Our Customers – Dierdre and Andrew of Peak Bean Coffee

This week our feature customers are Deirdre and Andrew from Hayfield, who are also owners of Peak Bean Coffee based in Furness Vale. We have been proud stockists of their coffee from the beginning of their coffee journey.

Peak Bean was born out of a love for coffee. Andrew and Deirdre have always felt good coffee can be accessible to everyone, no matter where they are on their coffee journey. They strive to roast and blend beans so that when that first coffee of the day is consumed, it brings a little joy and a smile to someone’s face. 

Peak Bean began it’s roots in a small café run by Deirdre and Andrew, found in the beautiful village of Hayfield, High Peak, Derbyshire. Alongside serving delicious home-made cakes and soups, they loved serving a variety of barista standard coffee drinks from their traditional coffee machines.

However, whilst they aimed to source locally as much as possible, there was a struggle to find a freshly roasted coffee to serve. So they decided to try it for themselves, bought a roaster and started experimenting with their very own blends.

Peak Bean continues to carefully roast single bean batches, create blends, and now have a range of freshly roasted coffees that they are really proud of: they burst with freshness, flavour and really hit the spot.

Dedicated to keeping their traceability of product as transparent as possible, Peak Bean likes to know where the coffee beans they roast come from. This is why they source from various cooperatives and organisations, paying that little bit extra to help those farmers and enable them to put some of their profits back into their local communities. Many of the cooperatives are certified Organic as well as with The Fairtrade Foundation and Rainforest Alliance.

It is a creation designed to captivate your taste buds with a harmonious blend of premium ingredients, making it the ultimate showstopper. Delicious served with butter, lemon zest, Parmesan and parsley.  

Spinach & Ricotta Ravioli – These Ravioli are square-shaped pasta parcels made from 00 and Durum Wheat flour with a high free-range egg content (30%) – this is a sign of superior quality. Spinach & Ricotta Ravioli is the most traditional and well-known Italian variety of ravioli. The delicious and creamy filling is made from scratch in the La Tua’s London kitchen by cooking whole spinach leaves with a bit of garlic and then adding fresh ricotta cheese and Italian grated cheese. This filling is a firm favourite which is only reflected by the number of awards it’s acquired. We suggest serving up with olive oil and Parmigiano Reggiano or gently coating with a Sage Butter Sauce.

Tomato & Mozzarella Tortelloni – These Artisan Tortelloni are hand folded one by one to incorporate more filling. The pasta has a very high Free Range egg percentage (30%) and La Tua use a special blend of 00 and Durum Wheat flour so that the pasta holds the cooking very well. This filling features a classic taste combination that combines tasty marinated tomatoes with premium Fresh Italian mozzarella and basil: fresh and full of flavour, this is a simple and truly beautiful Italian filling and an all time favourite!

This week’s boxes

This weeks £25 and £15 boxes contain all the fresh ingredients to make our lovely celeriac and pear soup. Celeriac is a classic vegetable to make soup from, but adding pear and ginger takes it to another level. This is brilliant made ahead then frozen. Serve with toasts spread with creamy blue cheese (perfect with our montagnolo)

Celeriac is probably one of the ugliest vegetables. This unsung hero of the vegetable world, knobbly and odd-shaped has a subtle, celery-like flavour, with nutty overtones. Try it as mash, oven roasted with olive oil and garlic, slow-cook dishes, or in its classic form, and as they do in France, as a remoulade. If you get a minute take a look at Jack Burns website, this is where our celeriac are from this week. The whole process of planting harvesting and storing is really interesting, celeriac is their most important crop, they have some great recipe ideas, the celeriac and blue cheese soup looks particularly good, definitely one we will try.

We haven’t included any salad items for quite a few weeks, so this week we are excited to include new season Spanish Marmande tomatoes – a ribbed tomato, fleshy and juicy. Slightly tart, but sweet and fragrant. They will arrive with a green-tinge, don’t wait for them to turn completely red. Marmande tomatoes ripen from the inside out, so some will remain slightly green on the outside even at their ripest.

We have included Romero peppers which are exceptionally sweet and crunchy, these Spanish peppers are perfect for salads or snacking, they make a great packed lunch dipped in our delicious houmous. These are also delicious roasted. You can roast whole then skin and dress with olive oil, garlic and herbs. These will keep in the fridge for around 5 days in an airtight container, if you would like to keep them longer you can cover them in oil and put in a kilner jar and they will keep for a few weeks.
