Rob Milne and Samuel Dagostim – the owners of Kirk View Café & Bistro
on Union Terrace, Aberdeen, not only create great food but with the help of Scottish commercial roaster Blendly have developed their own speciality coffee blend.
“Coffee is so important and we were delighted to work with Blendly.co.uk in developing our own coffee blend. We have increased overall footfall as result, we are providing great coffee to our customers that would traditionally visit national chains from their daily coffee fix.
Samuel Dagostim, the South American partner in the restaurant wanted to capture the essence of great South American coffee “There’s no denying that Aberdeen, passionately embraced coffee. We have taken the time to create our own coffee blend based on some classic South American Beans using the skills of Blendly.co.uk and we were delighted quickly to see some great feedback”.
Blendly allow you to create and develop great coffee unique to your requirements
Kirk View Café and Bistro Group has been working with Blendly.co.uk, a Scottish based speciality coffee roaster and we were able to create a superb product with the help of the Blendly.co.uk team.
We understand that as part of our marketing mix it was important all our products in our bistro represent the best of local transparent produce and our coffee was so important.
Last year we spent £6.2 billion in coffee bars across the country, an increase of £400million on the year before. There are 16,500 coffee shops in Britain and the sector is booming – Developing a coffee that is our own allows us to stand out.
We also understand coffee may once have seemed frighteningly expensive, but many of us now see it as an affordable luxury, and for others, it is practically one of life’s basic necessities.
Coffee shops seem to have a truly universal appeal; they have captured the hearts of men, women and even children from all socio-economic groups. But it was women who drove the introduction of coffee shops to the UK, and it is women who drive many of their key features in the Kirk View Café.
The Kirk View Café takes nothing for granted, “It was such an original idea to incorporate attractive soft furnishings. Things that we take for granted today, allowing consumers to feel like they are in their own home.” This is especially important for our female customers as we have created a great place to drink great coffee. Our Coffee shop mean women are more likely to drive the look and feel of coffee experience and help us develop more innovation.
So there are plenty of reasons for all our coffee lovers to order up a coffee and stay in a relaxed environment and eat some great local food.
