A coffee at Café Stowa will help support Armed Forces veterans

Monday 6 February 2023

Café Stowa at West Stow Anglo Saxon Village boasts a fresh coffee machine installed by Combat2Coffee - this local not for profit business, based in the Constitutional Club in Guildhall Street, Bury St Edmunds, supports Armed Forces veterans who may be struggling with life outside of service.

Combat2Coffee was formed by former Royal Anglian soldier Nigel Seaman after being diagnosed with PTSD. Nigel’s fascination to work with coffee led him to use it as a vehicle to help others. Their coffee is sourced directly from a farm in Brazil which allows the farmer and his family to receive 2 1/2 times more cost per kilo than they would if they sold their coffee to a trader.

They roast the coffee in a speciality roaster near Woodbridge Suffolk. The coffee is roasted by an ex-serviceman of 15 years, this guarantees our slogan "Roasted Toasted and Poured by Veterans’’.

So visit Café Stowa, open daily, Monday to Sunday from 10am-4pm for sandwiches, cakes, hot snacks and a great cup of coffee!
