Devon-based coffee roaster Owens Coffee has announced the opening of Perfect Waves Café within The Roastery at Ivybridge that's open from Monday to Friday, 8.30 am until 4 pm and Saturday from 9 am until 4 pm.
Four-legged friends are welcome inside the new café and in the existing outdoor seating area. It's a stylish new coffee shop serving sustainably sourced coffee freshly roasted on-site, beautifully brewed tea and delicious local produce. This expansion marks a significant enhancement to the original takeaway, now providing a warm and inviting indoor space for up to 25 customers.
Lorraine Bridden, managing director of Owens Coffee, says: "We've opened Perfect Waves Café to allow our passionate team to showcase everything we do, from our organic and Fairtrade coffee to our expertly brewed teas and locally sourced produce."
Lorraine adds, "Our customers will have a choice of coffees, including a house blend or a single origin of the day, plus our organic Decaf. We've installed our Rancilio RS1 coffee machine for our professionally trained baristas. The machine is an extremely high-tech piece of kit, which is programmable so that we're able to make consistent, precision-made coffees. Our teas, Devonshire Tea and Perfect Waves infusions are also a feature of the drinks menu. Customers visiting our new space can look forward to an all-round experience with top-quality produce brought to you by our friendly team of baristas."
The new café is proud to serve Owens' freshly roasted coffee beans, all of which are 100% certified organic and Fairtrade. Customers can choose from a variety of brewing methods, served black or with Trewithen's Barista Milk or plant-based alternatives. Soft drinks from local suppliers Luscombe Drinks, Gusto Fairtrade & Organic Drinks, Tarka Springs, Four Elms Apple Juice and Courtney's Apple Juice are also on sale.
The menu has been developed around showcasing locally sourced produce featuring a selection of sandwiches, paninis, light bites, fresh cakes and pastries with organic and vegan options. Ingredients have been sourced from local producers and suppliers including Cakewhole, Tamar Fresh, Foxcombe Bakehouse Bars, Burts Crisps, Mr Filbert's snacks, Plough to Plate and Flapjackery.
The Roastery - a purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility designed to have a low environmental impact - has been home to Owens Coffee since 2018. This is where the team clean-roast, packages and distributes their organic and Fairtrade coffee across the UK, both to consumers and businesses.
It also houses a shop, contemporary training facility and events space where visitors are welcomed, with tours and tastings for wholesale customers, and professional barista training. A range of coffee experiences and masterclasses can be enjoyed by coffee enthusiasts, including their Latte Art Essentials Workshop. Owens' range of freshly roasted coffee beans can be purchased from the shop alongside Perfect Waves infusions and a full range of brewing equipment; tried, tested and recommended by the team.
