Many of us have experienced their care with our own loved ones so we are delighted to be able to support them with our charity coffee.” ”The coffee blend was created to be versatile enough for caterers to use in traditional espresso machines, and in the growing number of workplaces that have the latest ‘bean to cup’ machines. MannVend’s experts worked hard to create a perfect roast that would work with both types of equipment, while also being strong enough to use with either fresh or granulated milk. Using sustainably sourced Brazilian and Colombian beans they created a rich, smooth, full roasted blend with tasting notes of chocolate, berries and caramel.Anne Mills, Chief Executive of Hospice Isle of Man, said:“We are very grateful to Tracey and MannVend for choosing us as the next charity to benefit from their innovative fundraising campaign. To ensure our services are available to our patients and their families at absolutely no cost to them, we need to fundraise over £5 million each and every year, so partnerships such as this one with MannVend are extremely important to us. We look forward to seeing how the campaign develops over the next year and we’ll be sure to enjoy the #IOMstory coffee ourselves!”The fundraising campaign will continue from now until the end of 2022 when the total fundraised will be announced.
