Small enough to take pride in every detail, large enough to invest in the latest coffee-making technologies, Bristot continues to set the bar for quality and creativity in coffee making.
Bristot’s coffee beans are carefully selected from all corners of the globe, particularly Central and South America. They are roasted and blended in Northern Italy in the beautiful setting of the foothills of The Dolomites, using craft traditions handed down from generation to generation.
A particular combination of people, location and heritage has helped Bristot to stay ahead of the game, creating exquisite Italian coffee for just short of 100 years.
Founded in 1927, Vescovi is one of Italy’s premier heritage coffee brands. Its signature blend is Grani D’oro 100% Arabica, which typifies the lengths and expertise that goes into making such exquisite-tasting coffee.
Grani D’oro 100% Arabica features highly prized Guatemala beans, grown in the western highland district of Huehuetenango, at altitudes of between 1,500m and 2,000m.
The world’s top tasters consider these beans to be among the best, not only in Central America, but the world. They are blended with premium Arabica beans, to create an intense, full-bodied flavour that’s remarkably complex and elegant.
SUNDAY represents more than just coffee — it’s part of a more holistic surf/beach/fun/do-the-right-thing lifestyle. Born in Hossegor, on the South West coast of France, we’ve introduced the brand to Devon and Cornwall, where it’s fitting right in. SUNDAY has close links with Surfrider Foundation and Surfers Against Sewage, so they’re definitely good guys.
And that goes for the way they do coffee too — building direct, fair-trade relationships with farmers for better quality beans and consistency. It respects and supports the local community wherever it sources its coffee. Beans are monitored from farm to cup by panels of top-class tasters.
The Right Stuff
Clean, green coffee
At The Fresh Coffee Company, we’re careful to partner with coffee and tea makers and other organisations who go about their business in the right way. Bristot, for example, has always been mindful of its social and environmental responsibilities, dealing only with coffee farmers who look after their people properly, work the land sustainably, and take conservation seriously.
Bristot also are signed up and certified members of the Sustainable Agricultural Network (SAN), an international body that promotes efficient farming, biodiversity and ethical working practices. SAN helps Bristot support farmers through training, field demos and advice on sustainable farming techniques
We were awarded full organic status by the Soil Association in 2018. This means that much of our product range (from coffee and tea to turmeric powder) comes with an official organic stamp of approval.
