Barista Coffee is Coming
This week the Carlton front of house team visited the Voyager Coffee Academy in Buckfast, South Devon, for their kick off training in the art of coffee. Dawn, Kirsti and (our newest recruit) Sheena spent the day honing their knowledge on coffee beans, the basics of roasting beans and the difference between a latte and a cappuccino. Their knowledge on milk, bubbles and aeration is contagious. Dawn is so enthused she can’t wait to serve the best flat white in town.
Our new state of the art San Remo machine is being installed in mid-June just in time for our anniversary and the launch of our new event spaces and of course this year’s busy summer season.
The new owners of the Carlton have swung behind local suppliers and are proud to showcase Miles tea and beverage supplies in the bedroom hospitality and Voyager coffee in the brasserie. Both are local producers and suppliers. On the coffee front we will be serving Mustang blend beans ahead of a further trial of Roadtrip beans. You can sample these great espresso blends in Ilfracombe, only at the Carlton, from late June 2016.
