  • Moonroast Coffee to take its place in Selfridges Foodhall after winning FOUR coveted Great Taste 2016 Awards

    Moonroast continues to celebrate its success at the Great Taste Awards 2016 with the announcement that the World famous Selfridges Foodhall in London is to stock three of the award winning coffees.

    Moonroast Coffee is really excited to be making its London debut at Selfridges Foodhall. The 3-star Ethiopia, 2-star Guatemala and 2-star Arabica Decaffeinated will arrive there at the end of September.

                                  

    And there are two more London café and restaurant locations where you’ll be able to drink Moonroast. Wags & Tales Coffee Bar has just opened on Brighton Road Surbiton serving the 3-star Ethiopia as their single origin.

    Spinach London is due to open in early October in East Dulwich, on Lordship Lane. Spinach is an informal, welcoming and lively oasis where you can eat well and relax with friends and enjoy a cup of Moonroast Coffee as they’ll be serving our Great Taste Award winning Peru Blend and Decaff.

  • Moonroast Coffee has won FOUR coveted Great Taste 2016 Awards

    Great Taste is the world’s most coveted blind-tasted food awards. It celebrates the very best in food and drink and this year Moonroast Coffee is one of Great Taste's stars! Literally! Out of 10,000 products to be judged, Moonroast Coffee was unanimously awarded a 3-star Great Taste Award for its Ethiopia, a 2-star Great Taste Award for its Guatemala, a 2-star Great Taste Award for its Decaffeinated Coffee and a 1-star Great Taste Award for its Peru/Ethiopia blend. And just to put that in to context 141 products were awarded a 3-star, 878 received a 2-star and 2,520 were awarded a 1-star accolade. 

    The judges, who tasted everything blind, described the 3-star Ethiopia as "one of the most complex flavours we’ve had in the last two days and of the 2-star decaf they said "we all enjoyed this individual, versatile, exceptional coffee and would drink it regularly. The competition was pretty tough and the judging, by over 500 of the most demanding palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs and producers as well as a whole host of food writers and journalists, rigorous. What a fantastic badge of honour to have, especially as Great Taste is widely acknowledged as a signpost to a wonderful tasting product. Look out for the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label on our bags!

    And it doesn't end there. As a 3-star winner, the Ethiopia has gone forward to be re-judged for the 2016 Top 50 Foods and potentially a Golden Fork Trophy winner and even the 2016 Supreme Champion. So watch this space.
