Perkee coffee carnival


Our annual Perkee Coffee Carnival recently took place at Kachette in Old Street. It included a wonderfully, diverse range of coffee products and partners. The highlight of the event was the showcase of Harmony, a premium coffee from Peru roasted by Bella Barista and Notes Coffee Roasters, who also roasted the new Soppexcca, elevating this amazing coffee to the highest standard. Perkee is proud to present this beautiful coffee, meticulously roasted by Notes. Attendees had the opportunity to sample Perkee’s new retail tins and cold brew coffee, which were prominently displayed. Most importantly, the event included the announcement of this year’s BMBC winners.
