Perthshire top coffee shop Brew and Chew has a great coffee and dog-friendly environment. They have a superb range of fresh food soups and a selection of sandwiches, filled baguettes, panini, cakes and scones always available.
Brew and Chew as well as looking after humans also look after your family pet and why not humans and dogs have lived in close proximity for thousands of years.
Owner of Brew and Chew, Elspeth understands that pets provide great companionship, but the benefits of looking after man’s best friend has other benefits. Studies have shown that pet owners have fewer doctor’s visits. A recent study by Katcher and Friedmann suggested seven common functions of pet ownership: companionship; something to care for; something to touch and fondle; something to keep one busy; a focus of dog attention; exercise and safety. Pets have also been indicated to have important roles in enhancing child development, the well-being of older people and may also be used in a therapeutic setting.
So if you are looking for a great high street destination with great coffee for you and superb treats for your dog Brew and Chew is the place to go.
Coffee shops are about work in another way, too – the rise of the “gig economy”. The proliferation of freelance workers. Digital contractors and entrepreneurs who don’t have an office and can’t afford to rent one – has been crucial in shaping their new role.
While the modern iteration of the coffee house is decidedly more subdued (pendant lighting, minimalist aesthetic, distressed wood) than the likes of Soho’s famed Le Macabre, where patrons sat on dark coffins and tapped their cigarette ash into skulls, Green says what they signify in the culture is similar.
The coffee house has always been a mark of sophistication … and a barometer of gentrification. Even going back to 1650s they were a sign of a rising tide of economic prosperity, because that’s when there was a trade boom.
Why choose Blendly? We at Blendly noticed that there are at least three degrees of operational activity ordinarily that lie between the consumer and their fresh coffee, restricting the range of options.
This traditional method of creating a commercial coffee blend was based around the coffee production and distribution that has been in place for many years.
It meant that coffee blends are sold pre-blended.
Customers that wanted to create their own product had a restricted range of choices
The Process for blend creation was time-consuming
The ability for customers to create their own coffee blend was slow time consuming, development of your coffee taste was never local and the choices available was limited Coffee blends also tend to lack transparency with regard to the content of the product and the available colours
The Blendly ecosystem allows volumised, customised and transparent coffee blends to be developed.
It allows customers to create their own blend that is unique to the service they want to provide. This creates access to coffee blending as a service and will remove the need to store fresh coffee by intermediaries and distributors.
The Rise of the Speciality Roaster
The rise in speciality coffee culture is widely attributed to a growing number of artisan roasters and specialist independent coffee shops that are reinvigorating the coffee scene and leading the way into the fourth wave of coffee culture, bringing with them an exciting range of single origin and micro-lot coffees that are batch roasted for optimum flavour.
According to a recent Allegra Strategies report looking into the “Future of Coffee”, the speciality coffee segment is expected to see 13% year-on-year growth, outperforming the 10% growth predicted for the UK coffee market as a whole. The same report suggests that the market for speciality coffee will increase by 100% by 2020. Now that is some serious growth by any standards!
The challenge for the small Speciality coffee Roaster are in creating a standard production base that can create a Consistency in the product as well as be developing a scale that can be relied on for mission-critical products delivery.
