Cherizena, a Leicestershire-based supplier of rare and premium coffee beans and artisan producer of flavoured Colombian coffee, is the latest store to open at the popular Engine Yard retail development at Belvoir Castle.
The store opened its doors on Saturday 23 June, following the success of chocolatier Cocoa Amore and plant centre The Idle Mole, which launched in recent weeks to great acclaim.
Cherizena, which already has an established online customer base and is a regular at markets and food festivals across the UK, sources rare and premium coffee beans from around the world. It also produces artisan-flavoured coffee, with more than 40 speciality blends to choose from.
The company has both popular and unusual flavours, such as Maple & Pecan, Chocolate Brownie and Sticky Gingerbread and all are available as regular or decaffeinated, beans or ground coffee. A new range of teas has also been developed and sourced for the Engine Yard.
Her Grace the Duchess of Rutland, CEO of Belvoir Castle and the driving force of the Engine Yard, said:
“The openings of the Idle Mole plant centre and Cocoa Amore have been highly successful and it’s great to see the latest store to launch. Britain is becoming far more demanding in its coffee tastes and we are sure that Cherizena’s extraordinary range of products will satisfy everyone from those who are just dipping their toes to committed coffee connoisseurs.”
Cherizena owner Tanith Wesson said:
“We can’t wait to demonstrate our collection of speciality coffee and tea sourced from all over the world to visitors to this idyllic space at the Engine Yard. We have built up a great customer base from our online store and visiting events, markets and food fairs so we’re looking forward to opening our doors to our first store.”
Adding to the exciting announcements of the latest store openings, the Engine Yard has also revealed that the luxury spa, Belvoir Casa, will stock premium products supplied by Acqua Di Parma for its full range of hair and beauty treatments.
Butcher and farm shop, The Country Victuallers, craft and toy store, Crafts4Kids, homewares retailer, Margo and Plum, and specialist deli, Jorge Artisan Foods, will be opening in the coming weeks.
