It’s been another big year for the team at Red Bank Coffee Roasters in Cumbria.
The acquisition of a slick Loring S15 Falcon roaster has enabled the gang to meet the increasing demand for their coffee and unlock every last drop of flavour from the greens, while also improving the roastery’s carbon footprint.
Sustainability has always been a priority for the team: the roastery’s electricity is supplied by 100 per cent renewable sources, a recycling scheme allows customers to return coffee bags, and long-term relationships with farmers ensure ethical trading.
Red Bank’s continued focus on quality, traceability and sustainability has helped the indie gain greater recognition within the speciality scene this year, with venues across the North and beyond filling their grinders with its Lake District-roasted beans.
‘a focus on quality, traceability and sustainability’
The roastery’s latest release is a collaboration with Wonderful Wild Women, a Lakes community project which encourages women to get outdoors regardless of their age or experience.
