 [ About This Video ]

At Waterhead we are always looking for new ideas to improve what we do by using innovative and creative methods. After doing some research we wanted to find a way of producing the freshest coffee for our customers.

Mark Needham and the team traveled to Limini Coffee in Bradford to learn how to use a new Roastilino coffee roaster which we have just installed so everyday we can expertly roast the finest selected Arabica coffee beans for our guests.

For our new coffee roaster, we source beans from some of the best coffee growers around the world from Brazil, Kenya, Guatemala, Ethiopia and many others. These are purchased as Green beans, which is basically raw coffee beans.

We expertly roast everyday which gives us the freshest artisan brewed coffee in the Lake District. Soon our customers will be able to enjoy there favourite coffee in the Bar and Grill whilst taking in the breathtaking views over Windermere.
