BM launches cold brew coffee in time for summer

Perkee Cold Brew Coffee

BM Caterers has launched its first Perkee cold brew coffee under its Fairtrade Perkee coffee range, in time for the summer.

The beans have been sourced from BM’s coffee partner, the Soppexcca cooperative in Nicaragua, which supports local community education, infrastructure and sustainability initiatives. The product itself is packaged in a 3l box with an easy pouring system for speedy serving. 

It will be available across all BM client site coffee bars from 20 May after being officially launched at BM’s coffee carnival, where the winner of the company barista competition was also announced.

Adrian Steenkamp, coffee brand manager, at BM Caterers said: “There’s been a growing trend and increasing demand for cold brew coffee and cold beverages in recent years – simply served over ice, our new Perkee cold brew coffee fills this gap perfectly. We’ve already got some great reviews, with people saying it reminded them of being on holiday. We expect it to be really popular over the coming months, particularly if we get a hot summer this year, so fingers crossed!”

BM’s Perkee coffee made it the first caterer to win two stars in the Great Taste Awards. It was also shortlisted for an Edie Sustainability Leaders Award for Social Sustainability and Community Impact and won the Sustainable Restaurant Association Award for the business’ ongoing support for global farming.
