We love Coffee at Ainsty Inns, whether it’s a morning wake me up or an evening after dinner drink you’ll find us serving our coffee throughout the day. When we started out four years ago we took a long time searching the local area for the best supplier to match our exacting standards and then we discovered York Coffee Emporium.

Instantly welcomed by Laurance and Philippa, we were shown around their premises on the outskirts of York and were instantly drawn in by their love for everything coffee. As we took the tour of their roasting, production and packaging site we knew we’d found our supplier. The aromas filling the building were enough to twist anyone’s arm!


We’ve been very fortunate to have a special Four Bean Blend supplied to our sites and this continues today. Our Four Bean Blend includes beans from Brazil, Columbia, Ethiopia and Java giving it a superb full bodied flavour but with a sweetness and deep mocha bite.

This is achieved by expertly blending just the right amount of beans together from each country. Each country offers something slightly different in terms of flavours with Brazilian beans providing sweetness, Columbian for nutty notes, Ethiopian for fruity flavours and finally Java for richness and butteriness.

All of York Coffee Emporium coffees are ethically sourced from green coffee buyers who are committed to excellent coffee, excellent standards and paying their farmers an excellent price. They source, roast, blend and pack the coffee themselves, to ensure that the coffee makes as few journeys as possible once it has left the farm.

Since Ainsty Inns was born we have seen York Coffee Emporium grow too, culminating in a move to a new site in April 2016 to satisfy demand! If you want to help them grow they also take orders online so you can have an Ainsty Inns Coffee at Home!
