Our very own Brighton coffee artisans make their blends from freshly roasted beans, roasted in Brighton and delivered direct to you. Sit back with a cup of their fair trade premium coffee, and imagine you are sitting in one of their beautiful Brighton cafes watching the world go by. Buying for a coffee lover but know nothing about the dark stuff? These guys are great at helping choose (As a tea drinker married to a coffee addict I can vouch for this!) Planning on visiting next year, make a point of dining in one of their cafes too – a real treat.

Flour Pot – Brilliantly baked goods and books

Alongside their delicious baked goods and fantastic gift sets, (if you haven’t tried their doughnuts you really must) the Flour Pot have joined forces with the Way of the Witch, a magical, limited edition, adventure book for 7-12 year olds, all set around Brighton’s iconic streets. Most importantly 30% of the profits from this book go to the Rockinghorse charity, the fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s hospital order yours here: Way And The Witch
