    About Relish Coffee

    Frustrated by the restrictive nature of the corporate world, the journey of Relish Coffee started by Polat in Whitley Bay, 2012. Mike, a colleague and friend felt the same way and joined this small business where their roasting adventure began. Polat, born and raised in Turkey shipped off to the UK in 2001 where he began work in a well known coffee chain as a Barista. Reminding him of the coffee aroma in the markets where he grew up Polat soon fell in love with the whole coffee experience. The different process’ of making coffee and the flavours that could be created fascinated Polat and his passion for coffee was ignited. Scottish through and through, Mike packed his bags and dispatched to England in 2007 where he started working with Polat. Their friendship and love for great coffee has brought Relish to where it is today. Two coffee addicts together, …Read More »
Today the humble coffee bean has become part of our everyday life. Despite being one of the most popular beverages on the planet, many people have little knowledge about what they drink every day. 

Legend has it that coffee was discovered by a goat herder named Kaldi who noticed his animals getting jittery after eating ripe coffee cherries – yes the coffee bean is actually a fruit!

It was from here in Ethiopia that the first coffee trees were cultivated. Coffee is now produced in many countries and we currently source our beans direct from local farmers in Brazil, Guatemala, Ethiopia, Columbia and Peru.

The two coffee strains are arabica and robusta. Robusta has a high caffeine content and the plant is more disease resistant. Arabica contains 50% more lipids and has a higher sugar content, this leads to higher acidity from which more complex flavours and aromas can be created.

In one study, results showed a direct relation between lipid content and beverage quality – which is why we use arabica beans for all of our coffee roasting.

At present our range of four single origin roasts from Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala and Peru are available as beans or ground to your requirements in 250g sealed bags.
