We are delighted to be Official Milk Sponsors of the first ever Bristol Coffee Festival, which is being held in the Passenger Shed, at Bristol Temple Meads Station, on the 7th & 8th of September.
Described by the organisers as “a caffeine-fuelled celebration of the best the city has to offer”, the festival will offer coffee lovers in the south west the chance to try some great coffee, from artisan coffee roasters. To make sure that people get the best possible coffee experience, we in collaboration with Cotteswold Dairy will be supplying Pasture Promise free range milk, to all roasters at the event. This family dairy business, based in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire has won a Great Taste Award for their unhomogenised, whole free range milk and we are partnering with them, to tell people in Bristol all about the farmers and cows that produce it. We will giving everyone the chance to sample this delicious milk and we will also be running a ‘Coffee & Cows’ workshop on Saturday afternoon, starting at 2.30pm.
Baristas know just how important it is to use the right milk, to get the most out of their coffee and they understand that not all milk is the same. Using fresh, free range milk not only delivers great taste; it also ensures you get milk that ‘stretches’ to give great texture to the froth on top when steamed. But we also know that the provenance of the milk on offer in coffee shops is of real importance to coffee lovers too. Earlier this year, we commissioned a YouGov poll of people who regularly bought a cup of coffee, made with cows’ milk, to find out how much milk mattered to them. The results were clear – 84% of respondents said that it was important for them to know the milk comes from farms where cows were assured high welfare and the same number of people also said it was important that coffee shops sourced their milk from suppliers who pay a fair price to dairy farmers in the UK. Furthermore, 64% of respondents said they would be happy to pay an extra 5p and above for a cup of coffee made with Pasture Promise free range milk.
Come and visit our stand at the Bristol Coffee Festival and learn more about our Coffee & Cows campaign, which is helping coffee lovers to understand how the milk choice they make impacts upon the lives of farmers and cows. The Pasture Promise logo is the only label on milk that gives you a clear assurance that milk only comes from traditional family farms, where cows are free to graze in fields for a minimum of 6 months a year. Come and try some – we know you’ll love it!
