Great Taste Award Winners 2017!

We are delighted to announce that for the third year running we have won a Great Taste Award for not one but TWO of our wonderful hand roasted speciality blend coffees. For the past three years we have won awards for our coffee and teas, and this year is no exception.

Great Taste Winners - Sussex Barn & Riverside

Our Edgcumbes signature blend Sussex Barn espresso beans have been awarded 2 STARS along with our Riverside blend winning a very respectable 1 STAR!

Riverside ()“Well-balanced, refined coffee. Pleasant nutmeg-spiced start and a real, creamy sweetness. Delivers on the caramel finish.  A strong chocolate flavour.”

Sussex Barn (★★)“The beans display a good even colour in roasting. There is a green shoot freshness on the nose. Then, as described, the taste develops through the berries and into a balanced finish of chocolate and slightly toasted nuts. The finish is fresh and lingers very pleasantly. An excellent, brilliantly made coffee!”

Well, we love the fruity language of the judges! Why don’t you judge for yourself? Regulars to the Edge Café at the Roastery near Arundel will already be familiar with the Sussex Barn, which is our signature house blend – a mix of Guatemalan, Ethiopian and Columbian beans.Caffeine Addicts

Our café is open 7 days a week from 7am-5pm weekdays and 9.30am-5pm at the weekends. Building works are currently in progress and in late November we hope to open our new Edge Café with plenty of indoor seating!

We will be serving a range of sandwiches along with our famous brownies, flapjacks and our knockout coffee stout cake. The conversion of this former stable will also include a specially designed space to share our enthusiasm for food and craft where you can enjoy courses on coffee, baking, chocolate-making and even creating greetings cards from coffee sacks!

What is the Great Taste? – The Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the epicurean equivalent of the Man Booker prize. We are therefore quite simply over the moon to be awarded and recognised as a producer of quality fine coffee.

We believe that simply fresh is best and you can’t get fresher than straight from our own Roastery. Have you tried our award winning blends?
