Why Your Pub Needs to Take Coffee Seriously for Catering

Why Your Pub Needs to Take Coffee Seriously for Catering
27/07/2016

Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Pinterest Coffee is a growing business with 70 million cups drunk per day and it thought to be the most popular drink on the planet. In 2015 Britons spent £7.9 billion in coffee shops; up 10 percent since 2014. In the next decade, it’s expected that in sales of coffee will break through the £15 billion mark. JD Wetherspoon sells 1 million cups of coffee per week, showing just how much pubs are in the coffee game. This is exactly why pubs need to take coffee seriously.

In a pub, coffee can be selected after a meal, or just as a drink in its own right. If your pub is open all day, serving coffee will bridge the gap in the quieter periods between lunch and dinner. Coffee is a drink that can be enjoyed any time of day and as a social event. These days, more and more people opt for a non-alcoholic drink, showing that pubs need to move with the trends and cater for people – and this means coffee.

If you’re going to compete with the big-name coffee shops, you need to be serious about your coffee; your customers will expect a high quality cup of coffee – and options too – just like they do when they come in and order a pint of beer or a glass of wine. Finding the right coffee machine is vital; your staff need to be happy and comfortable using it so they can serve up the perfect cup in record speed. These days if you work behind a bar that serves coffee, you need to be a barista as well as a bartender.

When you’re serving all these cups of coffee, you want it to look good. Choosing the right catering crockery for you is vital; whether you want to go for a traditional white range such as Churchill’s Art De Cuisine Menu White or opt for a range such as Churchill Vintage Prints if you’re after something a little different you could go for the warmth of the Churchill Stonecast Spiced Orange range.

Of course, you need to keep your equipment in optimum performance, which is where Suma Café comes in. Their range caters for keeping coffee machines and equipment in working order to provide better tasting coffee. Their Suma Café Grinder Clean can keep coffee grinders in tip top shape; it’s natural, gluten free, food safe and flavour neutral, and comes in coffee bean shaped tablets for the most effective result possible, removing even the most stubborn stale coffee residue and coffee odours. While the Suma Café Powder is a phosphate-free coffee machine cleaning powder suitable for daily use and Suma Café Descaler Liquid is effective in descaling hot water tanks and coffee and espresso machines.

Most importantly, remember to listen to your customers about what they would like to see on your menu and contact Pattersons for any beverage service requirements you may have. Your customers will be visiting your pub for a relaxed, leisurely experience; we can provide the equipment, it’s up to you to provide the experience.
