Family and Dogs
We’re a sister and brother duo, born in the 80s, raised in the 90s. We’ve been in the coffee industry collectively for 15 years and we like the fun side of coffee; the way it brings people together. We want to bring the world of coffee that we enjoy to you at home. After all, coffee is subjective right? We all like what we like.
If you’re wondering where the likes of The Arnie, The Henry and The Tilly have come from, let’s point you in the direction of our four-legged friends. It doesn’t take a genius to work out why The Arnie is the smallest box and The Tilly the biggest. Our dogs are as much a part of our family as the humans.
Bringing People Together
2020 has been an un-precedented year for everyone. Running a coffee business that operates predominantly in central London has certainly been a challenge. We know the immense pressure that Covid-19 has put on us, our family and friends and that the mental health of nearly all of us will have been affected in one way or another.
We know that keeping in contact, in whatever way we can, is vital to the importance of our mental health. Our family and friends enjoyed tasting the coffees, talking to one another about the different flavours and blends and having a good old chinwag– whether that was face to face or over Zoom!
Both of us have volunteered and worked in the charity sector and we wanted to use the R&R platform to promote the charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably). The work of CALM and other mental health charities are vital to people across all communities. They run front-line services, as well as campaign and community projects and we agree with their sentiment, ‘everyone has a part to play’. You’ll see CALM feature across R&R and in our boxes but if you’d like to find out any further information, please check out their website: https://www.thecalmzone.net.
And you know what, if any of you out there are struggling, our door is always open. Please feel free to get in touch with either of us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
