We love to work with quality focused businesses that share our enthusiasm, passion and interest for great coffee. If you are a quality focused food and drink business (be that a coffee shop, restaurant, hotel, etc) and you would like to change or upgrade your coffee offering then we would love to hear from you. We take an engaged approach to wholesale relationships and truly believe we have the tools and experience to help make your coffee offering the best it can be.
Due to our focus on long term relationships with our origin partners, we might have a smaller coffee offer list than other coffee companies. However, we feel this is key to providing the best coffee we possibly can and we regularly change our offer list to reflect seasonal arrivals. Alongside our house espresso blends, we offer a changing menu of around 7 to 8 single origin coffees which we can roast for either filter or espresso. All of our coffees are roasted to order to ensure they arrive with you in the freshest possible state.
We are able to ensure absolute consistency by using the most advanced roasting intelligence software (Cropster) and carrying out quality control tests for every batch of coffee we produce. Our origin partners are also stringent in their own approach to harvesting and processing coffee and are focused on detail and quality throughout the supply chain, alleviating the risk of inconsistency. We also have a destoner in place to ensure nothing other than coffee gets into your grinder!
If you are interested in having a chat or would like to stop by for a coffee to discuss how we might be able to help please don’t hesitate to drop us a line or give us a call.
The North Star Coffee Shop & General Store is a true representation of everything we can offer as a wholesale partner, from the machinery, to the tea, to the hot chocolate, to the training. Pay us a visit and see what we can do for you.
Choosing the right equipment is essential to bringing the best out of the beans you buy. It is an investment that will hugely impact the quality of the coffee you can offer customers. It is therefore a decision that is not to be taken lightly – but with such a wide choice of machines available (new and second hand) it can be an overwhelming task!
As part of our role in running a coffee academy, we regularly test out new equipment and are kept up to date with the latest technology available. We are therefore perfectly positioned to help you find the best equipment and only ever recommend a machine based on its ability to make consistently great espresso. For this reason, we have partnered with industry recognised and respected businesses to bring a variety of equipment (both traditional machines and filter brewers) to the market, all of which can be viewed in our show room.
If you have any questions about any of the equipment we supply, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We will be able to listen to your needs, taking into account your setup, and advise which option will suit you best. All of our machines and equipment are available to purchase outright or to lease on a monthly basis and we can arrange installation and service packages.
Alongside great coffee, we are also able to supply the award winning Kokoa Collection Hot Chocolate. With a wide range of single origin options available (Ivory Coast White, 58% Venezuela, 70% Ecuador, 75% Haiti, 82% Madagascar) this premium hot chocolate is prepared using tablets of real chocolate, each with varied flavour notes. With attractive presentation jars and plenty of point of sale items available, this makes a fantastic option for any business wanting to offer a high quality hot chocolate.
Storm Tea was established in 2010 by a small family business based in Newcastle. The company has always been focused on principles of environmental and social responsibility, outstanding quality and the very many health benefits of tea but it is only recently that they have really turned their hand to speciality teas. Mike Riley, previous head of Falcon Specialty Green Coffee Importers and tea taster for Taylors of Harrogate (and Yorkshire Tea!) has recently joined the team to curate an incredible selection of traceable, ethically sourced, quality teas to make up their ‘handcrafted range’ and North Star are delighted to be partnering with them to offer this beautiful speciality, ethical tea alongside our range of quality, freshly roasted coffee.
Storm offer speciality teas across several ranges: Organic pyramid teas and tisanes, the Handcrafted loose leaf speciality tea collection, the Flavour House range of scented teas with fruit pieces and tisanes along with beautiful tea pots and tea-ware. All teas are available in both retail and trade packs and come in beautifully branded tins, boxes or pouches.
