The essence of the business is to serve award-winning, great quality, consistent specialty coffee with expertly-extracted coffee beans roasted locally in Devon.
Using only biodegradable/recyclable coffee accessories and locally sourced fresh farm milk, supporting sustainable coffee plantations and direct trade. The van is kitted out to be as eco-friendly as possible too.
Wishing to go fully off grid, we added a discreet Panasonic HIT 330W high performance solar module with a MPPT smart solar charger from Victron Energy.
To ensure precision monitoring the BMV 712 smart battery monitor was added, the fuel gauge for the 220Ah Victron AGM on board.
“Freshly roasted ‘BRAZILIAN & EL SALVADOR’ (Black Bear) coffee beans from our Devon award-winning micro roaster Coffee Factory, and a selection of Brew Bar filtered coffee served at our eco-friendly van.
At 51 Degrees North Coffee Company, we aim to serve good quality, consistent speciality coffee and drinks, supporting local suppliers and roasters and using organic, direct or fairtrade and eco-friendly principles and products.”
Members of plastic free North Devon with local products and fairtrade principles, and take it from us, their coffee is just awesome!!
