Teddington is the latest place to take Totally Locally! A crack team of volunteers is already working late into the night to bring you the launch event on Christmas Lights-Up evening, Thursday 29th November 2012.
Totally Locally is about opening your eyes to the great independent shops and businesses which grace Teddington. It’s here to encourage you to turn into the door of that shop you walk past every day. Go on, give it a try – there’s a good chance you’ll want to go back.
It’s about supporting local growers, producers and services: be it furniture makers, farmers, accountants or bakers.
Most of all though it’s about people. Great people. People who care about what they do, what they grow, what they make and ultimately the people they sell it to.
And it’s about all of us. A collective responsibility of all of us to support these businesses. Because when we do our towns thrive. If you support a local shop or business, chances are they support at least ten others. And those ten support another ten each. It’s the very structure of what we have come to love about this area.
Astrora Coffee sells premium quality coffee freshly roasted within the shop. They also stock a variety of coffee making equipment and spare parts for use at home and in the office, as well as a selection of teas, chocolates, honey and jams. They hand roast green Arabica coffees from selected farms in Africa, Central and South America, and Asia.
Single-origin coffees are stocked from countries including Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Guatemala, India, Kenya, Peru and Rwanda, and two popular blends from Brazil, including a decaf.
Astrora Coffee is an independent new business. The company (Astrora Limited) was established in April 2008. It offers a unique service to the Teddington community and surrounding areas so local residents can enjoy the distinct flavours of single-origin, freshly roasted coffees at home. The guiding principle of the business is to provide a special selection of the best coffee beans available, roasted in the shop to the highest standard.
If you are lucky, you might arrive in the shop while coffee is being roasted. It will be a unique and interesting experience to observe green coffee beans turning in the drum of the classic machine, changing to yellow, then cinnamon and finally the beautiful brown roasted coffee being dumped into the cooler giving out complex and delightful aroma.
