Brewer & Bean Coffee

We believe if you want something done to perfection, you need to do it yourself; that’s why St Austell Brewery created our own Brewer & Bean coffee. Here in Newquay, we use only specially sourced beans blended to excellence, to give you a rich delicious coffee with smooth undertones. We even offer a loyalty card, so you can enjoy some Cornish roasted bean goodness for free!
