Fancy a sunset picnic with friends? Run and find those twinkle lights, your cutest jacket, and a hot coffee for that evening breeze.

And of course, your fave bffs!

Don’t worry we haven’t forgotten about the snacks and drinks! In the summer, it is so important you stay hydrated, so why not snatch up our Florence Coffee Concentrate to make the best, quick and easy drinks. All you need is your Coffee Concentrate, fave syrups, ice, and milk (or alternative of your choice). Now grab our aesthetic glass tumbler to make those pics look as good as you! Or if you don’t mind waiting a few minutes for a brew, you can take your pick from our delicious blends. These include a bittersweet, chocolatey coffee with a perfect balance of hazelnut and treacle flavours to sip on during those mindful moments. Or our blend that allows you to be authentically brew, with a hint of soft spices and citrus along with the delicious taste of roasted nuts. These blends can be hot or cold, so if your evening picnic starts to cool down, we have the steamy coffee for you. And if you need a snack to go with it, this coffee can be paired perfectly with a s’more round the fire, who wouldn’t want to toast marshmallows and sip coffee at a cosy picnic?
