Welcome to Bean & Bud, Harrogate’s original Speciality Coffee and Tea shop. At Bean & Bud we serve the very best single-origin coffee, from some of the UK’s best roasters, alongside ethically sourced loose-leaf tea and hot chocolate.
We are a small, friendly coffee shop in the heart of Harrogate town centre, where you can enjoy all-day breakfast goodies, irresistible sweet-treats and lite-lunches, alongside our famous speciality coffee, tea and hot chocolate. We pride ourselves in sourcing the best Yorkshire produce, supporting other local businesses, and being mindful of our environmental footprint. Open seven days a week, we are also dog-friendly and have free wi-fi available.
We work in partnership with some of the UK’s best independent roasters to bring you a changing programme of single-origin coffee, that reflects the seasons and availability.
After long journeys from the coffee-growing corners of the world, our philosophy is always to respect the bean, and the farmers who have spent a great amount of time and energy producing a high-grade product. To preserve the quality of these fabulous beans we take our time making each and every cup, grinding the coffee carefully, then timing and weighing each and every espresso shot to ensure we preserve the complex flavours available. The end result is always a smooth, flavour-filled drink that’s never bitter, but always a delight!
Whether you prefer your coffee black or made with milk, we always prepare our espresso with a double shot to ensure we preserve the integrity of the flavours. Our milk is textured so that it’s creamy and sweet, and never over-heated to avoid spoiling the espresso with burnt and bitter flavours!
All of our whole-leaf tea is ethically sourced from tea plantations and individual tea gardens in the world’s major tea-growing nations.
Working with UK based merchants such as ESTATE TEA CO and TRUMPERS TEA, we are able to attest to the provenance of each tea we serve and sell on retail. Our full range of teas include Black, Green, Oolong & White, and our herbal infusions provide floral and fruity, caffeine-free alternatives.
Each of our teas and infusions is served in either a ‘stump’ teapot, or a glass tea-eire, and for each preparation we weigh the leaves and water before presenting it with a carafe and timer so that you can decant the tea once it has reached the perfect infusion.
We love to talk about tea, and the stories behind them, so if you need any further information, please don’t be afraid to ask. With so many fantastic teas to choose from we are happy to make a recommendation according to your tastes – or why not try something new today> You might be pleasantly surprised!
On the other hand, if it’s just a ‘damned good cuppa’ you’re after, then you can’t go wrong with our house “Bean & Bud Blend”. This classic breakfast tea is blended specifically for us to provide a clean and refreshing brew that works well on its own, or with a splash of milk. It isn’t available anywhere else, but you can pick up a bag from our retail shelves in the shop!
