The Boathouse Glencaple Case Study

Denyse Boyle has been working with Blendly for ten months and was delighted to find a Scottish based artisan coffee roaster & blender to supply the coffee at her popular café and shop, which she runs at Glencaple in Dumfries & Galloway.

A huge coffee fan, as well as something of an ambassador for it, Denyse spent a total of fifteen years working for one of the nation’s favourite coffee brands, fulfilling the roles of both store manager, and brand excellence coach – so you could say she knows her coffee beans!

The price point is very attractive too

She developed her blend with us – 80% Brazilian Santos Bean and 20% Guatemala Hue Hue bean – based on her own personal preferences, but was confident that her customers would love it too. Listing Blendly’s efficiency as the biggest benefit to using us, she is delighted that the coffee is roasted for her by Blendly, and delivered to her so fresh!

“The price point is very attractive too,” says Denyse. “I’m the only venue that provides this delicious blend, made into fabulous hot drinks for my customers to enjoy.”

“It’s a real talking point for my customers whom I have told all about Blendly, and how we worked together to create the blend,” she added.

“I definitely feel special having my own bespoke blend for the cafe. If you take pride in your business, and want to share and promote the provenance and sustainability of the ingredients you use, then why wouldn’t you extend this to your coffee? It’s one of our biggest volume products.”

They are a fully digital, one stop shop where I feel valued as a customer. I would encourage any coffee shop to check them out and see how they can help them build coffee sales.

A next step for Denyse may be to start selling her unique blend to others, as she builds on this aspect of what is in effect, a separate coffee business within her business, something which Blendly help with every step of the way.

“Blendly have thought of everything,” finished Denyse. “They are a fully digital, one stop shop where I feel valued as a customer. I would encourage any coffee shop to check them out and see how they can help them build coffee sales.”
