04/06/19 7 Essential Tips For Making Great Coffee At Home Or Work

Mastering a few fundamentals to making good coffee can result in a much better flavour. The temperature of your water, brewing duration and the quality of the coffee itself can result in a much better brew. Here we look at making great coffee using beans. There are of course lots of choices and the right choice of beans is personal to you.

1. The most obvious – buy great quality coffee beans! Whole beans are the best. Never re-use beans after brewing.

2. Make sure you grind your coffee just before brewing.

3. Keep your coffee stored in an airtight container, away from direct sunlight. It’s not a good idea to freeze the beans, unless you are intending to use them after two weeks.

4. Use a good amount of coffee, and the right proportion of coffee to water. One to two tablespoons of ground coffee for every six ounces of water, or to be more specific for every 1 gram of coffee, use 17 grams of water.

5. Find the right grind size for your coffee beans and aim for a uniform grind. If your coffee is to bitter it may be that the grind is too fine.

6. Don’t use boiling water as this can sour the coffee. Control the temperature of your water. Somewhere between 195 and 202 degrees is adequate.

7. Use quality tools. Buy the right bean grinder and coffee maker. Make a good investment in your coffee drinking future and the results will be a great taste.

29/01/19 Our Catering Range Has Increased

We have been providing business catering supplies to a wide range of business sectors and organisations throughout the UK for many years. Tea, coffee, vending and biscuits are a huge part of our product range and demand for these lines is getting bigger every year.

According to recent research approximately 86% of the UK’s full-time workers drink tea and coffee every day, for many people a regular caffeine boost helps increase endurance and performance throughout the working day, which can be a big plus for employers, and due to the recent rise of café culture and big brand high street coffee outlets many employees are more aware and will take time out to indulge and spend time in coffee shops. However, some employers are yet to recognise the benefits to a business of providing basic catering essentials to their workforce within their own premises.

According to more research, 75% of staff buy their coffee and tea out of office, resulting in an estimated 40 hours of lost office time per employee each year. Recent studies have shown that employees consider access to high quality coffee is an important workplace perk, proving that the company cares about its workers.

15/02/2018 WEBSITE CHANGES DUE MARCH 2018

With the continued growth of NWT sending out 3rd party delivery orders, we have decided to make our website more compatible for ordering in Single Units. As of March 2018, you will notice significant changes to the way you order your Single Units. Instead of seeing case prices first, you will now see Single Units as the main focus, with prices for Cases a secondary option.

Fear not, all discounted prices for cases will remain the same. We will send out multiple reminders before the change so that you do not order the wrong quantities. We believe this will benefit all customers going forward, as there are considerable savings to be made using NWTs 3rd Party Direct Service.

The new facility will give the group an extra 1000 pallet bays and will incorporate the current external import centre also based in Huyton. " Moving more of our distribution and storage under one roof will streamline our services to cope with growing demand on order processing and storage, it will also give NWT the space to develop into other areas of distribution.
