbox friendly, regular delivery of Perky Blenders to your coffee loving pals, reminding them of just how generous you are on a monthly basis.
