Here at Bean enCounter, they aim to be amazing or better. They specialize in crafting artisan coffees and food. Using the highest quality ingredients is not good enough! It is their vision, care and attention that sets them apart. Their standards are so high, they virtually craft everything in house including theirr coffee beans, salad dressings and ice cream. This is how they roll!
Their love for coffee is obvious. They only roast high quality specialty coffees from ethical sources and treat the beans with the love and dedication they truly deserve. With their coffees, they aim to enhance the sweetness, brightness and inherent flavours, e.g. chocolate, hazelnut or berries within the beans. The baristas here are trained in the art and science of brewing and seek to deliver a well-balanced coffee that has no harsh negative flavours.
With amazing coffee, well they need amazing food too. As they are Californian, they love fresh, healthy and artisan fusion foods. To achieve their aims, they borrowed a celebrity chef from the States. Master Chef Luce was a former Whitehouse chef and held the Best Destination Restaurant in the World by National Geographic. He spent time in Stafford working closely with the local food providers and crafted a quirky and cheeky gourmet “fast food” menu, which has an intense Wow Factor for nearly every diet requirement.
They also like to support the local community, they have on display exclusive art work by one of Stafford’s finest upcoming photographer, Lucy Ling. They are the only restaurant to sign up to a 100% recycling program and they ensure that there staff are well treated by providing higher wages, progression and national qualifications.
In short, Bean Encounter strive to be amazing or better, because they simply care a great deal about their products, people, communities and environment.
